Description:
The building, called Q2, is expansion of research facilities established in the campus of Basovizza Area Science Park in Trieste and is intended for the Consortium for Molecular Biomedicine (CBM), a consortium with participation of public-private partnership that includes 15 members, representing the recognized excellence of public research (AREA Science Park and the International School ISAS), of industry (Bracco), of finance (General Insurance) of health (IRCCS regional Oncological Referral Center, Aviano and Hospital Burlo Garofolo of Trieste) , of the company for advanced services (Italtbs) and of other non-secondary institutions and companies, together in the objective of effective technology transfer of research results.
The new building is the first phase of implementation of an existing project which provides a more articulated structure realized in two phases (phase 1 - phase 2 and Q2 - Q2bis). The new building is organized on four levels including two basements, in addition to the offices and laboratories for chemical and biological (traditional and PCL 3) There is also a floor for the testing activities to be carried out in a double structure "enclosure" (laboratories for rearing and experiments on mice and small rats), the first with a traditional typology and the second with SPF typology. The open spaces are set up for car parks for researchers and visitors. The design was developed in order to ensure the optimization of space in relation to their use and to the necessary specialized control for safety. Particular attention has been paid to the issue of energy consumption by proposing technical solutions that ensure the Class A certification accordin to D.Lgs. 29/12/2006 n. 311.
