Groundforce increases its European market share by supporting Italian cultural project

UK-based excavation support specialist has extended its market penetration in Europe with its work on a major museum development in Italy.

The company’s bracing products are being used to support diaphragm walls for a two-level basement on the new M9 Museum is Mestre.

The Mestre urban regeneration project which has been designed and developed by the Venice Foundation group, aims to create a cultural centre for the city and will restore an important historical building that has been closed to the public for more than a century.

Groundforce supplied its MP250’s props for the construction of two underground levels, which extend up to 9m below ground level.

Many European contractors use traditional steel bracing but, according to Groundforce, the modular hydraulic system installed at M9 reduces costs and eases the construction phasing, while minimising ground movements during excavation.
