MILAN | UTC Tower | 90m | 24 fl | Redevelop

Built in 1966, the UTC Tower - designed by architects Renato Bazzoni, Luigi Fratino, Vittorio Gandolfi, Aldo Putelli - is one of the old building in Porta Nuova district. The tower is the seat of the City's Office of Technical Services.









milanopanoramica.com

The existing project is made essentially of 3 elements: a 90m-high tower (24 floors), a long and low-rise building extending across the road and a connecting structure between the two buildings. The intent for the requalification includes building remediation, structural reinforcement, M&E renovation and the envelope substitution.

Faces Team has been involved for the facades engineering, with the intent to design a high performance façade to reach better level of energy insulation and internal thermal comfort. Façade performance has been also coordinated with the other Consultants to reach high level performance for structural, thermal, acoustic and fire behavior. The aim of the façade design was to maintain as much as possible the aesthetics of the original envelope and create a different concept for the façade of the new entrance element.

On the south elevation (both Tower and low-rise building) the existing façade has been moved outwards. In order to guarantee the optimal thermal, air and water barrier, the concrete columns have been insulated and covered with shaped GRC; to achieve the required energy class, also all the other exposed structures have been designed to be highly insulated.

No. Read the description in my first post to better understand the work they are going to do on this tower.

"Library of Trees", a 90,000 sqm park that represents a modern version of the botanic garden.
It was designed by Dutch designer Petra Blaisse and other architects.
Less or more, you are here...
