In order to minimize CO2 footprint for transportation, the project works with mobility both on an urban and local scale. With our mobility consultant (MIC) we envisioned and researched mobility at different scales: the urban, the local, and the infrastructure needs for a LEED design. We proposed two scenarios:
At the urban scale, roads, highways, stations and other transportation possibilities have been analyzed. Further on, the building has been optimized according to the analysis. At the local scale, the ease for public transportation is increased. The stations have been located within a distance of 600-400 m in order to make the accessibility to the public transportation as easy as possible. The new construction of the three roundabouts will improve the circulation of both vehicle roads and pedestrian path without compromising the permeability of vehicle flows. Each sector of the parking is designed to operate correctly both as unique and as dependent parking systems, each sector is in fact a compartment separate with its own entrance, while the circulation system allows the transfer between the three different sectors in ensuring normal operating conditions access to and exit from any entry point. The accesses are guaranteed by ramp systems to two-way traffic.
Due to the high degree of access required to the sector through public service and reassurance from the envelope staging standard, scenario 2 proposes a substantial reduction of the basement by bringing provided for 650 cars to 325 cars. Halving the amount of underground parking areas would significantly reduce the volumes construction, excavation and the relative movement of earth with consequences important in terms of cost and the environmental impact.
