Abstract

The preservation and refurbishment of the industrial heritage plays a fundamental aspect in terms of improving the energy performance, but also in terms of comfort and healthiness of working environments, that often prove to be very lacking in this regard. In this framework, the paper describes and analyses the reclamation and redevelopment of the roofs of one of the largest productive-industrial sites in the town of Canale (Italy). The case study is made up of a series of adjacent buildings, many of which built in different periods, to a total area of over 20,000 sq. m. This particular situation, that is the simultaneous presence of many different types of roofing, most of which characterized by the presence of elements containing asbestos, resulted in a considerable level of deepening and detail in the design phase. Moreover, the need to maintain the production lines of the plant without any operational interruption during the refurbishment phases has led to a strong engineering and optimization of the planned operations, so as to minimize their impact on the production activities. The paper, after describing the production site initial situation, analyses and deepens in detail the design and the construction site optimization issues, as well as the technological and operational solutions adopted both to improve the indoor environmental conditions (thermal and lightning comfort) and to minimize the interference with the production activities, highlighting how such solutions could be used as guidelines in case of similar refurbishment interventions.
