The beautiful 16th century apartment building in Mirandola, registered as historic place, was heavily damaged by the 2012 Emilia earthquake.

Numeria was appointed by the owners to design and manage the seismic retrofit and refurbishment. We overview all aspects of projects, from vulnerability assessment to design and work supervision. The approach followed by Numeria team allowed the handover of the keys of a fully refurbished apartment building one year ahead the allotted time.

The approach followed by Numeria team brought several benefits to clients. By doing a very detailed seismic vulnerability evaluation, Numeria assessed and identified the extent and severity of structural and cosmetic damage. Along with the assessment, the team developed innovative, cost-effective solutions for seismic upgrading. Use of steel fibers has been made for both in-plane and out-of-plane unreinforced masonry. General reconfiguration and refurbishment was also needed to bring the building up to modern standards.
