Inspection and diagnosis works of the concrete structure of Verallia’s Silos in Telde, Gran Canaria, has been recently entrusted to FHECOR Ingenieros Consultores. The building stores different materials needed for the whole manufacture process of glass packaging for food and beverages.

The purpose of these works is the estimation of the lifespan of the structure and the strategies required to maximize it.
