LEED®certified logistics warehouse


Located in Bovolone, in the province of Verona, it is a building for logistics use consisting of a warehouse section of about 12,000 m2, an office section of about 500 m2 and a caretaker’s house of about 125 m2. It is equipped with 10 loading bays.
The shell and structural frame are made of precast concrete. In the warehouse, there are skylights in the roof; in the offices and the caretaker’s house, on the other hand, strip windows ensure an adequate contribution of natural light to the lighting comfort of the spaces.
The HVAC system is composed as follows

in the warehouse spaces, which are not air-conditioned, there is a mechanical ventilation system with air handling units;
negli spazi ufficio e nella casa del custode, è presente un sistema VRV per riscaldamento e raffrescamento e recuperatori di calore nel controsoffitto per ventilazione meccanica.

The lighting consists of LED luminaires. There is a photovoltaic system on the roof.

Punteggio Leed - POV1


LEED® pre-assessment feasibility analysis

Preliminary assessment of the overall sustainability of the intervention: choice of the best LEED® certification rating to be applied, of the achievable credits and assessment of the resulting achievable certification level.

LEED® TM in design phase

Project team coordination activities through:
– Guidance on the choice of design features, materials and equipment in accordance with LEED® requirements.
– Project management on the LEED® online portal.

LEED® TM during construction

Construction team coordination activities through:
– LEED® approval of supplies.
– Coordination of activities related to the implementation of site plans
– Project management on the LEED® online portal.

Fundamental commissioning

Commissioning is a prerequisite for LEED®, the main purpose of which is to ensure that buildings and installations are designed, constructed and delivered to the client according to clear and well-defined criteria. The tangible benefits of the process, if implemented on time, are
– increases in occupant productivity
– containment of construction costs
– shorter plant commissioning times

Advanced commissioning

Advanced Commissioning for both installations and building shells, in addition to the basic commissioning activities, includes the analysis and drafting of further documentation to support the subsequent operation of the installations and the implementation of tests on the installations 10 months after occupancy.

Energy modelling

Activity to construct the energy model of the building-plant system. The aim is to compare two models of the same building, baseline and proposed, the first built according to Ashrae 90.1 app. G and the second according to the project. The result is a snapshot of the building’s consumption based on the implemented usage standards, which are the same. The prerequisite and related credit involves comparing the “proposed” and “baseline” models in order to calculate a percentage of energy cost savings and assign a score consistent with the final certification score.

LCA analysis

Evaluation of the building’s life cycle using a structured and internationally standardised method to quantify potential impacts on the environment and human health by distinguishing them into different categories.
For each of these categories, the percentage reductions in environmental impact were calculated by comparing the proposed project with a reference model, equivalent to the project in shape, size and orientation, constructed using traditional building materials.
