Telecom Italia Sparkle office renovation

Telecom Italia spa




Renovation of the Telecom Italia SPA building complex for office use, covering an area of approximately 50,000 square meters.


The complex has been set in a large green area, which now has a large portion of English lawn in good condition. And it is characterized by a continuous main distribution pathway that allows one to traverse the different buildings that make up the complex the latter is based on a rigorous modular grid that goes to define both outdoor and indoor spaces.

The structure also mirrors the basic module and is largely built using traditional construction techniques: the curtain walls and main partitions are made of box masonry with an air space that also houses piping where necessary.

Of particular note is the cladding of the facades of the various building blocks characterized a cladding of prefabricated concrete elements with a U-shaped section colored in paste with a mixture composed of gray cement with Verona red powder, basalt grit and brick fragments that on some heads to large glazed walls, but without following a criterion related to radiation considerations.

The concrete element infill isalternated where needed with a metal sheet infill with a bronze finish, used with flat or corrugated slabs, but also with vertical slat shielding elements. The new configuration of the Telecom complex in Acilia for the 10 City project will see it take on the configuration of a “Campus Green.”

Building space planning is based on a criterion of maximum clarity and simplicity of functional distribution. Two companies of the Telecom Italia group are located in the complex: Telecom Italia IT and Telecom Italia Sparkle, and a review of the relative areas committed by the standards provided allowed the two companies to be located through an allocation that preserves the integrity of the individual buildings in the complex and allows them to be assigned contiguous and clearly identified buildings. Telecom Italia IT is allocated buildings A, B, H and I, while Telecom Italia Sparkle is allocated buildings D and E, leaving the remaining buildings C, F and G fully available for collective and shared functions between the two companies.

Building C, the entrance building,becomes barycentric in the new distribution and allows direct access to the spaces dedicated to the two societies, located at its two ends. The upper floor houses work spaces of the two companies directly accessible from the spaces dedicated to them on the ground floor. Inside, the design followed the criteria of smartworking by generating a space with a continuous path, a true internal street that winds through the entire “building-city,” skirting the workstations of Telecom IT and Telecom Sparkle companies and widening into the “squares” that house floor and headquarters services.

On the specific condition of individual buildings, with their related finishes and state of preservation, a thorough screening was performed with input of the related information into the BIM coordination model, produced with the logic of Building Assembly Modeling, which simulates the physical structure, and the actual material composition, allowing continuous control and alignment between the thermal simulations and the building geometry.

To this end, the phases characterizing the executive project were also managed through “comparative modeling” operations that involved an exchange of data, and verification of the results produced on the 3D BIM model and the thermophysical model of the blocks that make up the entire complex.

– “Gallery” – from the beginning of the descent from the side of the “pier” to the entrance of the ramp to the exit from the port area;

– “Truck Village”-this area includes both the roadway between the tunnel exit and the security checkpoint to the Stagnoni parking lot and the parking lot called Truck Village;

– “Exit” – exit area for heavy vehicles from the port area, from the overpass over the entrance to the Truck Village parking lot to the entrance;

– “Stagnoni”-this area includes: the Stagnoni parking lot (both the large part abutting the highway exit and the smaller part abutting the highway viaduct), the two parking lots under the viaduct, and the access control area.

In addition to the road system and parking lots, the survey included the external parts of the buildings in the area (the prefabricated modules in the parking lots and under the highway viaduct, the office buildings at the entrance and exit, and the building in the Truck Village parking lot) for “closed volume” modeling of them.
