The Isotec Parete facade system produced by Brianza Plastica can accomodate any type of cladding.
A new complex and articulated building offers additional connective and shared spaces to a school complex in Chiari and completes the general renovation of the existing complex. The intervention of the municipal technical office, in collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano, has provided for the energy efficiency of the old buildings, plus the construction of 22 new classrooms and laboratories, a civic centre, a 400-seat auditorium and a large gymnasium. The intervention is also part of a wider urban qualification work, which also includes a disused area where the old Palasport was located.
A finished porcelain stoneware ventilated facade system is the envelope that characterises the new building and much of the existing structure. The designers of the school centre chose Isotec Parete by Brianza Plastica, a solution that combines excellent energy performance with elegant and modern aesthetics.
Thanks to the quality of the building envelope system, the new school complex is energy self-sufficient and has been classified as an NZEB building, both according to national and regional standards. It is one of the first renovations to enter this category.
Isotec Parete is a structural thermal insulation system consisting of polyurethane foam panels covered with aluminium foil that makes them waterproof. The system produced by Brianza Plastica has a slotted steel batten that can support any type of facade cladding, creating a ventilation chamber between the insulation and the external finish. Installation is completely dry and ensures quick assembly, maximum cleanliness of the building site and workability in all climatic conditions.
Porcelain stoneware slabs, 30x60 cm in size, are anchored to the tiles with steel clamps painted in the same colour as the material to make them practically invisible. Given the fairly contained size of the cladding, it was decided to install Isotec Parete with the long side horizontally, so as to reduce the number of anchors of the panels to the structure and the clamps for fixing the finish, thus reducing costs.
