Waterproofing when concrete casting

Concrete casting involves creating a new concrete element as a continuation of an already existing one. Most often it’s impossible to create a monolithic block with a single casting: consider, for example, very large structures or the connection between vertical and horizontal walls. With concrete casting you can obtain monolithic structures with their own characteristics,

GEO - Controlling surface erosion with biomats and geomats

Soil erosion is an almost inevitable natural phenomenon that has become a greater concern in recent years due to the worsening climate situation – in Italy, for example, 132 extreme weather events were recorded between January and July 2022, a higher number than the annual average over the last decade – combined with long periods

TeMa Building Solutions - Parcheggio sul tetto: soluzione estrema di recupero spazio

City centres are overcrowded with vehicles and restricted areas, car parks are “stressed” and there are never enough spaces to go round.

TeMa Interior Solutions - Hotels and acoustic comfort

Acoustic well-being is also included in the concept of comfort in hotels. Vibrations and sound waves disturb guests and there can be many sources of origin: panoramic pools with adjacent rooftop bars, air conditioners, bathroom drains, laundries, lifts, but above all corridors and areas where people with upright suitcases are constantly passing through.   In

TeMa Geo Solutions - Tunnels and the problems of groundwater inflows and water seepage

We are heading towards summer and finally, after two years of the pandemic, people will be making a mass exodus to tourist resorts again.
