Created by EuroMilano, UpTown is a developing district based on the concept of Wellbeing City with zero-emission and domotics buildings. BIMON was the signatory company for the MEP design of the R6 residential subdivision. The design of the electrical and mechanical systems was developed entirely in BIM, and the model was subsequently implemented throughout the construction phase.
UpTown was created with the idea of improving people’s quality of life by offering them a healthy and sustainable housing model. The new residential complex within Italy’s only wellness district consists of four buildings with an internal green heart of 3,000 square meters.
In the northwest quadrant of Milan, thanks to the synergistic development and proximity of MIND and UpTown, a new urban centrality is rising, which will be further characterized by lively functions and services thanks to the new Feel UpTown. The new complex-designed by architecture firm Labics and engineering firm SIO Engineering-will consist of four buildings arranged around a large green courtyard, which will offer a reserved space of three thousand square meters, designed by landscape designer Valerio Cozzi. It will thus add to the 30 hectares of green space in UpTown Park, with which it is connected by wide stairways open to public passage.
The design of the indoor and outdoor spaces ensures versatility of environments and state-of-the-art technical solutions in protecting the safety and health of the inhabitants.
BIMON was responsible for the development of the executive design of the electrical, special, and mechanical systems.
During the design, software was used to develop a BIM model based on criteria important to the development of the infrastructure design. This resulted in accurate 3D models enhanced by BIM datasets; 2D drawings derived from BIM; and renderings of the 3D and 2D models.
Integration of all models into one aggregate model for interference management.
From the BIM model, all the technical drawings of the final design and, subsequently, the executive design necessary for the construction of the work were extrapolated.
