Commercial project carried out in Montreal in the Ahuntsic district near the Pont-Viau. The client wanted to stop frequent water infiltration on one side of his building. At the time of the digging, we were facing a deteriorated moellon foundation as a whole. With the help of an engineer, the option chosen was to design a concreteextension. A structure was designed using rebar steel and a bottom-bottom system suitable for a foundation. A second sole for this section was cast before designing the extension of the wall.
This process not only served to protect the existing wall, but to create an appropriate surface for the installation of elastomer and alveolar membranes.
For water management, a partial French drain system has been installed.
Following the embankment, a foundation was built for the future asphalt coating that was installed the following year.
