This project of geotechnical works consisted in the stabilisation of the upper portion of the clif overhanging the Marina at Lugar de Baixo. The solution chosen was that of reforming the proile/excavating with a systematic coating of nailed projected concrete. This coating was applied in conjunction with the use of metal meshwork.
