Another stage has commenced at Cheval Roc in stabilisation of the slope – 25% soil nails have been installed following site clearance, scaling, regrading and installation of netting.
After the collapse in March 2016 significant works were required to ensure the stability of the slope. The north-west wing, which had a risk of collapse following the land slide had to be demolished due to structural instability, and rebuilt.
Hartigan’s engineering services comprise various stages throughout the project: conceptual design, planning, site investigation and the final design for the stabilisation. Hartgan have also been engaged to undertake the contract administration for the stabilisation as well as demolition.
The works are expected to be completed at the end of 2017 and this important phase enables the Team to progress to demolition and commencement of rebuild.
