Parco giochi - Scuola dell’infanzia, Bagnolo Mella, Brescia, Italia - Moretti Modular Contractor

Scuola dell’Infanzia,
Bagnolo Mella, Brescia, Italy

Laminated wood is the absolute protagonist of the new kindergarten in Bagnolo Mella, built by Moretti Modular Contractor in A.T.I. with a pool of professionals who took care of the architectural, structural and plant engineering design. The job order, obtained through an integrated public contract award, is characterized by the care with which the entire intervention was conducted, which earned it LEED Platinum certification.

Surrounded by a large green area, also designed in the light of advanced psycho-pedagogical studies, it opens radially around a 300 m2 modular central core, which dialogues with a 500 m2 outdoor plaza thanks to a system of sliding window frames, thus making it possible to obtain a single large area to be used for common moments. Around it are developed the bodies of common services and eight independent classrooms, each oriented for the best natural sunlight, marked by a color and divided into several functional areas (play, work, rest) and equipped with services.

The front of the complex, which is on a single level except for the two bodies placed symmetrically at the extremes (gymnasium and janitor’s quarters) arranged on two floors, is marked by two load-bearing steel canopies with trapezoidal sheet metal roofing. The entire load-bearing structure is made of prefabricated sandwich laminated wood panels with excellent acoustic and energy performance and anti-seismic behavior. The perimeter panels are counterposed with double-sheet plasterboard to mask the systems. The windows and doors are designed to limit dispersion, thanks in part to the use of glass with high passive sound resistance, high thermal insulating capacity and excellent light shielding. The photovoltaic system, on the roof, can produce up to 80 Kw of electricity, while the artificial lighting is entirely LED. Water for the bathrooms, sprinkler system and irrigation is obtained from the rainwater storage tank. The intervention is completed with perimeter fencing, the construction of two play areas in the park, and the renewal of the subfloors and finishing carpet of the pedestrian and bicycle path in front of the entrance.

"Moretti Modular Contractor is a company with good technical skills: it knows how to develop projects with mixed materials and can find solutions to even the most complex design requirements."


Exclusive use of glulam sandwich panels with high acoustic and energy performance.

The choice of the prefabricated Moretti Modular Contractor allowed for very short construction times, especially considering the design and geometric complexity of the building and the simultaneous progress of the parts under construction: four and a half months from the installation of the first pillar to that of the last roof tile.
