Rehabilitation of the Etats-Unis Dock in Monaco
In recent months, the company Matière® has intervened on the port of Monaco to allow the rehabilitation of the Quai des Etats-Unis between the North Darse located in the West and the North Dike in the East.
This reconstruction operation started at the end of 2016 and was staggered over 3 years. The Monegasque shipyard entrusted to Matière® consists of demolishing the existing wharf dating back to the 1970s.
Then reconstitute it almost identically from concrete beams and pre-slabs anchored on piles to gain land surface.
Every year, the operation is interrupted for a short time and the wharf is returned to traffic to allow the passage of the famous Formula 1 Grand Prix of Monaco.
The beams and concrete slabs are made by our factory Brive-La-Gaillarde.
Here are the characteristics of the structure that will have to withstand the whirring of F1 cars:
- 60 reinforced concrete beams of 25 t;
- 500 pre-slabs 4 m long, 2.50 m wide and 0.25 m high.
