BASE ISOLATION AND STRUCTURAL CONFIGURATION

This paper illustrates the design criteria that guided the architectural and structural designs of the base isolated buildings of the new Emergency Management Centre of Foligno (Umbria).
A special attention was paid to the architectural shapes and structural configurations. They have been selected in order to maximize the effectiveness of the seismic protection that can
be achieved through the Base Isolation approach. The high potentiality of the Base Isolation option is also illustrated showing its capacity to solve the design problems that arose when,
at the end of a first structural design phase, the new Italian seismic code attributed Foligno to a higher level of seismic risk. The construction works of the buildings are now in progress.

BASE ISOLATION AND STRUCTURAL CONFIGURATION

THE NEW EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT CENTRE IN UMBRIA

 Alberto Parducci, Sandro Costantini, Alfredo Marimpietri, Marco Mezzi, Roberto Radicchia, G. Tommesani

 

The local Government of the Umbria Region have financed the design and construction of the new building complex of the "Emergency Management Centre", located in a wide area neighbouring of Foligno. The Centre will be the operative basis of the national "Seismic Management Service" for the activities in Central Italy. The buildings will be provided with Base Isolation systems.

 The building complex extends in a large area of about 35 hectares. A technical staff of the Umbria Region planned the arrangement of this area, including in it the following building sections : 

(1) Central operative building (the dome building);
(2) Administration; 
(3) Training and meeting hall;
(4) Fireman barracks (quarters and parking);
(5) Red Cross (provisional quarters and storehouse);
(6) Car-park;
(7) Corps of foresters;
(8) Service centre;
(9) Protection of the cultural values; (10) Storehouse; (11) Water provision.

The buildings from (1) to (9) and their complementary units have been designed providing them with Base Isolation systems. Only the buildings (10) and (11) have fixedbase structure, because they had been built before the decision to enhance the seismic protection of the Centre by the Base Isolation option.
