LEED v3 Homes Italia Gold
“Palagio – Anzio” is the first “pilot” application of Metodo Palagio; it is considered experimental especially with reference to the site work for the innovative procedures foreseen and the need to test them in practice. Main areas of activity involved in process innovation are: design, training, contracts, building site management, procurement. Metodo Palagio intervenes on errors in the process with the aim to make convenient certified green building interventions for small businesses. As regarding design, Integrated Design has been introduced and has affected not only the methodology, but even the introduction of new competences (illuminating engineering, gardening, safety and security, family needs etc.). The establishment of a multidisciplinary team has allowed a broad view and the sharing of ideas. With regard to training, a new figure has been introduced: the “building site tutor” giving immediate and daily instructions to workforce and artisans. As the supply chain is made up of small enterprises, subcontractors and artisans, training is mainly realized on the job through learning by doing. Contracts: the team has worked to solve problems of disagreement between parties (building owner, contractor, subcontractor, suppliers). As for the training, in fact, small businesses disregard the importance of contracts, but the introduction of innovative products and materials could increase controversy if standard contracts are not provided.
We choose to certificate the energy and environmental sustainability of the project by the application of GBC Home, the Italian LEED rating system for small houses. GBC Home is a voluntary rating system based on six environmental areas: sustainable sites, Water efficiency, Energy and atmosphere, Materials and resources, Indoor environmental quality, Innovation in design. Each category has mandatory prerequisites and credits giving a score for the certification. GBC Home has 4 certification levels: Certificated, Silver, Gold and Platinum which is the higher certification level. The certification target for Palagio Anzio is Gold.

Palagio Anzio design establishes an high level of energy performance especially due to the use of renewable energy by means of photovoltaic panels on the roof. The use of an high energy efficient enclosure and of high performing heating and conditioning systems give to the building the possibility of achieving an improvement of about 89% in the energy performance rating compared with a baseline building performance rating. Palagio Anzio will be totally unplugged from the local gas network and it will be only powered by renewable energy.
Palagio Anzio has also high performances in water use reduction. The design establishes the use of high efficiency fixtures to reduce potable water demand (toilets, bathroom and kitchen faucets, showerheads). Palagio Anzio also limits the use of potable water for landscape irrigation, through the use of rainwater captured from the roof and of plant species with low irrigation requirements.
According to the requirements of GBC Home, Palagio Anzio employs strategies that, in aggregate, use about 38% less water than the water use calculated for a baseline building. The design and construction of Palagio Anzio give high importance to the indoor air quality, so that all the used indoor materials will be VOC free, according to the requirements of GBC Home rating system, especially referring to paints, adhesives, sealants, floor systems.
