Portier Cove reclamation project, Monaco

Portier Cove reclamation project

The outsized Portier Cove urban extension project will reclaim six hectares of land from the sea to accommodate 60,000 sq. metres of residential space as well as public facilities. To meet the technical and environmental challenges of this colossal undertaking, Menard employed three ground improvement techniques: vibrocompaction; “bottom feed” stone columns; and “top feed” stone columns (more than 5,000 linear metres installed).
