Due to the existing conditionings for the implantation of the different areas that comprise Cabo Girão Tourist Resort, at Madeira Island, namely the vigorous relief and the geological-geotechnical conditions, it was necessary to conceive an important group of retaining structures, using different solutions, varying from gravity and semi-gravity cyclopean concrete structures to reinforced concrete walls and soil nailed walls or nailed slopes. This paper presents the conception of the project in its different stages and the main activities developed under the scope of the special technical assistance provided during the execution phase.
