Among the policies accepted in housing development is forming a large number of cooperative construction companies named Taavoni Maskane Mehr (TMM). Due to lowland type of the grounds some few meters, up to 4m, of compacted backfills are proposed in order to raise the elevation of such areas of such areas. In this research a set of data of compaction and consolidation tests are used for studying the situation in one of these projects named Haftkel project. In this regard the consolidation and settlements due to inundation of area are calculated. The results show that the condition of the project is well enough.
