The first site of the Scuola, in the convent of San Silvestro in Pisa, now hosts the NEST – National Enterprise for nanoscience and nanoTechnology. The restoration was set out to cover two goals: on one side preserve the image of the building, on the other update the plant and technological systems, in order to host the new scientific labs. It stands as an example of integrated design in a historical context, which was made possible through BIM technology. The creation of an AS BUILD model, in collaboration with the construction enterprise, allowed the optimisation of all project phases, from the revealing process to the management of technological equipment.
