Trevi Completes the Foundations of the New Santa Giulia Arena in Milan on Schedule
Trevi has successfully and on schedule completed all the foundation works for the new Santa Giulia Arena multi-purpose sports hall which will host the men's ice hockey competitions for the 2026 Winter Olympics in Milan and Cortina, in Italy.
Trevi was selected by CTS Eventim, the German company and international leader in ticketing and live event organization, for its “recognized experience of over 65 years in the foundations, professionalism, and organizational skills”.
Trevi's main work involved constructing 883 piles using CFA technology, 340 of which have a diameter of 1,000 mm and the remaining 543 a diameter of 1,200 mm. The area of the new arena has soils consisting of sand and gravel with layers of silt and peat; the work surface was about 1 m above the water table. However, this did not prevent the company from completing all the foundation works within the timeframe set by Arup, maintaining high standards of quality, safety and sustainability.
Great attention was paid to sustainability in the operations. At the Santa Giulia site, 100% of the excavated material produced by the excavation works was recovered, thus becoming a product used for road construction and civil work fillings. This reuse was possible after 2 specialized analysis laboratories verified the absence of pollutants in the waste materials. The entire process made it possible to minimize, if not completely eliminate, landfill disposal.
Even the equipment used by Trevi for excavation activities, manufactured by the Soilmec Division of the Trevi Group and part of the Blue-tech line, has been designed to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and contain noise pollution. It is no coincidence that this line of rigs is in great demand in the soil engineering market.
The new 2026 Milan-Cortina Olympics Arena in Santa Giulia was designed by British architect David Chipperfield and Arup, one of the world's leading engineering and design firms.
