Saigon Offshore Fabrication Engineering, Vietnam 

SOFE is a recurrent client for Menard, as we have already carried out works on a similar 20 Ha area. This project concerned the Danish quay that was built two years ago by others, and which consisted on a 15 m wide slab on piles with a sheet pile wall (land side) to allow a slope to start at -2.0 down to -7.0 in front of the quay. SOFE requested an increased bearing capacity on the land side to allow movement of their 240 t crane as well as deepening the depth by dredging in front of the quay down to -10.0. Menard designed and installed soil mixing columns to increase both the bearing capacity and to lower the earth pressure acting on the sheet piles. 


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.
