Nuovo Flaminia, Brescia, Italia - Moretti Modular Contractor

Nuovo Flaminia,
Brescia, Italy

The Nuovo Flaminia shopping centre and adjacent large public park constitutes a redevelopment of the area of the former Magazzini Generali in Brescia, disused for more than 15 years. General contractor of the intervention was CMB Cooperativa Muratori e Braccianti di Carpi. From an architectural point of view, the building is characterised by a southern entrance with large windows, while on the two sides facing Via Dalmazia and Via Salgari it has façades made of screen-printed wooden strips reproducing images of trees that dialogue with the surrounding green space and park. The building is constructed with a prefabricated reinforced concrete and glulam structure, made and assembled by Moretti Modular Contractor, which creates a complex design, organised on 2 diagonal volumes that intersect each other.

The ground floor of the building is occupied by a 6,200m2 specialised hypermarket and another 3,600 m2 dedicated to three medium-sized shopping areas; also on the ground floor is a 1,450 m2 walk-through shopping gallery overlooked by a dozen small shops, while the first floor houses a 1,000 m2 food court, offices and other management activities, as well as a large terrace (open to the public) that directly overlooks the park.

For the Nuova Flaminia construction site in Brescia, Moretti Modular Contractor, in collaboration with L2 Progetti Srl, was responsible for the structural design of the entire project. The use of the BIM model allowed Moretti Modular Contractor to better coordinate with the other designers and suppliers, enabling it to preventively analyse and solve aspects that could present criticalities. It also offered important support to the site’s construction management, providing them with the large amount of information related to each of the different components.

The structural design was developed by Moretti Modular Contractor with the Building Information Management system, using its prefabricated elements.

The multiple parties involved in the project were able to take advantage of the benefits of a shared design platform (BIM) developed by Moretti Modular Contractor.
