Work: Restoration & Removal of an underground aquifer
1 stone house
The house was built on a significant gradient and there is a road at the back of the property.
The back side of the house is attached to the road and, below one corner, there was an aquifer flowing below the house.We built a retaining wall built to create a paved area in front of the house, piping the roof rain water out. The building had a poor water drainage, therefore it was necessary to design a drainage around the house to remove the residual underground water.
Steel reinforced concrete slab was designed to increase the, connecting it to the house and the wall to increase the “effetto scatolare” (box behaviour).
