the pit of the heritage building


Explanation:
Is the original text related to a preserved building?

Tombado = result of the act of "tombamento" = consider a building as heritage because of the historical/cultural importance it had in the past, in order to protect/preserve it.

I would probably go with the term pit rather than moat.
You can also consider using "protected building" instead of "heritage building" if you feel it will be too formal.

confined space/gap under toppled cargo


Explanation:
If this involves confined-space work within a port area, I would guess something along these lines.

And, as mentioned by Luiz Fernando and by Mark, "foço" is probably a typo, either for "fosso" or "poço".

Needless to say, the typo should be corrected if this ever makes it into the glossary (which I don't think it will) :)
