Soil Surveys – Architectural and Structural Design – Pavement Structure Design – Construction
AND STRUCTURAL DESIGN
ABOUT CIA DE SUELOS
We have a group of qualified professionals and technicians, the necessary equipment and laboratories for the elaboration of geotechnical and geological studies, design and construction of passive and active anchors, piles, micro-piles, horizontal drains and slope stabilization, reinforced earth walls, soil improvement, with which we can offer practical and economical solutions, according to the needs of all our customers.
We form a strategic alliance between several companies that we call GRUPO TECNICO, to provide integral solutions to many of the needs required by other areas of Engineering and Construction, such as: Hydrology, Structural Design, Architecture, Topography, Structural Pathology, Micro-zoning, among others.
SOIL AND GEOTECHNICAL SURVEYS
We are specialists in the execution of Soil surveys for 30 years, where one of our strengths for its elaboration is based on our experience in Engineering Construction since our beginnings, which has allowed us to optimize solutions and designs with practical, efficient and economical sense.
We always support the elaboration of Soil surveys, with the analysis and evaluation of the Geology of the place and the region, seeking to optimize and provide safety to infrastructure and people.
STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF PAVEMENTS
Our training and experience in major road projects in the region has given us the knowledge to efficiently design asphalt, articulated and concrete pavements.
ACTIVE AND PASSIVE ANCHORAGES
We design and build containment and slope stabilization systems, based on efficient criteria for each need, relying on our extensive experience in geotechnical and civil works construction.
We design and build drainage systems for engineering works, with drains, based on efficient criteria for each need, relying on our extensive experience in geotechnical and civil works construction.
PILES AND MICROPILES
We design and build foundation systems for engineering works, with piles and micropiles, based on efficient criteria for each need, relying on our extensive experience in geotechnical and civil works construction.
EARTH WALLS REINFORCED WITH TIRES
This system of construction and stabilization of engineering works, is based on the experience and knowledge of French engineers mainly, from whom we took the fundamental principles, which were the basis for the development of the system using scrap tires, adapting to local needs and construction systems.
Our experience is supported by the design and efficient and safe construction of more than a hundred of reinforced earth walls with scrap tires, which we have developed since 1990 in many municipalities of the Department of Antioquia.
WALLS AND EARTHWORKS REINFORCED WITH GEOTEXTILES AND GEOGRIDS
We design and build containment and stabilization works for engineering projects, using geosynthetics, where we define efficient criteria for each need, relying on our extensive experience in geotechnical and civil works construction. We have extensive experience in construction of reinforced earth walls, optimization of embankments, soft areas and pavement structures, through the inclusion of geotextiles and geogrids, which lead to considerable reduction in construction costs, compared to the materials traditionally used.
CONSTRUCTION SITE INSTRUMENTATION. INCLINOMETERS AND PIEZOMETERS
We install and perform measurements and control of water movements and levels with inclinometers and piezometers in affected sites in our region.
AVALANCHE CONTROL IN RIVERS AND STREAMS
We developed an extensive research work, which led us to the implementation of a system of meshes made with steel cables and waste tires in the Ceibala stream in the municipality of Amagá in 2010, where we solved a problem of slope stability and progressive scour of the riverbed.
CONSTRUCTION OF CIVIL WORKS
We offer efficient services in the construction area, based on the experience of our professionals, who have participated in the design, management, administration, management, supervision and construction of engineering projects for over 30 years, among which are: Buildings, urbanizations, bridges, housing, road projects, shopping centers, warehouses, parks, aqueducts, sewers, tanks, canalizations, among others.
