Geotechnical design and site supervision
The project consists in building a wall from a series of overlapping piles to protect and strengthen the bank of the Scrivia river and Borbera creek. Geotechnical design and site supervision have been carried out by Studio Masera Ingegneria. The different stages of work are as follows:
- soil drilling and soil strengthening using a “jet-grouting column”;
- jet-grouting column re-drilling with insertion of a reinforced steel tube;
- reinforced concrete beam construction on top of the pile wall;
- soil anchor – the pile wall is about 300 metres long.
