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). 

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.
