With assets of EUR 4 billion, Beni Stabili is a key player in the Italian real estate market and boasts a portfolio of properties located in major Italian cities.
In Milan, in Piazza Monte Titano, an office building had been selected for a functional conversion to a hotel.
For this project, the timeframe and budget were very tight.
The hotel operator required the building to be occupied in May 2018, demanded that its standards be met and that the building obtain LEED® certification.
However, as the building was not designed as a hotel, the spaces were cramped and unsuitable: every element had to be studied in detail.
Planex specialises in the design of hotel facilities, and with its GreeningLAB and CommissionLAB divisions, it has extensive experience in LEED® Certification and Commissioning.
Beni Stabili chose Planex because they felt secure in turning to real experts in hotel facility design, who could at the same time integrate smoothly into the LEED® certification process.
Once the project was developed, Planex intervened in the management and direction of the construction site for the plant components, managing to contain possible delays and enforcing the economic agreements.
Thanks to the precise and comprehensive design, with an unwavering supervision of the construction site, Planex’s construction managers ensured that the building site was finished one month ahead of schedule and within budget.
The building was thus converted into a functional and comfortable 131-room hotel. The facilities are fully functional and of the highest efficiency.
