Buildings were characterized by the presence of 6 floors above ground and 2 underground floors car parking.

— Description of Services:

Geodata provided assessment and 6 hectares characterization of soils present on a site off from a geological, geotechnical and environmental point of view and define the conditions and possible limitations of the proposed site for the construction of buildings included in the project. The scope of work also included the provision of indications and recommendations for foundations of structures and for protection of temporary excavation of construction pit. The first step consisted of the geological and hydrogeological assessment of the project area, aimed to define the Reference Geological Model (RGM). Site investigations were included in the service tasks. 30 cored boreholes were drilled up to 30m depth, with SPT tests, collection of samples, installation of piezometers; 10 penetration tests (DPH), geotechnical laboratory tests and environmental analysis on soil and water samples, geophysical investigations with MASW method and geo- electric tomography. This Final Report contained all factual data, reference geological model description, geotechnical characterization of soils, hydrogeological model and drawings, such as geological-geotechnical sections and site plan showing the location of investigations.
