On the east side of Gibraltar, above the small village of Catalan Bay, is an area of some 130,000 sq m which has been in use since the early 1900s as a rainwater catchment for the territory's water supply. Our geotechnical engineers and environmental consultants worked on the decommissioning of the catchment and the reinstatement of the sloping site. We also undertook project management. The site rises 250m at a uniform angle of 34 degrees across its width. It is part of a dune structure, believed to have been formed in the period when the Mediterranean was a dry basin. For use as a catchment, it had been covered with corrugated steel sheeting, and stabilisation and environmental improvements were required to make it safe and to meet EU Protected Habitat requirements. < ...
