Jan De Nul Group has just released these amazing photos of construction works on the Monaco’s Portier Cove land reclamation project.

The project includes the construction of an eco-neighborhood primarily consisting of housing (60,000 m²), public facilities, an extension to the Grimaldi Forum, a public car park, a marina with pedestrian wharves, a landscaped park, a seafront promenade and a shaded, planted walkway running the length of the Japanese Garden.

Thanks to all our study, our client Groupe Bouygues, could convince the authorities that environmental impact of dredging is manageable. Our marine environment teams will remain present after the works for follow up,” Jan De Nul said.

The construction technique being used for the maritime infrastructure is a fill enclosed by a band of 18 trapezoid reinforced concrete caissons, 26 meters tall and weighing 10,000 tonnes each, equipped with absorption chambers.

These precast units will help reduce breaches by strong swells and protect the exposed areas of the project.
