Dino Compagni school in Florence
The project concerns the construction of the new secondary school “Dino Compagni” in Florence, through the demolition, reconstruction and expansion of the existing buildings.
The campus consists of a three-floor complex, with an approximated covered area of more than 4.000 sqm, and features 6 blocks divided from a seismic and a structural point of view: two buildings for the classrooms, the central volume with the didactic offices, a library, an auditorium and a gymnasium. All around the complex there is a wide open area, with slopes and different levels, which required the project of retaining walls, ramps and stairs. The structure is made with reinforced concrete, with cast-in-place columns and beams, REP beams and prefab two-way (CUBE) and one-way (PLASTBAU) slabs, realised with insulating formwork and lightening elements in EPS.
