Gabion_Lisbon

Our gabions were chosen as the most cost-effective, easy-to-install and aesthetically pleasing solution

Garcia, Garcia S.A. is carrying out an industrial development project in Malveira, Portugal. The slope between the building and the adjacent road required the construction of a retaining wall. After evaluating different solutions, Maccaferri proposed a gabion wall as the most cost-effective, easy-to-install and aesthetically pleasing solution.

Garcia, Garcia S.A. is carrying out an industrial development project in Malveira, Portugal. The slope between the building and the adjacent road required a supporting structure of varying heights up to a maximum of 15m tall.

After a field visit and analysis of the terrain, Maccaferri evaluated different solutions and finally proposed a mass gravity retaining wall in double twist steel mesh gabionsThis solution turned out to be the most cost-effective and easy-to-install since the modular units are delivered flat-packed. They have the added benefit of being aesthetically pleasing and well integrated with the surroundings.

As the soil was clayey and subject to water erosion, all the analysis was carried out using Maccaferri’s MacStars software; this powerful software is aimed at dimensioning the solution to balance technical performance, environmental compatibility and architectural harmony.

Due to the degree of environmental aggressiveness, gabions with Galmac 4R (Zn90-Al10) coating were selected and 5,100 m³ of gabions were installed.
