Drinking water reservoir with local flair

The new drinking water reservoir and treatment plant in Arzo/Mendrisio (Ticino) comprises a reservoir, a cast-in-place concrete dam, two storage reservoirs and a dry chamber with water treatment facilities. Constructed in local Arzo marble, the buildings blend harmoniously into the landscape.

The reservoirs are watertight and have appropriately sized and ventilated access doors. In addition, two separate pipelines were installed: one for conveying untreated water and one for distribution. A switch box, cable shafts and drains were also part of the project. The reinforced concrete project for the tanks was created using Revit 3D software.

Our tasks

HOLINGER was responsible for the design and construction management of the civil works. This included the construction of the reinforced concrete slab foundations for the reservoir and tanks as well as the laying of a total of 750 m of pipelines to the tanks.
