The extension is being built near the existing building and an uncovered filter area is planned between the two buildings at the north-west corner. The metal roof, above which the installation of 40 photovoltaic panels is planned, represents the functional connection between the two buildings.

The new construction has a shape composed of a broken line that generates interactions and resting places in correspondence with the courtyard space, which provides for numerous external arrangements, such as the creation of pedestrian paths with seats and covering pergolas near the entrances, flower beds and a private car park for the use of employees of both healthcare facilities. Furthermore, the overall project in question also takes into account the municipal will for the construction of a public car park in the north-west area (construction at the expense of the Municipality of San Giuliano Terme).

For budgetary reasons, however, the connection works to the future car park such as the street furniture inserted in the courtyard, although designed, do not entirely fall within the economic framework of the present project and are therefore a prospect of future construction.

Like the existing construction, the new building also consists of only the ground floor, raised from the ground level to reach the floor level of the current building.

The planned surface area is approximately 290 gross m2 and approximately 220 net m2. The finished height of the inter-floor is the same as the current construction.

Within the extension there are five medical clinics; a waiting room suitable for the volumes of healthcare activity carried out, whose number of seats will have to be correlated to the calculations deriving from the healthcare project; staff changing rooms separated by gender, equipped with toilets for exclusive use and showers, with dimensions suitable for accommodating at least five double-compartment locker places (to the extent of 1.20 m2 per person present at the same time); separate toilets for staff and users; storage rooms. Doctors' surgeries have a net usable area of at least 14 m2 with a regular shape that allows them to be equipped with at least the following standard furnishings and equipment: a desk measuring at least 140x70 cm with a small armchair and two chairs, an examination table, a screen or other structure, even mobile, which allows the patient who has to undress to have adequate privacy, two medicine and instrument cabinets, a free-standing examination lamp near the bed, a hand basin. Furthermore, they must be able to allow, in case of need, easy access and use of medical devices such as portable ultrasounds and electrocardiographs.

Descriptive and performance characteristics of the selected materials

External finishes

The finishes of the vertical surfaces are made up of external plaster, compliant with the CAMs, consisting of fibre-reinforced base plaster based on air lime and hydraulic binders, white smoothing coat based on lime-cement and painting with a fibre-reinforced elastomeric filler finish. The finishes on the horizontal surfaces, on the other hand, are made up of external plaster, compliant with the CAMs, made up of elastic two-component cement mortar, reinforced with non-woven polyethylene fabric and painted with a fibre-reinforced elastomeric filler finish. The chosen color tends towards a very light green (L 85 – C 8 – H 140) with SRI = 85, as required by the CAMs in the decree of 23 June 2022, to guarantee an SRI ≥ 76. The external floors, on the other hand, are in gray self-locking blocks, in order to guarantee an SRI ≥ 29. The choice of the flooring was dictated not only by the ease of installation but also by the fact that it is still possible to guarantee permeability to the ground, as per request of the Ministerial Decree 23 June 2022 in the matter of CAM.

Internal floors and coverings

The flooring of the internal spaces is foreseen in porcelain stoneware and the rooms, according to the functions, have different colors, as in the clinics where there is a light pastel green color (NCS code S 2010 – G40Y), in the changing rooms a lavender color (NCS S 2020 – R70 B), while for the user bathrooms the floor is light pastel green (NCS S 2020 – B40 G). The vertical surfaces, on the other hand, are plastered and painted with light dove gray washable paint (NCS S 1002 – Y80R), while the walls of the changing rooms and part of the walls of the users' bathrooms are in white porcelain stoneware (NCS S 0300 – N), as portion of the walls of the surgeries behind the sinks, while portions of the walls of the users' bathrooms are in light pastel green (NCS S 2020 – B40G). In the users' changing rooms and bathrooms, the window frames are painted the same shade as the flooring, while in the clinics a 10 cm band is created at a height of 215 cm that runs along the wall free from furnishings, from the windows to the entrance door , of the same shade as the flooring.

External and internal windows

The internal doors are all belonging to the type for hospitals and communities. They are presented in 9/10 mm thick plastic laminate, with a 45/50 mm thick honeycomb panel door surrounded by 50 mm thick solid hardwood and a telescopically assembled aluminum profile frame, or sliding in wood with hollow-core door and internal honeycomb cellular structure and veneered edges and veneered blockboard frame with a thickness of 8/11 mm covered with sheets of plastic laminate. The doors of clinics and user bathrooms are light beige (NCS S 1010 – Y50R), while the doors of the service rooms are dark dove gray (NCS S 05010 – Y50R). The external doors and windows are made of white PVC with thermal break and double safety glass, with swinging and tilting opening, thermal transmittance Uw = 1.3 W/m2K.

Solutions adopted to overcome architectural barriers

The interventions have been designed in order to improve accessibility to spaces for people with disabilities. All the paths, although inclined, have a slope such as to guarantee accessibility even for people with disabilities.

Solutions adopted for the arrangement of green areas

The arrangement of the greenery provides for the maintenance of the current pre-existing trees: 2 Privets on the south-east side, 9 Cypress poplars on the south-west side and 7 Cypress poplars on the north-west side. The parking area will be delimited with a line of flowerbeds, characterized by new tree essences made up of 9 Photinia and 9 Viburno, which will alternate in different positions and heights so as to create a green band that acts as both a shading of the car park and a filter for the area of the new construction, contributing to the purification of the air. The green belt is designed with essences, chosen to adapt to the pre-existing ones and the architectural project. The green composition provides for the insertion of 3 Photinia shrubs also around the perimeter of the external technical room, to delimit it and act as a visual filter, and 2 in the flowerbed located at the entrance of the new building in the pergola area which acts as a link with the structure existing. The lawn, which thanks also to the movement of earth recreates a natural context, will be sown.
