  • (1888PressRelease) March 03, 2011 - Officially reborn in the heart of Milano the new Ferrante Aporti Palace, former seat of the Italian Post Office, designed back in the thirties by Ulisse Stacchini, the same architect of the Central Station.

    Maker of this project, "Business Port" (a joint venture between MHREC and TIAA - CREF) joined by Hines as developer and advisor. Six office floors, two underground parking levels, ground floor disposed into a large square with bars, services, conference room and an inside garden structured by steel and glass roof.
    The entire complex was cleared of any superstructure done over the years in order to bring it back to its original splendor.

    The project, coordinated by architects as Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel of ACPV and with the help of the architect Claudio Ravioli, provided a high quality standard in the structure and above all for what concerns the plant design. In order to increase the energy efficiency of the building and reset CO2 and pollutants emissions in the heart of the city, Engineer Marazzi by Planning Engineering has adopted four multi-purpose heat pump Integra units, ERACS-Q by Climaveneta.

    This solution is of great help in Milan which is already facing problems of pollution and particulates.

    The air to water units, 650kW each, have been installed on the roof of the lobby entrance on Ferrante Aporti Street side, and are sheltered by a backdrop of wire mesh, turning out to be totally invisible from the outside. Even low noise level make Climaveneta units absolutely fair and appropriate to this kind of building renovation. The 4 multi-purpose units fulfill the needs of air conditioning, heating and domestic hot water for the whole building throughout the year, with no impact on the surrounding environment.

    One advantage that goes along with the reduction of running costs due to heating or cooling by approximately 40% compared to traditional systems based on central cooling and boiler.

    Both renovations and new building constructions in a beating heart city like Milan should follow this double track, upgrading buildings but also improving thier plant design. A lively city that is seeing a real transformation of its skyline in view of Expo 2015, should get together in an air quality improvement and rational use of energy. This is already true in the case of Ferranti Aporti, where the technology developed by Climaveneta allowed to combine comfort throughout the year and respect for the environment, and was able to meet the demands of a demanding, but conscious and forward-looking customer such as Hines Italy.
