Water HQ in Milan

From the ancient times of the Roman Empire the transport of water was crucial for the settlement and growth of cities in the current area of Northern Italy. Architectural forms and structures were raised forming an efficient supply system.In the present day the importance of this natural resource only grew stronger with it’s local shortages and deficit.

The new project by KAMJZ in Milan is the headquarters office building for CAP Group which is the first Italian public company and a consortium of 190 municipal branches working with the management and delivery of water services. Beeing among the top companies in Italy that handle this natural resource it was important to showcase it in the design in many aspects – from the external looks to the way it is handled within the site.

With the mission of assuring the supply of the water and all the services connected with it’s use, wastes collecting and purifying, the CAP Group HQ Building would develop a strong focus on the environmental themes.

Laboratories which control the quality of distributed water and are one of the most important functions in this building would be highly exposed to ensure it’s importance.Together with the exhibition floor they would have an educational function to inform citizens and help school excursions, which already currently visit the building every week, to understand all the charactersitic and physcial composition of water and it’s supply.

An additional issue to solve was maintaining part of the existing building operational during the construction process together with the department which has to constantly monitor the distribution of this important resource for the city.This was achieved due to a smart phasing proposal connected with an efficient people management scheme.
