Description of the job

  • Asbestos decontamination of metallic structures
  • Partial demolition and reconstruction of the false ceiling
  • Re-insulation with fire protection
  • • This was the first and the largest remediation intervention carried out in Italy on a civil building, which was kept habitable for the whole duration of the works.

Test phase

  • Between 1987 and 1989, the first decontamination was carried out on two floors, where the managers' offices were. This experience was essential to create a complex working plan for the remediation of the whole building. We can call this a pilot intervention, as we had to tackle all the main problems posed by the remediation of a working environment which is only partially empty.

Difficulties faced

  • The decontamination was carried out on one floor at a time, with filter floors above and below for refurbishment interventions only.

Critical points

  • The building hosting Ente Poste and Telecom offices kept being used for all the duration of the works. Another building was built to temporarily host the offices from the floors being decontaminated.

Innovative solutions adopted

  • This was the first intervention where a 200 m2 large prefabricated decontamination unit was used.
  • Amount of the contract: €. 3.594.540
