PROJECT DESCRIPTION

"Umberto Forti" Headquarters, a company active in the development of high growth potential real estate areas, located between Pisa and Livorno, houses the offices and the business center of the corporate group.
The energy performance of the building is a direct consequence of a careful design to the bioclimatic aspects; the study of opaque and transparent surfaces is studied according to their specific orientation.
Its triple volume opens into a large ventilated facade. The south-east façade is characterized by large continuous glazing, suitably shielded by linear sunblinds with variable pitch. Design choices that are reflected inside in work environments with open views of the greenery and the mountains. Green is also present inside the building with hanging gardens and terraces covered with natural materials, contributing to the regulation of the microclimate. Finally, the south facade has been entirely covered with photovoltaic panels.
In the building there are no methane gas systems. The photovoltaic production covers most of the consumption (> 80%) for winter and summer conditioning and lighting. Thanks to the development of specific architectural solutions, the enclosure becomes the first technological system of the building. Parallel to the envelope, a state-of-the-art plant engineering system has been developed, which uses, among other things, LED lighting systems, a geothermal system for indoor climate control and heat recovery systems. The mix of renewable sources and strategies to contain consumption make this complex a reference point for sustainable building in the whole of the Tuscany Region.
In 2018, it received the LEED GOLD CERTIFICATION rating for its high standards of energy saving and attention to the environment.
