Palazzo Ferrazzi - Brescia, Brescia, Italy
Palazzo Ferrazzi - Brescia
The beautiful and historical palace, graced with exquisite frescos, is situated in Brescia (Lombardia) a Northern Italy city dating back to the Roman times, known as the "Lioness of Italy", and internationally famous as it is the starting and ending point of the historical car race "Millemiglia".
In this project the architectural constraints were fundamental in choosing an underfloor heating and cooling solution.
Here are the main characteristics of the building:
- very tick walls (>80 cm)
- no thermal insulation
- high thermal mass
- high thermal inertia
The particular nature of the building that was to be used as office space required an installation with very reduced inertia, highly performing and extremely comfortable.
Uponor installed the low tickness underfloor panel Minitec, Uponor dehumidifiers, and ZRS-K controls.
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control in the new landmark Adlershof Science and Technology Centre.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.
First radiant ceiling cooling renovation project in tropical climate – Singapore
La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
