Design, Consultancy and Construction Supervision
 
since 1972

Geotecna Progetti is a Design and Consulting Firm operating in Civil Engineering and Geoengineering, which operates in Italy and abroad.
Estabilished in 1972 by Dr. Eng. Giuseppe Baldovin and Partners as Geotecna Technoconsult in order to form a multidisciplinary professional team to design and supervise primary hydraulics and geotechnical works in strict cooperation with an hystorical Italian geotechnical laboratory and academic experts, it assumed its current name in 1974.


Geotecna Progetti carries out the following activities:
  • Design, Consultancy and Construction Supervision for:
    • dams and hydraulic structures

    • geology e hydrogeology
    • water research
    • soil and rock mechanics
    • seismic hazard and dynamic analyses
    • instrumentation data control and construction follow up
    • environmental screening and impact assessment
In particular, the Company operates in the hydraulic structures and dams field (both for new interventions as well as for existing works) so much so that reached the milestone of more than 70 designed Dams, of which large part builded, combined with several hydropower plants, water conveyance networks for drinkable, irrigation and industrial use.
