Following the seismic wave that hit Emilia Romagna in 2012, a special technical structure was created at the Offices of the Region in Bologna – designated to oversee the organization of the reconstruction of the damaged public buildings and the completion of works for the management of displaced persons.
In both situations, New House participated in tenders called for urgent reasons and with very limited manufacturing periods. The first of the New House awards was aimed at the reconstruction of the damaged school complexes in the province of Modena to allow the school year to continue. The award saw the construction of prefabricated schools, even on two floors, for a total of about 3000 square meters.
The modular prefabricated buildings Series M1 that have been used have been developed in accordance with the customizations and configurations required by the customer. The prefabricated mono-blocks were equipped with insulated walls in 80 mm thick mineral wool, with false ceilings in fiberglass squares, porcelain stoneware flooring, air conditioning and electrical systems.
The premises included classrooms, teacher rooms, toilet facilities, classrooms for school staff, and large dining rooms. The two-floor complex was equipped with electrical systems and cooling/heating systems distributed all over the place. The environment has been widely appreciated by the customer who has repeatedly underlined the functionality of the rooms and the speed of installation, and it was promptly started to minimize the suspension of the lessons for the emergency caused by the earthquake.
