Port of Brest Extension, France

Port of Brest Extension

Menard worked on the extension of the commercial port in Brest as part of the construction of a 400 metre quay and a storage area for heavy loads. Three techniques – soil mixing, jet grouting, and vertical drains – were employed to reinforce and consolidate the existing silt and avoid the need for dredging. The solution is technically effective and also protects the environment.
