Energy saving, historical appeal, cutting-edge plant design, flexibility and BREEAM certification: these are the ingredients of the new REbuild 2015 Award “San Prospero”, the XIX-century milanese building redeveloped by Progetto CMR for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management.
The REbuild prize takes its name after the redevelopment and estate management‘s innovation convention, organized by Habitech and Riva del Garda Fieracongressi, borned to reward the best projects in the sustainable redevelopment field, valuing the quality of the building in terms of costs, consumptions, materials and comfort.
The REbuild prize’s fourth edition in the service sector was won for the second year in a row by Progetto CMR with “San Prospero”.
The project for the redevelopment of the building in San Prospero St. in Milan, 3000 sqm and five floors bulding, originally designed for residential purposes, gives to the interiors new functional qualities and performance level through the attention towards the energy efficiency and the flexibility of the space.
The features of the XIX-century milanese architecture, with marbles and mosaic glass windows, meet the comfort of the environments, designed with structural and plant cutting-edge solutions, awarded with the BREEAM Europe Commercial Offices 2009 certification.
On the exterior, a “thermal coat” was built on the internal side of the perimeter wall, improving the insulation and the soundproofing of the building.
“We are proud of this result” Marco Ferrario, Progetto CMR’s president, comments. “We want to thank Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management which gave us the opportunity to design a sustainable building and to put into effect our expertise”.
