Corriere delle Opere, October 2010


Inside Bassano's Hospital the new sterilization central department will be effective shortly and will be equipped with an active air quality control for the automatic management of the air in order to continuously analyze the particulate.
The Department is divided into 4 areas with a controlled contamination: sterilized area (ISO 7), packaging area (ISO 8), clean area 1 and clean area 2.
The system assures the maintenance of the optimal functioning conditions of the different areas, starting from the analysis of all the variables which contribute to modify the microclimate: presence of people, volume of areas, sterilization equipment used, particulate concentration, differential pressure, temperature and RH, acting in real time on the regulation of the air quantity, on temperature values and humidity.
The new system vanquishes the restrictions of traditional systems because, operating with variables parameters, it preserves the air conditioning system in real time, following the different necessities of environmental safety, comfort and energy savings.
The data collection is based on the following parameters:
● dust concentration in the environment;
● differential pressure within contiguous environments;
● thermo hygrometers measures;
● presence of people;
● doors opening;
● conditions of filters;
The quantity of air, both emitted and aspirated, is managed accordingly the variation within the values of quality of the air, sampled in real time, in relation to the limit of maximum concentration of pollutants predetermined by the users. The "Guide Lines on the sterilization activity as a complete protection against biological agents, for the operator inside the health care facilities (Italian regulation D.Lgs 626/94)" from ISPESL (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Prevention) provide us fixed values of ACH to grant the protection of workers from the exposure to biological agents; today exist new systems of analysis which allow to constantly control the contamination. This information can be conveniently used as input in a dynamic control method for ventilation system. -- (Download article)

At the beginning of the stairs, located inside a niche, you can admire the statue of Concord, by the sculptor of Verona Gaetano Mutoni.
Another particular interesting room is the one believed as the bridal chamber of the Angeli Counts. The characteristic of this room is given by the technique used by the artist, Vincenzo Gazzotto: on a blue background have been portrayed white grotesques and mythological tales that depict the story of Cupid and Psyche taking advantages with the use of templates and stencils. The tour continues in the gold room, so called because decorated with threads of golden leaves on a base of plaster standing out, decorations of polychrome grotesques.
The last room touched by this tour is painted with pink marmorino. The entire surface was covered by various layer of interventions hiding the originals marmorino, so they proceeded, then, eliminating those trace and restoring the marmorino with the colour more similar to the original one.

European Business Journal - Monday, November 16th 2009

As general contractor in the construction industry, GUERRATO S.p.A. unites all of the expertise required to get building projects off the ground and completed. It is accustomed to being the sole party responsible for the entire building process. This expertise has been channelled particularly into the construction of hospitals and clinics including outfitting with all technical equipment. A family-owned company since the beginning, GUERRATO continues to boast the qualities of flexibility, rapid decision making and flat hierarchies that this implies. As the company has grown in both confidence and scope, so too have its activities.
GUERRATO came into being shortly after the end of the Second World War. The GUERRATO family still owns all the shares in the company and is actively involved in its day-to-day management. Its focus has always been on property development and general contracting although its emphasis on the health sector only started around 30 years ago. Since then, however, the company has developed an incomparable expertise in this sector so that it now accounts for around 90% of its business. "Our turnkey solutions encompass every step in the process from breaking the first sod on a green field site to cutting the ribbon on a fully equipped medical facility". says Vice President Mr. Pier Renzo Olivato. Over the years the company has completed more than 80 hospitals and clinics in Italy and abroad.
With such a wide portfolio of reference objects, GUERRATO has established itself as a leading player in its niche. The expertise required to execute such complex projects cannot be acquired overnight and means that it faces relatively little competition in its niche. "It takes time to develop as we have done and lean the ropes of this market", insists Mr. Olivato. "We now have a solid body of work that we can point to with pride when bidding for new contracts". In addition, GUERRATO has also expanded its activities portfolio. Besides general contracting, the company has offered facility management services for the last decade. These services typically include technical management of a variety of building functions, such as fire protection, health and safety audits, and service and maintenance of technical infrastructure, such as air conditioning, IT and utilities.
Around 30,000 beds in hospitals and clinics in Italy and abroad are managed in this fashion.
Although the medical sector is GUERRATO's main focus, the company has also applied its expertise to other buildings. It can also point to successfully completed projects in the industrial and artistic arenas.
Amongst its references in these arenas are the factory where the Galileo space telescope was built and reconstruction of Italy's biggest theatre the La Fenice Theatre in Venice.
Other interesting projects include the Grand Hotel Cosmos in Brazzaville, Congo, and the Grand Hotel Intercontinental in Paris, France. Another growing niche is the construction of research facilities, and the company has already completed the new European Academy in Bolzano, Italy, and the VEGA Nanotechnology Institute in Mestre, Italy. In order to tackle such a wide range of projects in such geographically diverse locations, GUERRATO relies on a broad network of locations both at home and abroad. The company is represented throughout Italy as well at strategic locations in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and South America. It employs more than 100 project managers as well as 40 project engineers and can call on a production staff of more than 1,200 people who are directly involved at domestic and foreign work sites. Worldwide the company has around 360 permanent employees. "We have been very careful in selecting markets to expand into", says Mr. Olivato. "We tend to orient ourselves to markets which are far from saturated in terms of infrastructure but where the political and economic situation is stable. For a long time, this has meant that Middle East as been our main focus. We are now turning our attention increasingly to Eastern Europe, where we are carrying out extensive market research to prepare the way for future activities".
If GUERRATO is extremely careful before extending itself geographically, it has also been cautious in expanding its fields of activity. Besides project development, it now offers project financing. "Thanks to our experience in the area of project development, we are confident that the investments we make in financing projects are well-placed and will be profitable for us", says Mr. Olivato.
GUERRATO has offered this particular service for the last five years on projects it has won the contract to construct and manage. In this way it is able to offer its clients advantageous terms as well as continuity of service. The hospital sector is particularly suited to this model as its requirements rarely remain static. As technology evolves, infrastructure, and the built environment must evolve to keep pace. This means that GUERRATO constantly returns to previously realised projects to implement changer necessitated by improvements in technology. The final area of activity pursued by GUERRATO could not be more up to date of vital to the future of the planet: alternative energy generation. The company is able to offer services in this area that cover the design, funding research, realization and subsequent management and maintenance of plants generating solar thermal or geothermal energy and photovoltaic power or electricity from liquid biofuels or biomass.
This is an area that is bound to grow in significance in the future as companies seek to reduce their carbon footprint by switching to renewable sources of electricity and heat energy. This is an issue that as far-reaching implications related to international efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and reverse climate change.
Clearly GUERRATO owes a great deal of its success to the experience and expertise of its workforce.
However, the company management can also be credited with a significant share of this success. By channelling this expertise into promising and profitable niche markets, GUERRATO has succeeded in dominating these niches and transposing this pre-eminence to the international stage. In doing so it has earned itself a deserved reputation as a solver of complex problems. -- (Download article)
