"Green Park" Residential home

Mantua - Italy

Efficient use of our LegGO-GROUND and LegGO-WALL products

 

A fantastic result: in barely 12 months, a state-of-the-art structure was built, cutting-edge both in terms of the technology employed and the energy and environmental efficiency. The new RSA residential home in Mantua (Italy), opened on 22 December 2018, is split over 3 floors, and extends 14,000 m² of built area and can take 240 beds.

This new residential care and nursing home, nestled in the verdant setting of the "Green Park" Health Park in the beautiful town of Mantua, is a category A4 building, with nearly zero energy consumption and efficient from a seismic, acoustic and thermal perspective. "The project set out to create an efficient building right from the outset", explained Davide Nicchio, the architect, "and, once the architectural project was developed, an inventive building process was essential".

This approach led to a project that sets itself apart due to its everyday comfort, energy efficiency, security, speed of execution, optimisation of resources and low environmental impact.

13,000 square metres of LegGO-FLOOR and 4,000 square metres of LegGO-WALL were used for this building.
