FERRERIE NORD INVESTS ON FORTE GEMONESE SITE AND BUILDS A NEW TERTIARY BUILDING TO SUPPORT PRODUCTION
Zona Industriale Rivoli, Osoppo (UD)
10.2016 – 03.2017
This new Ferriere Nord building is studied for housing offices and production support areas. It is built on two levels, the ground floor office space, designed with a high spatial flexibility to meet the demand for possible future modification of the layout and the first floor is dedicated to worker’s dressing rooms and corporate canteen, which serves about 165 employees.
The design is thought with pre-fabricated panels of light concrete which contrasts the dark color of the painted metal strip, that acts as buffering to external stairwells, while a continuous band windows. To ensure compliance with energy sustainability criteria and to minimize management costs it was decided to take advantage of the existing district heating network as a whole. Cooling involves the installation of a multiple-stage, air-cooled compressor heat pump unit with cooling air control.
