Harbour Stockyard projects : reinforcement of four ore storage sites

Menard was awarded the contract to reinforce the ground for four ore storage sites where steelmaking equipment is now to be stored. The task was complex due to the non-uniform nature of the ground and the weakness of a number of areas located on former coastal reclaimed land.

The solution was to install Controlled Modulus Columns reinforced with steel cages on peripheral columns sunk to a depth of 8 to 18 metres.
