Reconstruction of Saumur castle’s north rampart, France

To fix the collapsed north rampart of the Saumur castle, Menard repaired the rampart’s foundations from both the inside and the outside of the castle with jet grouting. An electronic surveillance system continuously monitoring the castle’s stability was also installed because the building is an historical monument and a national landmark. 

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.
