Geotechnics

The design of new works or their consolidation, with the restoration of their operating conditions, in case of historic buildings, hydraulic works, bridges, viaducts and tunnels, requires an in-depth study of the physical-mechanical characteristics of the foundation soils which is part of the mandatory controls prescribed by the Technical Standards for constructions (published on SO n.8 GU n.42 on February the 20th 2018 referred to the Ministerial Decree on January the 17th 2018).

Sidercem, specialised in geotechnical investigations, has been present in this field for over thirty years and based in the two offices in Caltanissetta (CL) and in Misterbianco (CT), with the soil and rock mechanics laboratories which operate under concession pursuant to Circ 7618/STC of 08/09/2010 implementing the DPR No. 246/93.

The mandatory and voluntary activities carried out in the countryside are supported with specific expertise by a professional staff of geologists and engineers, experts in the design and programming of geotechnical and geognostic investigations in situ and in the laboratory management of geotechnical tests.
