At the construction and housing fair, emphasis was given to the advantages offered by gabions and geosynthetics
Promoted by the Costa Rican Chamber of Construction, the Expo Construcción y Vivienda took place from February 15 to 19, in Santo Antonio de Belén, Costa Rica. Maccaferri Latin America focused on the advantages of using gabions and geosynthetics in construction.
Greatly acknowledged in Latin America, this Expo unites under the same roof renowned engineers, architects, designers, developers, builders, work contractors and subcontractors with proven expertise on specifications, selection and application of materials. The list is complemented by the participation of companies offering finishing materials and by wholesale suppliers.
Maccaferri de Centroamérica’s team were keen to meet visitors during the fair and to explain the benefits offered by the company’s gabions , other steel wire mesh systems and geosynthetics. In civil construction, gabions are used to create permeable and flexible structures, such as retaining walls, channel linings, hydraulic and erosion control structures. Geosynthetics, in turn, are used for a vast range of geotechnical solutions including soil reinforcement where our geogrids, with their high strength with low deformation characteristics, add value to projects.
