Existing buildings

ASDEA is a leader in the market of existing buildings thanks to the dedication and care given to the application of the most innovative techniques of intervention and the use of sustainable materials, as well as sensitivity to the preservation of historical architectural heritage sites. ASDEA has carried out numerous preservation projects, including the recovery and reuse of a former winery complex in Città Sant'Angelo (PE) and the project to improve the seismic building called "Ex- GI Male" located in the Municipality of L'Aquila and built in 1932 to be designated as the seat of the National Table.

Structural Investigations

One of the most important aspects of a structural analysis on existing buildings consists of an appropriate design of the campaign of structural investigations. Thanks to the collaboration of professionals with decades of experience, ASDEA designs and organizes campaign investigations able to achieve the desired level of knowledge and to ensure the full effectiveness of the subsequent intervention of consolidation, while minimizing impact on the building’s handwork through the use of innovative investigation techniques.

Historical Structures

The analysis and design of historical structures must be performed with particular sensitivity to the protection of historical and architectural heritage, therefore strengthening interventions that minimize impact  must be used. Through the use of innovative structural strengthening techniques and with the collaboration of engineers, architects and experts in the field, ASDEA boasts extensive experience in the analysis of  static and seismic safety and design of intervention work on buildings belonging to the Italian and European  historical-architectural heritage.

Safety, Vulnerability, Reinforcement

The analysis of existing buildings performed by ASDEA ensures an appropriate assessment of structural safety and vulnerability. These analyses are performed using advanced calculation models which use mono- and bi-dimensional finite elements and meticulous structural analyses which are conducted on both local and global scales and favor design and optimization of reinforcement interventions.

Seismic Engineering, Improvement and Adaptation

ASDEA is a leader in the field of safety assessment and improvement/retrofitting of existing buildings, thanks to research done by its employees and the use of advanced analysis techniques, such as non-linear static and dynamic. In addition, the improvement and seismic upgrading designed by ASDEA are always conceived through careful optimization of the interventions and the use of innovative materials that minimize impact.
