- Design of headquarters for Archimede Solar Energy.
- Innovative and energy efficient project with a class A certification.
- A new benchmark in the field of low-energy and low-carbon buildings.
Archimede Solar Energy Spa is part of the Angelantoni group and operates in the renewable energy sector.
The design of its new headquarters, commissioned in 2009, is part of an innovative environment and at the forefront of sustainability and energy efficiency. Arup has developed this innovative project with the aim of establishing a benchmark in the field of low-energy and low-carbon buildings.
The building, under construction within the energy hub in Massa Martana Stazione (PG), will have three floors above ground for a total area of about 3500m2 for residential areas, offices and public spaces.
Energy efficient building
Through a multidisciplinary approach, numerical models and simulations the building has obtained class A certification in energy efficiency and is close to being carbon neutral.
An overall reduction of thermal energy demand by about 50% during the summer and about 80% during winter is estimated. The consumption of primary energy heat and power has been reduced respectively by 60% and 40%.
Arup developed the design of structures and facilities, covering also the specialised aspects such as geotechnical studies and façades. Arup has also the role of construction management of operational systems and structures.
