Details of major projects undertaken in any given area can be viewed by browsing though the specific division which covers that particular field.
Ammico works in fields focused around geotechnical and marine engineering. Thus its earthworks capability complements its foundation engineering division when Ammico executes a project involving shoring, piling, excavation and dewatering as one enabling works package. Similarly, Ammico’s foundation engineering and ground improvement capabilities may be called upon to assist in various marine works projects. In the same vein, Ammico can draw upon the resources of its earthworks division when executing shore protection, breakwater and revetment works.
Thus the various divisions complement each other while the company retains focus and a sharp cutting edge in what it knows and does best.
