PROJECT REPORT: INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS

station. A variety of other local plants were used near retaining walls, and agaves were placed to prevent access at certain points. The colour and scent of the plants also influenced the placement, with the practice aiming for a “chromatic effect that changes with the different seasons of the year.” Pre-existing ‘downy’ oaks were retained in place.


Construction


It was important to the client Terna that the construction programme was “contained,” explains Frigerio, as well as the cost. Being on an island added an element of complication to the process, with all materials and supplies having to arrive by sea or air. “This influenced various construction solutions, orienting the choices towards prefabrication,” Frigerio says. “This also had to have maximum dimensions to simplify its transport.”


As well as being influenced by practicality, the practice were heavily guided on material choice by sustainability, with the UN’s sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in mind. “Buildings’ sustainability is essential if we want to achieve the SDGs promoted by the UN,” explains Frigerio, continuing: “In this project that has set the parameter for the choice of materials and construction technologies.”


Despite the complicated nature of the construction, the practice – who remained heavily involved throughout the build phase – say they faced no delays or unexpected problems. The only setback came very early on in the project when the discovery of some archaeological objects from the Roman era meant the layout of the entire site had to be redesigned, causing some delays to the programme.


Overall Frigerio is thrilled with how the project has been received by the public. When asked what the response has been, he says: “I would say it has been excellent, in general; it has received many appreciative comments.” There is one anecdote in particular which sticks out in his mind. “The complex is often mistaken for a resort, meaning we have managed to give an industrial plant an architectural dignity,” he explains. “Target reached!” 
