Damp, mould, stains and flaky plaster in basements are a homeowner’s worst nightmare. We’ve mentioned numerous times that weather events and groundwater, where not controlled properly, are the main cause of damp. Of course, it doesn’t just affect the walls, but the whole structure, including flooring, on the basement level or even on the ground
T-System is the system from TeMa Geo Solutions that includes various components for strengthening, surface erosion control, drainage and retaining used in the construction of reinforced soil retaining structures: innovation that we’ve been exploring here at TeMa since our inception 30 years ago, and that is now one of our hallmarks. Let’s take a more
The health of walls in contact with the soil — like foundations and below-grade walls — is the primary concern of the home’s occupants, especially where underground garages or basements are involved: any sign of damp or mould is evidence of damage that can have serious financial consequences in these areas of the building.

Climate change and extreme natural events are having an impact on the planet’s life balance. The current international focus on the ecological transition and the circular and green economy is making it more and more imperative to make innovative decisions on this front. This is why our TeMa team of engineers and technicians will be
Serving multiple functions, drainage geocomposites are a perfect match for geotechnical applications, while they have a number of distinctive properties making them a popular choice in the building industry, too. TeMa drainage geocomposites are light, easy to handle both by carriers and on site, quick to apply… But let’s take a look at the full
It’s interesting to realize just how much the environmental culture of a business can be a way to accelerate its development, even by allowing it to access finance that’s vital for its growth and innovation: this is where the concept of sustainable finance comes in. No self-respecting company report is complete without covering sustainability, the
We too will be at the 12th edition of the International Conference on Geosynthetics that will take place in Rome, at the Parco della Musica auditorium from 17 to 21 September 2023, and which will involve a full programme of meetings between professionals (further information about the events here). Four days of training and information
The function of retaining wall structures is to retain and reinforce soil faces. They can be built in a multitude of areas, including private ones such as gardens and vineyards, as well as public areas such as roads, railways and embankments. They meet the need to recover usable spaces as they can also be built
Slopes and embankments can be used as road or railway embankments, raised flood banks and floodplains, and even vineyards, especially in a territory such as Italy, one of the countries with the largest number of UNESCO World Heritage landscapes in the world.Many of those greened terraces are true reinforced earth structures, with their stability guaranteed
Something of an innovation in the Italian building scene, while also being a useful device for protecting the roof, the ballasted flat roof is a solution that can become a distinctive feature of either a residential or commercial building. Unlike the traditional system involving the use of concrete, using gravel is an option that brings
The term lifelong learning refers to the process aimed at ensuring skill levels keep pace with new professional needs and market innovations as they emerge. In the field of residential, commercial and infrastructure construction, technologies and work processes are developing constantly and at a heady pace, driven by research and by the demands of designers.
