In October 2016, the new F. Socciarelli primary school in Ancona (Italy) was officially opened. Thanks to an extremely efficient building process, the building was completed in less than 100 days, which was sooner than expected. The multi-storey building, which contains three floors above ground level, was entirely built using glued laminated (glulam) timber, with a "post and beam" type frame system. This construction method was used for its environmental sustainability, and because it enabled a shorter construction time. Resulting in a school building that is both safe and functional and has great aesthetics.
A Zero Energy School
A lot of attention was paid to making the building as energy efficient as possible. Stone wool insulation products from ROCKWOOL were used to ensure high standards of energy efficiency and optimal internal microclimate conditions. In addition, construction company Subissati installed controlled mechanical ventilation systems, low inertia radiant floor heating and cooling systems with heat pumps, and renewable energy systems. A totem in the school yard is used to constantly display real time data on the energy consumption of the new building.
