21 September 2023
Soil engineering specialist Trevi has completed the foundation works for the new €180 million Santa Giulia Arena in Milan, Italy.
The multi-purpose sports hall designed by British architect David Chipperfield and Arup, will host the men’s ice hockey competitions for the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan and Cortina.
Trevi has carried out the work for CTS Eventim, the German ticketing and live event organisation.
Trevi’s main work involved constructing 883 piles using CFA technology, 340 of which have a diameter of 1000mm and the remaining 543 a diameter of 1200mm.
The area of the new arena has soils consisting of sand and gravel with layers of silt and peat; the work surface is made about one metre above the water table.
Meanwhile, 100% of the excavated material produced by the excavation works was recovered for use in road construction and civil work fillings.
Trevi used equipment for excavation activities manufactured by the Soilmec Division of the Trevi Group and part of the Blue-tech line. The machinery has been designed to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions and contain noise pollution.
