Urban Planning

The project for Trecate, located on SP11, an important arterial road of connection between Novara and Milan, involves the realization of two buildings with logistical destination of use, composed of storage areas (warehouses), logistical offices and technical areas.

The planning of the building followed an approach oriented to the control of energy consumption and the rational use of energy. In order to maximize energy sustainability of the buildings and to reduce consumption to the minimum, the installation of solar panels on the roof and the realization of geothermic systems for the heating and cooling of work sites are presented.

Furthermore, the Evaluation of Environmental Impact is carried out in regards to the realization of geothermic wells with capacity superior to 100 liters per second for the new logistical center.

The present study aims at verifying significant effects on the environment which derive from the realization of the proposed work and its future activities.

In particular, the evaluations are provided in regards to the reasons of the proposals of intervention, the possible consequences on the environment, and the measures which are intended to be taken in order to optimize the implementation of this project as a complex totality of natural and anthropic elements.

Direct effects, possible indirect effects, secondary, cumulative, short-term, medium-term and long-term effects, permanent and temporary, positive and negative consequences of the projects were all identified and evaluated on the following factors:

–           terrain, water, air, climate, landscape;

–           material goods and cultural heritage;

–           men, fauna and flora;

–           interactions of all the mentioned factors.

Environmental themes pertaining to the realization of the whole project were analyzed, and the following categories were identified to be subject to VIA procedure:

–           Realization of two geothermic systems (hydrotermic systems with heat pump system powered with waters collected from the well);

–           Installation of a solar system for the production of electric energy from sustainable sources;

–           Construction project for the development of productive areas with surfaces of around 40 hectars;

–           Realization of private parking areas with more than 500 parking spots.
