The project is part of a wider project for the conservative rehousing of the former “Silvio Pellico” boarding school, a municipal building that has been given free of charge to the “PAT” (Provincia Autonoma Trento) so that the historic part can be used as a School of Advanced Medical Education, while the new part is being extended to provide support spaces for the nearby primary and secondary school in Ala, Trento.
The conservative rehabilitation works of the former Silvio Pellico municipal boarding school for the construction of the new primary school include:
- modifications and restoration of valuable elements found, as indicated by the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage;
- upgrade the lighting system to improve energy efficiency;
- upgrading the air conditioning system;
- partial modification of the structural elements of the extension volume, at the time designed in steel and now in wood and concrete;
- raising the two technical rooms on the roof by 10 cm to provide sufficient space for the air conditioning units present.
