GEOLOGY AND GEOTECHNICS
Pigra carries out the cataloguing, study and resolution of pathologies related to the geotechnical field, from landslides on slopes to foundation pathologies in singular structures, as well as damages of different types to buildings or road infrastructures.
We also perform slope monitoring and auscultation in operation and commissioning phases, using state-of-the-art technology such as drones and satellite remote sensors.
