Geology and Environment
Geology, geological report, geologist are increasingly recurrent terms and increasingly used in building practice and even beyond. The knowledge of what surrounds us is essential to understanding and better integrating into the surrounding environment with what we ask or would ask to achieve.
The geologist attempts to answer the question "what lies beneath" (where 'beneath' obviously means the underground), to know what you can expect from that level site or that side.
The recent seismic events (earthquakes of 20th and 29th May 2012) that affected Emilia Romagna have showed a huge deficit of knowledge and answers for those who have built.
For this reason, the geological report is always important: the geologist must be able to tell what kind of problems there may be in a site, what can be expected from that plot, how can you defend or which strategies can be adopted to mitigate the potential risks, integrating and relating with all the participants that form a project.
