Amagel A2 in Mantova

We are located in Squarzanella in Viadana, in the province of Mantova. The protagonist of this article is a former rustic farmhouse located here. Amagel A2 was chosen for the thermal insulation.


The energy efficiency

The technical studio Geom. Alfredo Rossi located in Parma designed the project for the recovery and energy efficiency of a former rustic farmhouse. The project involved the creation of two independent real estate units.

The project – as the architect Diana Rossi explained – needed to consider the landscape requirements and constraints the building is subject to. In fact, we are dealing with a compendium subject to landscape authorization due to the presence of the “Narvarolo” canal nearby. This constraint has, therefore, created the need to keep the external appearance unchanged as much as possible while also preserving the typological and morphological features of the building.”

The installation of the traditional external insulation coat did not allow us to respect the landscape constraints. Thus, we chose to install an internal insulation system for the heated compartments to improve the building from an energetic point of view.

We created an “insulation package” made of Amagel A2 panels applied on the existing solid brick masonry. Successively, Amagel A2 was paired with a panel of polyurethane foam sheets. Finally, to seal the panel, we applied a plasterboard panel. This package has permitted ensuring the internal thermal insulation of the living spaces.

Moreover, we were able to guarantee the minimum requirements as requested by the law for the thermal insulation of opaque structures. These requirements are much more rigorous nowadays, also thanks to the presence of the Superbonus 110%, which permits the recovery of existing buildings while respecting very strict fixed parameters.”

Thanks to a precise analysis of the building/plant system and a careful recovery project designed by the technical studio of the surveyor Alfredo Rossi, it was possible to achieve two important goals.

The first one is, undoubtedly, to allow those who will live in the redeveloped buildings to benefit from an optimal living comfort inside the house. And, secondly, to benefit from a significant tax relief.

Today, what allows us to continue dealing with the challenges of the construction market – as the surveyor Rossi underlined – is the continuous updating and communication with industry experts. Constant updating and research are fundamental for the positive result of the final project, without neglecting any aspect. Whether it is a performance issue or a simple aesthetic detail.”
