ViewStar property project : an effective seismic protection solution

Menard participated in the development of a new property project, ViewStar, which comprises six residential towers as well as commercial buildings. Throughout 2017, Menard successfully installed stone columns to a depth of 17 metres to reinforce the ground. The main purpose of this work was to provide a long-term ground improvement solution to prevent liquefaction of the upper sand layer in the event of an earthquake.
