The project in Inveruno (MI) foresees the construction of a new, environmentally innovative school complex, as the pre-design options aim to potentially reach the highest level (PLATINUM) of the current USGBC LEED v4 sustainability protocol.
The intervention area of approximately 18 900 square meters is located in a central area of Inveruno and was entirely occupied by the production buildings of the former Belloli oil factory.
The lot under intervention will house three separate buildings:
- the first building (A), located in the northern part of the site, will house the secondary school. The building consists of a two-storey horseshoe-shaped structure, which houses the teaching and special activities sections (A1), the refectory structure (A2) and the sports hall (A3). The latter will include a basement which, in addition to the changing rooms, will be composed of rooms intended to serve as technological spaces for the whole lot;
- the second building (B), located on the south side of the site, will house an elementary school. Morphologically, it mirrors building A in its entirety, but the gym (B3) will not have a basement;
- the third building (C), located at the end of the garden square, consists of a two-storey building above ground level, used as an auditorium with 220 seats.
Finally, within the area, there are plans to create a park open to the public, where street furniture such as benches and fountains will be placed. The school area will be serviced by a total of 54 parking spaces, including 4 disabled parking spaces, all distributed along the perimeter streets of the site.
The design will be carried out entirely using BIM technology in the Revit environment, with a team of designers specializing in architecture, structures and installations. The fundamental objective of BIM is to define a global representation of the building throughout its entire life cycle by including dimensional, qualitative and quantitative data within the model or its individual elements.
