At the end of 2011 Eptisa was awarded a contract for auscultation the refurbishment of the Paseo de Gracia station, in Barcelona, by Administrator of Railway Infrastructures (ADIF) with a budget of € 257,920.6.

The refurbishment of the station will consist of the installation of escalators and lifts, the renovation of the hall, the extension of the platforms to facilitate the users' access and the improvement of the pavement, lighting and information systems.

Eptisa has just started the works of auscultation that consist of carrying out inspections in order to know the conditions of ten buildings and a hundred flats and businesses as well as common areas located at the intersection of Paseo de Gracia and Aragon streets.

It's also planned that Eptisa carries out an auscultation plan to have an exhaustive control during works execution. This plan will include conventional and automated surveying devices, and auscultation systems in the monitors and hall of the station, as well as in the adjoining buildings to guarantee the maximum security during the works in the station.

Moreover, Eptisa has successfully finalized a second project. The works were developed in the Ourense - Silleda section of the new High Speed Railway Line Ourense - Santiago de Compostela, where it has carried out both static and dynamic load tests in FFCC infrastructures such as viaducts 90 metres high.

Both projects are included in the Framework Agreement to carry out works in the stations managed by the Administrator of Railway Infrastructures (ADIF), which was awarded to Eptisa last year.

Thanks to this contract, Eptisa carries out engineering and architectural works in the areas of project management and works supervision in all regions of Spain, including draw up designs, auscultation and monitoring, between other.
