Soil, subsoil and groundwater, surveys and non-destructive analysis

Gruppo Ingegneria Torino - Geologia e Geotecnica
GIT-Icone-010-color

Gruppo Ingegneria Torino pays particular attention to a correct geological, hydrogeological and geotechnical characterization of the sites where it operates, in order to guarantee the correct planning and management of the projects of each Sector, with a constant verification of the quality and effectiveness of the work carried out by its technicians through surveys aimed at the knowledge of the subsoil.

The activity of the Sector is therefore constantly oriented towards the theoretical study, and in the field, of the main problems that condition and qualify the execution of all civil and industrial engineering works that interfere with the soil, subsoil and surface and underground water circulation.

The experience gained in this field allows us to offer technical consultancy services in the field of civil, environmental and industrial engineering, in the mining and quarrying field, in the field of renewable energies and infrastructures, and in the field of groundwater management. The sector aims to offer a consultancy service that allows clients and designers to identify the most suitable and sustainable geological and geotechnical investigation techniques from a technical and economic point of view.

Gruppo Ingegneria Torino‘s technicians also support the customer in the authorization and executive phases regulated in the various fields by the regulations in force.

In the activity of study and support we use technologies, instruments, techniques of direct and indirect investigation and interpretation, always up to date and in line with the latest theories in the field. This objective is guaranteed by the continuous commitment of Gruppo Ingegneria Torino in activities in the field of research, innovation and training carried out in partnership with research bodies and Italian and foreign universities.

The Group counts among its partners the researchers and university professors Monica Barbero (Geotechnics, Polytechnic University of Turin), Corrado Fidelibus (Geomechanics, CNR) e Fabrizio Barpi (Construction Science, Polytechnic University of Turin).
