The “pathways” are reinforced with small palisades built with wood logs increasing the use of natural materials and reducing the need for concrete and steel. The downhill side palisades are totally covered by earth, whereas the uphill palisade remains visible. It is ed complementby a geogrid and densely planted to obtain, once vegetation will be mature, a “green retaining structure”.

Comparative Risk Based Decision Making (CDA/ESM) was used at each and every step of the Balangero’s environmental restoration bid to guide the selection among possible design alternatives. As a result, the project features several interesting solutions related to environmental management, like for example the use of an aerial tramway that allows the reduction of fossil fuel use, dusts, and even produces energy sold to the regional utility company.
