Water Supply And Sewerage And Treatment Plants
Eurovia has solid experience with projects in the water sector and the environmental sector. In the water sector, the Eurovia mainly focuses on projects for rehabilitation, reconstruction and construction of new water supply and sewerage networks and facilities, which in turn improves people’s lives.
In recent years, “Eurovia” has expanded its activity in the environmental sector and focuses on implementation of projects in the area of waste management and soil protection – installations for disposal of household waste, construction of regional landfills, construction of pre-treatment facilities, including for composting, sorting and separation of waste. Eurovia has the capacity to work on climate change adaptation, risk prevention and risk management.
Eurovia participates in the construction of sites under Operational Programme “Environment” and Operational Programme “Regional Development”.
Eurovia designs and constructs sports and recreation facilities – multifuncional halls, sports complexes, stadiums, playfields, parks, kindergartens and children’s playgrounds.
Hydroelectric Power Plants
Eurovia has constructed hydroelectric power plants including associated structures such as dams, barrages, caverns, tunnels, spillways, switchyards. The building of structures used for the exploitation of hydropower is deemed one of the most demanding structural engineering tasks. This applies to planning and design as well as to construction itself. The Eurovia can boast tremendous technological and operative know-how in this field.

Bridge Construction Planning
Bridge construction tends to involve huge projects that encompass the utilization of skills related to several engineering disciplines including geology, civil, electrical, mechanical, and computer sciences. Therefore, integrating the efforts of all involved must be meticulous.
The initial plans are prepared regarding the project, including the characteristics of the desired bridge, the site details, and the requirement of resources. The bridge design will be determined by the type of bridge being constructed.
The main types of the bridges are beam, arch, truss, cantilever, and suspension. The beam bridge is one of the popular types. Bridges can also be categorized by the planned use, like road and rail bridge, pedestrian pavement, material to be used like steel or concrete, and fixed or moveable. Moveable bridges are constructed when the ship height may be more than the bridge floor. In such situations, the road has the capability to be lifted or pivoted, to permit marine traffic movement under it.
Construction of the foundations is the first step toward building a bridge. This process involves detailed geotechnical investigations of the bridge site. The type of bridge foundation has to be selected, such as the well foundation, pile foundation, and the opened foundation. Each foundation is suitable for specific soil strata, and the desired bridge characteristics.
The soil characteristics will determine the load bearing capacity, and other important parameters. The superstructure is basically designed in accordance with the technical requirements, aesthetic reasons, and the construction methodology.
Excavation required for the foundations may need to be executed to sizeable depths, involving hard ground, before the solid rocks are reached. Engineering feats will be involved to avoid water, and prevent collapse of the diggings. Tunnels specifically may be subjected to sudden failures.
Bridge Construction Equipment
Heavy equipment will be used extensively during the bridge construction including bulldozers, excavators, asphalt mixers, formworks, and fabrication equipment. The construction and other equipment needs to be identified thoroughly, according to their capability and other desired functions. The foundation and the superstructure design will need to be considered.
This expensive equipment should not remain idle, and must be used cautiously to obtain optimum advantage.
