Short Description / Consultant for the quality control company of the façade and roof
Year / 2010

Architect / Jan Kaplicky, Future System

Bureau Veritas had the task to test the  quality of the new structure in the Ferrari Museum in Modena. MEW was involved as consultant on site during construction to help testing both the main “yellow” roof and the sloped glazing facade.

The project is a refurbishment of the first Enzo Ferrari home building with his own parking where he built his first racing car. Due to its incomparable historical value, the new building was conceived by the architects like the hood of a F1 car, a piece of Ferrari itself. The cable net glazing façade has a very smooth shape and includes pre-stressed cables with flat insulated glassed attached. This unusual shape requires careful detailing, technical design and construction Global oscillations were also controlled by testing site values against the predicted ones.
