The new headquarters of Registro .it were inaugurated in the CNR Pisa Research Area, which, for the first time, has its own "home" in the place where it was born about 33 years ago. The innovative structure, which will host about 70 researchers and collaborators of Registro .it, is among the best examples of public sustainable building, and has earned the classification of "Almost Zero Energy Building". This very high energy performance structure has already won the "2018 Sustainable Development Award", promoted by the Foundation for Sustainable Development and Ecomondo.
The building, which has just been inaugurated, is equipped with cutting-edge home automation technology and was built using certified European spruce, a type of wood which, together with the construction techniques used, ensures durability, safety against earthquakes and fires, energy saving, the sustainability of materials and the healthiness of the premises.
The experimental fire safety tests conducted on the materials used were carried out by the Institute for the enhancement of wood and tree species of the CNR of San Michele all'Adige.
