AXA RE envisaged a building renovation through revitalization of its overall image as well as the increase of services delivered to potential tenants.
1 The Opportunity
AXA RE needed to refurbish a partially vacant commercial building in the southern area of Rome and put it back on the market. The 15,000 sqm structure was built back in the eighties and therefore suffering from outdated architecture and obsolete systems.
The client envisaged a building renovation through revitalization of its overall image as well as the increase of services delivered to possible tenants. AXA RE aimed at improving the building marketability, retaining current tenants and attracting new ones.
2 The Solution
C&W Project and Development Services team were instructed from the early stages to define a strategic process for a successful completion of the entire project.
The concept was to turn the building into a smart commercial hub through the merge of the two existing volumes and introducing several formal and informal meeting and collaboration areas. In order to enhance the overall image, the team proposed a façade renovation that would guarantee a recognizable image and improve the building energy efficiency: sustainability was a main goal of the entire refurbishment project.
The upgrade of MEP systems and redesign of the outdoor green areas were another tangible effort from both client and designer to contribute to the quality of the surrounding environment on a long-term basis. Wellness and work-life balance were also crucial in thinking about how to attract new tenants with a positive new working environment. As a matter of fact, the ground floor of the building hosts a small fitness center as well as a canteen featuring a dehor and outdoor dedicated areas.
Overall, the involvement of C&W PDS team at the onset of the project up to the final delivery effectively contributed to the successful completion of the project.
