NEW BLOCK FOR THE REHABILITATION CLINIC, NOVAGGIO / The Novaggio rehabilitation clinic is a pre-eminent healthcare complex, located in a park which is itself an integral part of the architectural system and also of the rehabilitation process.
The clinic was set up in 1922 as a sanatorium for soldiers affected by tuberculosis, following the renovation of a nineteenth century hotel. The discovery of a vaccine and the weakening of the illness in the 1950s forced the hospital to transform into a true clinic, also providing surgery. In 1981 the structure opened up to civilians and focused on rehabilitation, becoming a well-known centre of excellence in Switzerland.
It has been expanded and restored since 1989.
Expansion and restoration of block B in 2011 involved Drytech in the building of an impermeable structure of the floors levels against the ground.
As well as working with the architect Boschetti, Drytech also worked in synergy with the structural engineers Giani and Prada from Lugano and with the firm GTL from Gravesano.
