Airbus factory in Hamburg, Germany 

In Hamburg, Menard signed one of its most important soil improvement contracts for the consolidation of the ‘quasi-liquid’ muck under the 1,200,000 m² platform for the A380 assembly factory. Menard was in charge of the planning of the whole works and designing and executing the soil improvement using a combination of vertical drains and Menard VacuumTM consolidation. 30 million lm of drains were installed and 11 million m3 of sandy fill were placed within the very stringent EADS-imposed schedule. 

The Menard group develops foundation solutions based on ground improvement and reinforcement technologies. Its treatments eliminate the need for the deep foundations traditionally used to support surface structures.
