Detalhes

The building Biomed III want a solution and a qualified urban structural solution, and constructive integration of infrastructure and systems qualified for the sustainability and economics.

The floors of laboratories are organized according to the four quadrants of the circulation system anddefine infrastructure. There are four areas of equal size that correspond to the two laboratoriestheir outbuildings, a third between the last two home spaces and common supportlatter corresponds to areas of study laboratories as well as the circulation spaces and general support.

The deployment of a single floor facilitates Vivarium issues circuits, avoiding duplication of vertical access ladders, lifts and montacargas, and make the solution as a whole more flexible in the face of future programmatic changes. We chose to build a floor under the roof of continuing technical -1 floor able to accommodate all infrastructure associated with the operation of the vivarium, but also of the Technology Platforms.

The structure is proposed, define (and therefore only affects) the design of large ships, circuits andbasic infrastructure, allowing a kind of flexibility based on the ability of redesigning and changing thepartitioning with a minimum of structural constraints. The solution also allows the level of construction and structural optimization of a substantial reduction resulting from excavation areas closer to the original topography, with no place to build floors completely buried, with consequent advantages in terms of economy of the construction and greater sustainability of the associated mechanical solutions to air quality.

This project combines the key elements in order to find sustainability and energy efficiency, energy conservation, low environmental impact and low emission of pollutants, with the ambition and responsibility so that it will construct a building environmentally exemplary.
