The MEP Engineering Department works in tight collaboration with the design activities of the other firm Departments (Architecture and Construction, Roadways and Transportation) as well as autonomously for external projects. Over the last few years renown international architects have become privileged partners in this field (Massimiliano Fuksas, 5+1 AA, Odile Decq, Renzo Piano, etc.).
The Department is particularly appreciated for its innovative and creative talent, its ability to cooperate with great architects, not only as a support in translating their ideas, but sometimes as a creator of cues and stimuli for the development of their concepts.
Among others, we remind: the Rome Congress Center (the “cloud”), the Ferrari Product Development Center in Maranello (Modena), the Is Molas tourist and sport resort in Sardinia and the New Movie Theater in Venice Lido.
At present the most relevant on going project is the new tower seat of the Piedmont Regional Administration in Turin, whose preliminary assessment earned a rating of 3.4 according to the ITACA protocol (approx corresponding to the LEED Gold Rate).
The Department has also gained great experience in energy and environmental comfort sector.
Its most recent significant project is an energetically total selfsustaining tower, specifically studied for the United Arab Emirates and the GeS building of Ferrari S.p.A., a NZEB (Net Zero Energy Building) in Maranello (Modena).
