Based on the fundamental concept that it is necessary “to know in order to preserve and to preserve in order to know”, diagnostics can be defined as a set of manual, visual, historical, instrumental and laboratory procedures which allow expressing a judgment, and therefore an overall analytical diagnosis on the case in point, through information “layering”.

The different layers of information required to achieve the appropriate level of knowledge in order to carry out a recovery and restoration project with an anti-seismic protection, can be organised over several stages, considering all the types of tests to be performed as useful, starting from the largest number of non-invasive investigations to a series of non-destructive tests and to a limited number of direct tests with sampling and laboratory analysis.
SOING offers services dedicated to characterising all structural and non-structural parts of historical and monumental buildings, residential and strategic public buildings and large civil works. Thanks to their geological and structural expertise, the GeoSOING and ArchiSOING departments often work together to perform a complete study of the ground and foundations, right up to the roof, supplying customers with a complete and coordinated study between the geological and the architectural and structural aspects.
Our APPROACH TO KNOWLEDGE is consistent with M. decree 09-02-2011 “Assessment and reduction of the seismic risk of our cultural heritage” and of course with the Technical Construction Standards according to M. Decree 14/01/2008″.
