The project is a gym designed for rhythmic gymnastics activities. It’s located in the municipality of Fiorano Modenese in Italy and will be built on the same site as an existing gym.
The new artifact is divided into a tall body (about 10.40m eaves/ parapet) that develops the sports area and a lower body that delimits the building on the west and south slopes. The link with the existing school building is also part of this.
The lower body houses the changing rooms, public services, offices, storage, and infirmary. The work consists of three structural units that are properly joined together, including the main body of the gym (body A) and two secondary bodies intended for changing rooms and other activities (bodies B and C).
The gym has a plant size of about 37x27m and a total height of about 10m. The height from the floor to the bottom of the supporting beams is 8.20m. The seismic design of the gym body was performed according to a performance approach based on displacement.
The advantage of using BIM
The most important aspect was to be able to integrate different construction technologies and structures organically.
