Puerto Cancún, Mexico

First dynamic replacement use in Mexico

The dynamic replacement technique was used for the first time in Mexico to treat the peaty soils of the Puerto Cancún UC-14 project in the Quintana Roo state. This housing development project initially included a piling system made of precast piles and a reinforced concrete structure to support the roads.

Menard Mexico proposed the combination of a dynamic substitution treatment and a load-distributing layer to support the roads of this future luxury neighborhood of Cancun. Over 1,300 dynamic replacements were carried out in 3 months.
