The Church of San Domenico in L'Aquila was built in 1309 in behalf of Carlo II d'Angiò. It was damaged and consolidated several times in the last centuries own to heavy earthquakes which hit the area. The earthquake in 2009 caused crackes and collapses, especially:
Long and hard restoration and consolidation measures (still in progress) have been adopted. The project managers have developed innovative solutions to fix the structural flaws and improve the stability of the building.
Our Tectoria Coccioforte, a tri-component reinforcing system, was chosen for the covering vault of the right branch of the transept. The extrados surface of the affected vault has been consolidated by means of shoring, sealing the cracks on the extrados and applying a reinforcing casting with Tectoria COCCIOFORTE. The reinforcing casting has been anchored to perimetral walls with metal profiles.
They follow the same procedures to consolidate:
The measures adopted using Tectoria COCCIOFORTE have been collected in our large photogallery below, thanks to our Area Manager Arch. Michele Pesaola.
