Destabilized hillsides and potential landslides can be the cause for large scale safeguarding measures at construction sites. The volume of destabilized material plays a major role in determining the amount and cost of safeguarding measures. In this case study we present the process of estimation of potential landslide volumes using geophysical methods in a geologically complex environment. The field work for this case study was carried out at potentially hazardous locations on the construction site of the railroad and highway leading from the city of Sochi, Russia to the venues of the Olympic winter games 2014.
