Open pit protection – Roxanich Heritage Wine Hotel and wine cellar
At the site of the old cooperative cellar, built in 1902, at the foothill of the Istrian town Motovun, design for the construction of Roxanich Heritage Wine Hotel and the 5-stage wine cellar was launched.
For the purpose of construction, geotechnical exploration and investigation works consisting of exploratory drilling, excavation of probing pit, engineering-geological terrain mapping, and laboratory testing were conducted. Based on conducted geotechnical exploration and investigation works, we made a geotechnical report which was the basis for main and detailed the open pit protection design.
The vertical cut of the open pit, 20,0 m in height, insured with the systematic installation of self-drilling anchors load capacity of 38 and 70 tons and shotcrete in two or three layers of 5 cm.
Considering the unfavorable geological terrain and a complex excavation geometry, the main and detailed design for the open pit protection was made in BIM technology.
