The geotechnical studies performed on the area of the future fishing port of Tavira, south of Portugal, demonstrate that both the stability as well as the allowable settlements of some of the structures planned were not guaranteed. In this paper, an overview of the foundation soil characteristics is outlined and some of the solutions analyzed for the particular case of some vertical quays, as well as the comparison of the results obtained with different soil improvement methods are presented. For those quays, the estimated settlements and their evolution in time are discussed, as well as the observational system to be implemented for their control and assessment of design assumptions.
