Salini Impregilo to build ENIís new headquarters in Milan
Salini Impregilo has won a Ä171 million contract to build the new corporate headquarters of ENI, Italy's energy giant, in Milan. Located in the municipality of San Donato Milanese in the city's southeast, the headquarters will be based on a design by Morphosis Architects, the U.S. architecture firm led by Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne.
The complex will consist of three interconnected buildings for 4,600 employees on 65,000 square metres of gross leasable land or a net 57,000 square metres. The complex will include a cafeteria, a conference centre and a public exhibition space. The project is to be completed in 30 months. It will apply standards of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability to meet Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), one of the most popular green building certification programs in the world.
Each of the three buildings will be connected to one another by so-called sky-bridges. The Icon Tower will be the tallest at 11 floors and will have space for 1,300 employees. The Landmark Tower will instead be the largest, covering 23,700 square metres on nine floors. The Skygarden Tower at the centre of the complex will house a conference centre. Lamaro Appalti SpA will also take part in the project.
The contract reinforces Salini Impregilo's track record for innovative and iconic buildings. In Athens, it recently completed the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, while in Milan it built Palazzo Lombardia, the seat of the Lombardy regional authority. Among its current projects, Salini Impregilo is at work on the Meydan One Mall in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates where it is known for the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
