Sosnowiec, Poland

A large ground reinforcement project

Menard teams carried out ground reinforcement works under 10 warehouses and a service station in the Sosnowiec business park. The ground was made up of mine tailings – black shale – stored for more than three decades. The largest and most representative work phase was for the future Amazon building, where Menard reinforced more than 132,000 sq. metres of ground by means of dynamic compaction and installed 1,635 dynamic replacement pillars.
The project was successfully completed despite difficult winter weather conditions and a tight schedule that required the work to be carried out in parallel with the design studies.
