The extraordinary maintenance work involved the Cortina d’Ampezzo rectory and the exposed part of the adjacent kindergarten, both part of the Frenademez complex
The work carried out on the rectory involved improving the building’s energy efficiency by insulating the external façades, both plastered and panelled, and, in addition, replacing the heating plant. For the elimination of all possible thermal bridges and moisture accumulation near doors and windows, taping was applied to the existing counterframe, generating a vapour barrier capable of preventing condensation accumulation; subsequently, 1 cm Aerogel panels were applied for the complete insulation of the window and door frames, capable of providing excellent insulation without affecting the size of the frame. The finishing of the plaster, in compliance with ETA certifications, included a double skim coat with fibreglass mesh and PVC edge protectors to shape the insulation layer, and finally the formation of the siloxane plaster with a 1.2 g grain size laid on with a trowel for a rough plaster result in respect of the local tradition. The finish for the wooden cladding involved the installation of a new fir matchboarding, finished with a coat of solvent-based impregnating agent and two coats of coloured finish to give the work the characteristic look requested by the client.
In addition to the above-mentioned interventions, all the wooden balconies in the rectory were replaced, complete with flooring, parapets and covering of the iron support beams. All as the original pre-construction ones. The maintenance of the kindergarten‘s exterior façade involved the entire plastered surface, which had deteriorated due to low temperatures and heavy rain. In the same way, work was carried out on the balconies, including restoring the gables, rustproofing the protruding ironwork, restoring the reinforced concrete and resurfacing the sloping screed with new flooring. On the façade, the wooden eaves overhang was replaced and finished with three coats of protective oil to achieve the desired shade, all the marble windowsills were cleaned by sanding, and lastly, the roller blinds were replaced.
At the end of the work, the building retained its original appearance as required by the superintendence.
