Consolidation works, structural restoration and hydraulic protection had to be completed before winter, to avoid any risk of river floods. Trevi was awarded the contract under “urgent procedure”. Trevi was selected thanks to its long lasting experience in consolidation works and the ability to combine high operating capacity (personnel working 24/7 (on three shifts), and equipment made available at very short notice) with a strong design capacity.
The company’s Design, Research and Development (DRD) Department has been collaborating with the client’s engineers since the start of the project to the development of the design solutions. Given the urgency of the project, the DRD played a crucial role, since in the first phase of works, design activities and job site works had to be carried out almost simultaneously.
The operating sequence is based on the principle of “progressively increasing structural stability and safety” of both existing and ongoing structures so as to always work under acceptable safety conditions.
