Studor recently helped STEAM architects to achieve a profile for a building that is in harmony with the adjacent sloping hillside landscape.
The €130m Monselice Hospital in Northern East Italy required integrity for the rooftops to be maintained and the design did not allow for any roof protrusions to interrupt the flow of the roofline.
The project’s MEP contractor, Gemmo SpA asked Studor to advise on the drainage system design.
Studor’s UK Technical Sales Director Daniel Rate commented, “Our solution was to cap as many stacks as possible with Studor Maxi-Vent Air Admittance Valve which fits discretely within the roof space. The Maxi-Vent protects the trap seals within the drainage system by allowing the intake of air so that each soil pipe can maintain the right level of pressure within the system. This is critical, especially in a hospital environment, ensuring there is no cross-contamination from the drainage system into the habitable space.”
“Furthermore, the Maxi-Vents eliminate the need for any roof penetrations thus reducing the amount of pipework required saving both time and money. So, not only is the integrity of the roof maintained, but heat loss was minimised and time was saved onsite.”
Over 100 Studor Maxi-Vents were installed in the 37,500m2 hospital, offering significant environmental benefits in reducing Monselice Hospital’s environmental footprint.
