Luxury Residential Complex RexLiana
On the seafront of Pesaro, the Eden Viaggi group financed a project for the demolition of two existing hotels, adjacent to the more famous “Hotel Excelsior” and the reconstruction of a building destined for luxury residences.
The idea was born to meet the changes of the last years related to the tourist-receptive market and to provide the waterfront area with a new building exclusively for residential purposes. Eden Viaggi, owner of both buildings, has entrusted the design to three different engineering companies for the construction of a building, consisting of ten floors above ground and two underground. The project involves a ground floor for commercial use, residences on the upper floors and a private apartment or “villa” on the last two floors, overlooking the sea. During the planning phases, the engineering companies immediately found numerous problems related to the structure and in particular to the foundations area. The first difficulties arose to preserve the stability of adjacent buildings; therefore, vertical bulkheads along the entire perimeter of the lot have been provided to contain the horizontal thrusts of the surrounding land. Another issue to be solved was the integration of two different elevation structures, moving from a reinforced concrete frame to the lower floors to a lightened steel frame to the upper ones.
With the project management activity, REACT has proposed itself as a “mediator” between the engineering companies and the customers, allowing having a project from the beginning can be defined as integrated, planned and verified.
REACT has previously checked the project through the BIM and with the Project Management activity it has optimized the time and costs of implementation, verifying, coordinating and managing all the activities. The assignment signed by Eden Viaggi was primarily concerned with the support of REACT to the three engineering companies, in order to analyze and verify the architectural, structural and MEP engineering solutions adopted for the new building. Furthermore, the creation of an “as built” model of the entire complex was requested, in particular to manage the construction phases. In this way, it was possible to check for interference, prioritize interventions and have greater control over the quantity take off and therefore costs. Then we have been able, through BIM, to simulate the demolition and reconstruction phases of the building. This activity proved to be crucial, as, highlighting the criticality of the site, it found optimal solutions for the construction of the site and for the management of heavy vehicles.
