A school is a place where children spend almost half of their day and that’s where the protection of their health is of primary importance. Therefore, a school building must be safe, environmentally friendly and comfortable. For these reasons applying Green building techniques to the construction of buildings for educational purposes, is the best solution. Wooden structure is safe, anti-seismic and above allmakes it possible to integrate renewable energy technologies easily. Our vast experience comprises of many completed school building projects, including those built, during post-earthquake reconstructions, starting from the earthquake event in Umbria-Marche region of Italy in 1997.
The experience of La Foca is also recognized on national level, mentioned in the UTET encyclopedia series WOOD Manual Techniques to design in Italy (l’Enciclopedia UTET collana Scienze Tecniche LEGNO Manuale per progettare in Italia) with its realization of the school of 3.000 sqm in Vinovo (Turin, Italy).
