During the building’s reconversion, great attention was paid to energy and performance aspects. To do this, we have favoured the use of the most advanced technologies and the best materials available in constructing the individual units, attaining Class A energy classification, a result that for Venice is well-nigh unique.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL and THERMOHYDRAULIC SYSTEM The thermo-hydraulic system, with an independent VAILLANT ECOTEC gas condensing boiler for each unit, envisages efficient internal regulating with an RBM KLIMA FUTURA low-inertia floor radiating system, with the temperature being independently regulated in each room.A possible option for a multi-split hot/cold inverter air conditioning system has been envisaged. Each unit is provided with a high efficiency mechanically controlled ventilation system to guarantee maximum air quality. All bathrooms have top quality sanitary ware and free-standing washbasins, with fitted taps and mixers and wall mounted towel-warmers.The rooms are designed to favour energy saving and allow management costs to be kept to the minimum.

FLOORS AND WALL COVERINGS Top quality and very singular materials are used for the prestigious flooring. Polished marble and hand-planed Italian oak boards with brushed oil finish are used for the indoor flooring. Floors are in TASMA BEIGE or EMPERADOR LIGHT marble as also for the shower trays, in single block, dug and sand blasted. EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL DOOR AND WINDOW FRAMES ARREGHINI Tecno model external frames are in laminated brushed fir wood with RAL lacquering protection. They are complete with low emission triple glass and double glazing (class A - heat transmission rate 0.94 W/m2K). The original steel fittings have been restored. Where envisaged, wooden shutters or blinds were fitted. Internal doors are lacquered white with flush frame and concealed hardware.

THERMO-ACOUSTIC WALLS and INSULATIONS To guarantee a high thermo-acoustic performance, the double walls on existing masonry walls consist of fibreboard with SYNTHERMEVO eco-fibre steam barrier and insulation. The partition walls between units as well as the walls of each individual room, consist of soundproofing fibreboard and insulating TERMOLAN rock wool, to ensure maximum privacy and optimal living comfort.All the fibreboard sheets are KNAUF DIAMANT with high sound-absorbing density. Reinforced concrete KNAUF AQUAPANE slabs were used in the bathrooms. KNAUF was used for filling and plastering materials and SIKKENS ALPHATEX for the breathable water-based paints.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM The electrical system installed was designed to respond to any need for personalising lights, temperature, TV-SAT-Internet data network as well as volumetric and perimeter anti-intrusion systems.Furthermore, a centralised dust extraction system has been installed in every unit. All finishing materials are VIMAR ARKE’, while the video inter phone is ELVOX TAB FREE. LIFT The lift cabin installed in the Casa del Doge is both comfortable and noiseless. In installing it, the most stringent standards regarding safety and guarantees were followed.
