The tallest timber structure hotel in Europe
The assembly works of the Hotel Nautilus in Pesaro, completed with XLAM timber panels, have been completed.
The CLT Stora Enso panel, distributed exclusively in Italy by MAK BUILDING, is once again the protagonist of one of the most important project on the national territory, demonstrating the great achievements that timber constructions are reaching in Italy and in sharp contrast with the market conditions that have affected traditional construction for several years now.
Construction works of the NAUTILUS HOTEL in Pesaro began at the end of September: a seven-story hotel structure conceived and designed entirely in timber using X LAM technology. There is an increased awareness around the use of timber cross-laminated panels to solve important starting requirements for design purposes, such as mechanical resistance, fire resistance, sustainability, speed of execution, energy containment and above all certainty of construction costs.
This important project was made possible thanks to the experience and professionalism of established Italian companies in the bio construction sector: from the architectural design of the Marco Gaudenzi & Associati studio in Pesaro, to the structural works directed by Ing. Attilio Marchetti Rossi to the material implementation mastered by CENTROLEGNO srl
The works were completed just six months from the beginning of the construction site. Approximately 350 square meters of floor space were installed during the first four days of works. As we know, the approach to timber as a structural material considerably reduces the execution time compared to the use of other construction materials (cement, steel, etc.).
The hotel building, with its 27 meters of height and a total surface of 2,458 square meters is the highest ever built in Europe for hospitality facilities, using a total of 788 cubic meters of CLT. From a structural point of view, it is a building totally considered anti-seismic (experts have calculated that in the case of an earthquake with magnitude 8, the top of the structure would oscillate by only 3 cm).
