Gianluca Ravara Architetto’s objective for this project was to enhance the
Italian city of Borriana’s public square for pedestrians by reducing vehicular
traffic and eliminating the parking places in front of private buildings. Capital
expenditures totaled approximately $1 million.
Bentley design software provided efficient transfer of information and helped
keep the project on time and within budget. The main municipal building was
restored to give it prominence among the other structures. New, comfortable
recreational areas and spaces were created to foster interaction among
citizens, provide pedestrian walkways, and encourage shoppers to visit stores.
Our long-standing partnership with Bentley in the development of forward-thinking
innovation for project delivery—from design charette to energy modeling to contract
documents—has proven to be a continuous boon to our creative processes.
