The studio

What is ABM GEO

The professional experience gained by the partners of ABMGeo since 1997 through consulting activities in various fields has allowed us to establish a team of experts that covers numerous activities in the geological, environmental and energy sectors, providing a single point of reference for various issues.

The Geological Studio was founded by Dr. Geol. Luca Arieni as a Sole Proprietorship in Varese in 2001 and initially carried out its activity as a consultant and collaborator with other well-established Associated Studios in the province, to which studies and reports in the geological, hydrogeological, geotechnical and geophysical fields were gradually added.

In 2003, following the increase in activities and with the intention of offering an ever wider possibility of interaction to its clients, together with the relocation of the headquarters to Castiglione Olona (VA), the aggregation took place in the form of a Geological Studio Associato between the partners Dr. Geol. Luca Arieni, Dr. Geol. Mauro Bolognese and Dr. Geol. Alberto Mazzucchelli.

The new corporate form allowed us to expand our field of action and to increasingly deal with larger studies and projects in the field of Territorial Planning, Hydrogeological Risk Prevention, Civil Protection, Hydrogeological Studies and Planning.

At the same time, the Studio started to provide its Clients with specialized services in the field of geophysical, hydrogeological and geognostic surveys, both on site and in the laboratory, in the form of our collaboration contracts with several support companies with many years of experience.

In 2006, the company moved to its operational headquarters in Morazzone (VA), Via Europa 33, where it also houses the warehouse and/or storage of the Studio’s own scientific equipment together with its offices.

In 2019, ABMGeo became ABMGeo s.r.l. with the ownership of the partners Dr. Geol. Luca Arieni and Dr. Geol. Marco Canavesi.

In 2023, the studio expanded and moved to its new headquarters at Via XXVI Agosto n. 2-6, still in Morazzone (VA).
