In the Beginning… There is the Earth
Description of project:
Consistent with the urban renewal project, and with the aim of accommodating the growth in passenger throughout, Nice Centre station is being redeveloped as a multi-mode interchange. The first phase of this redevelopment comprises 3 main structures: pedestrianizing the forecourt and creating two kiosks, creating a new pedestrian access to the Durante tunnel, and restructuring the West building, with in particular the creation of a public passage on the ground floor of the building.
The natural context of the site is marked by the presence of ground with mediocre mechanical characteristics, the presence of adjoining structures that must not be destabilized during the earthmoving operations, and the suspicion of a risk of liquefaction for the reference earthquake.
Missions entrusted to FONDASOL:
G12 pre-project geotechnical study including the following investigations:
G2 project geotechnical study, PRO phase:
FONDASOL has proposed setting the final structures (for the kiosks and the link to the tunnel) on a raft, once the risk of liquefaction is ruled out following a campaign of SPT testing.
Date mission carried out: April–September 2012
