Geotub: designed for difficult worksites
15 November 2022
Geotub is the go-to innovation for building round columns on difficult construction sites. Its recycled plastic modules allow easy logistics, manual mounting, and weather resistance, making it perfect for inaccessible locations. Below are several examples of its endeavors.
The Kalasatama REDI complex was built on an inaccessible plot carved into the rock, 30 meters below the road surface. Geotub was chosen for the construction of the underground car park because it allowed manual installation, without cranes or heavy machinery.
The Non-Schengen East extension was built under a tight deadline, with the main airport building and runways still operational. Geotub provided quick installation and early removal, proving to be the least time-consuming solution.
Kerisper Bridge was a local landmark in La Trinité-sur-Mer, built in 1958. Geotub was designed for lateral installation, providing an easy reconstruction of the supporting columns.
The extension of Vélodrome Stadium required the reinforcement of pile foundations and columns within the building. Geotub was light, stackable, and reusable, allowing the installation of formwork in limited maneuvering and storage space.
The dock reconstruction in Pozzuoli required a solution that was resistant to the marine environment. Geotub was made of recycled ABS that enabled column repair in submerged conditions, which would have been difficult with timber and metal options.
