The clinic's shoreline stabilization


Located along the Rivière du Nord, this stabilization project was imperative for the safety of the building. Affected by the emerald ash borer, mature ash trees located in the riverbank were at risk of falling and uprooting, potentially causing parts of the ground to collapse.

To address this urgent issue, the ash trees were first cut down to preserve the stump and root system, thereby partially supporting the riverbank. Given the steep slope along the riverbank, our team opted for a proposal involving vegetated gabion boxes, allowing the terrain to regenerate through this technique of vegetative engineering, along with indigenous planting to promote biodiversity in this environment.
