Low costs for foundations

Stalle in metallo

The ice-skating rink has been built on a poor soil, with a real low carrying capacity. The problem for the foundations has been solved thanks to a steel frame held up by light wire ropes: the pile centres the load into two points setting the other areas free. This allows the removal of expensive supporting fencings and the reduction of erection time.
