Ferrero SpA Headquarters

Alba, Italy

Umbrella Green Network (UGN) members supported Manens Intertecnica and the design team from studioa.s. to formulate green strategies by providing integrative design and charrette facilitation services for Ferrero, the world-renowned chocolate manufacturer. The team focused on integrative design strategies to develop this new 16,000 m2 / 172,000 sq.ft. office building on Ferrero’s corporate campus in Alba, Italy. Such strategies produced integrated approaches to significant energy savings, daylighting, renewable energy generation, rainwater harvesting, and natural ventilation with results that would qualify the project for LEED Platinum Certification.
