The construction of a multi-storey car park in Rome, where the large building, former headquarters of the Mint and State Printing Office, is located in the very central Piazza Verdi is a new challenge that AGRIBETON is completing.
Within this majestic and historic building that represents a part of the history of our country, an important parking lot is being built consisting of four underground floors which, added to the two large access ramps, extend over an area of ​​approximately 8,000 square meters.
The historical characteristics of the building dating back to the early 1900s, and its particular location have forced us to adopt a high-tech construction system, the Top Down, which consists in creating the entire new construction, in the opposite way, starting that is, to lay the floors from the sky and then dig and lay the next floor up to the top floor, 13 meters underground.
The four floors of underground parking add up an area of ​​approximately 2,000 square meters per floor. The task was to be able to put the existing building in total safety despite the excavations reaching a depth of about 52 meters from the top of the building.
The obstacles that have been overcome are related to the logistical problems arising from the execution of a work of such magnitude that it had to take into account the delicacy of the urban fabric of the capital.
