Located next to the municipal swimming pool of Campo de Ourique, in Lisbon, the work was awarded by the city council. It presents a completion time-limit of about three months and a value that amounts to 256 thousand euros approximately. The work involved the stabilisation of a slope using soil nailing, fibre-reinforced shotcrete with a thickness of 10 cm and a 2 cm finishing of shotcrete with coloring and geodren. The demolition and construction of a reinforced concrete wall have also been carried out, as well as the repair of a frame of concrete beams. The frame was filled with riprap and landscaping work includes grass and ivy planting at the base of the slope.
