The company was founded in 2013 by a group of researchers, with extensive proessional experience, for providing consulting services and assistance to public and private companies that are faced with complex geotechnical and geological problems.

Prof. Paolo Croce
Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Paolo Croce was born in Napoli, Italy, in 1954. He graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of Napoli Federico II in 1979 and obtained the Master of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado in 1982. He is Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, Italy, where is currently teaching courses on soil mechanics and slope stability. He is a Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and of the Italian Geotechnical Society (Associazione Geotecnica Italiana – AGI). Has been Convenor of the European Work Group on Ground Improvement (EG14 – CEN/TC/250) and member of the European Committee on Execution of Special Geotechnical Works (CEN/TC 288). Has authored several papers in geotechnical journals and conferences, including a book on Jet Grouting together with Alessandro Flora and Giuseppe Modoni, published by Taylor and Francis in 2014. He has 30 years of professional experience in Europe and Middle East regarding design and consulting for earth and rockfill dams, viaduct foundations, tunnelling, landslides control, soil Improvement and recycling.

Giuseppe Modoni was born in Foggia, Italy, in 1968. He graduated in Civil Engineering at the University of Napoli, Federico II, in 1994. He completed a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering from the Consortium of the Universities of Rome and Napoli in 1999. He has been awarded with fellowships from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (2004) and the Silesian University of Technology in Poland (2006-2008). At present he is Associate Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (Italy), where he is currently teaching courses on soil mechanics and foundations and ground improvement. He is a Member of the Italian Geotechnical Society (Associazione Geotecnica Italiana – AGI), and has participated to the AGI Committee for preparing the Recommendation on Jet Grouting. His research activity spans from laboratory investigation and theoretical modelling of the stress strain response of coarse grained materials, design of jet grouting, interpretation and modelling of large scale geotechnical problems. He has authored several papers in geotechnical journals and conferences and is reviewer for prestigious international journals. He has published two books on Jet Grouting, one in Italian published by Hevelius (2005), the other in English published by Taylor and Francis (2014). He has about 20 years of geotechnical consultant experience in Italy and Europe.
