The ongoing urbanization entails high levels of disorder and deregulation and since the measures traditionally implemented cannot meet the new request for services, TELMA Lab -core of Mobility2o consortium- has set up a working group named “A new workplace: the smart building” to analyse the connections and interferences between meta-changes of production activities and urban environment. And to find new solutions.
The five thematic areas targeted by the Laboratory (Transports, Energy, Logistics, Mobility, Environment) have been chosen because closely interconnected and interdependent.
The mutual impact between them no longer allows a separate analysis of the reality: therefore, it is essential a constant communication and a continuous co-operation between operators and users.
TELMA Lab aims at a building with a high technological profile and high energy performance, for a greater connectivity and interaction, as explain Livia Comes, architect and coordinator at TELMA Lab of the team project “A new workplace: the smart building”.
A building which opens up to the city through occupational and cultural activities; a great chance of urban regenaration , a step closer to the reduction of land use and sustainability.
Sustainability means human-sized and environmentally friendly, so smart working fits into this framework perfectly, for it steems from the concept that flexibility, wellbeing and possibility to have individual working spaces can generate meaningful productivity.
But the change from desk based working to activity based working creates some problems and need an important cultural ad practical work.
Luca Masciola, Scientific Director at TELMA Lab and General Manager at Errebian SpA, synthesizes the main changes.
The changes taking place are:
The ways of working.
The use of the working environment.
Smaller work spaces.
A new demand for goods and services.
Social and environmental impact.
