On July, 5, an annual holiday was held in honor of the appearance of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God over the waters of Lake Ladoga. As legend has it, the icon written in the 5th century, became famous for many miracles. An old church in honor of the Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God with a garden in the village of Putilovo was rebuilt and recreated in 2011-2018 by the GEOIZOL Group of companies. Specialists of GEOIZOL Project developed a project to recreate the main building of the temple, which found a new life after 75 years of oblivion during the Soviet era.
Ivan Bogdanov, Chief Designer of GEOIZOL Project (part of the GEOIZOL Group of Companies), took part in a video conference on the problems of stabilizing the base of the roadbed of the Arkhangelsk region in weak soils condition. The event was organized by the St. Petersburg Committee for Arctic Affairs.
The construction of crushed stone piles (technology for improving soil characteristics) has started in the development area of the Bely Ostrov residential complex at the address: Beloostrovskaya str., 9. GEOIZOL Project designers suggested the construction of crushed stone reinforcing elements with a diameter of 800 mm. This technology will provide the necessary characteristics for weak foundation soils. The foundation on solid ground is the key to the reliability and durability of the entire complex of buildings.
GEOIZOL Project engineers completed a course (Moscow) ” Theoretical foundations and practical methods of laboratory definitions of input parameters of computational models of software systems based on the finite element method. PLAXIS software package”. The training included four sessions where specialists learned how to obtain the necessary soil parameters for various models of software systems, as well as how to correctly apply these parameters in the PLAXIS program. At the end of the seminars, GEOIZOL Project specialists answered the questions of the GeoInfo editorial board.
