Bauer has undertaken soil stabilisation works for a new luxury resort along the bay of Kotor – a Unesco World Heritage Site – in Montenegro.
Located along approximately 1.7km of coastline, a five-building complex with a built-up area covering around 135,000m2 will be constructed.

As the subsoil of the project area mainly consists of loosely deposited, fine-grained, non-cohesive soils and those at high risk of soil liquefaction in case of an earthquake, developer Azmont commissioned Bauer to execute the necessary soil improvement works.
123,000m2 of Bauer’s Mixed-in-Place elements (individual elements and walls) with lengths up to 23m and a wall thickness of 0.55m have been installed into the subsoil. The company said these elements improve the strength and the average elastic modulus of the soil and prevent soil liquefaction in case of an earthquake.
The works, which started in March 2015, have been undertaken over a construction period of eight months.
