Case Study


Towards a better future

Area Legno is a young, dynamic company established in 1997 that leverages the accumulated expertise of its well-consolidated forerunner “Abruzzo Legnami” and specializes in the use of glued laminated timber to build houses, roofs and other structures. Area Legno has an unrivalled passion for the use of wood.
A leader in its field, it can boast 40 years of experience in business. Combining traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technological innovation, the company's state-of-the-art manufacturing systems are housed within its 20,000m² site in Città Sant’Angelo (PE) – an important center for the wooden buildings market and particularly for sustainable construction
Area Legno has a reputation for professionalism, passion and expertise. The company's ongoing research into the finest materials and the most modern machinery allows it to guarantee production standards of the highest possible quality. The company makes an important contribution to the development of sustainable architecture by providing solid – and economically advantageous – solutions that are the result of its commitment, intuition, experimentation and experience in the field of glued laminated timber. This genuine, natural approach is very much in keeping with the predominant material that the company works with day in, day out.
The environment lies at the heart of every Area Legno project, and respect for the natural world is one of the cornerstones of the company's philosophy, its entrepreneurial approach being geared towards responsible progress.
Area Legno operates throughout Italy. A team of experts is on hand to offer a complete, customized service that has what it takes to meet any set of requirements. The company's technical department, staffed by architects, engineers and surveyors, analyzes the requests and defines the most appropriate solutions. At the headquarters, within a specially fitted out space, advanced prototypes are designed by expert technicians. The construction and installation operations are carried out by highly specialized builders and carpenters, with a view to achieving the highest standards, which are, of course, essential in delivering full customer satisfaction.
The wood is protected thanks to the use of ICA exterior coatings – water-based impregnating agents and fire-retardant coatings for matchboarding and beams, which are available both in a white version, with anti-yellowing properties, and in a stained version; both versions can be applied as a single coat or overcoated with exterior finishes.
The partnership between the two companies has resulted in various types of constructions being built, from private residences to schools (such as the “Giulia Carnevale” nursery school in Onna and a nursery school in Paliano), hotel and catering sector solutions (the “Focolare di Bacco” restaurant in Roseto degli Abruzzi and the ”Hotel Cristallo” in Giulianova) and sports facilities (the gymnasium used by the national soccer team in Coverciano), amongst many others. Having completed a wealth of successful projects over recent years, Area Legno is considered to be at the forefront of this sector.
Today, thanks to its brand new, hi-tech facility, inaugurated in 2011, Area Legno is able to provide a high level of manufacturing capacity, with short delivery times and exceptional quality guaranteed; using the latest-generation machinery, it can offer its clients all of the construction technologies currently available on the market, serving not only as a builder but also as a construction consultant.
For years, Area Legno's painstaking approach has ensured the absolute reliability of its solutions, thanks to the rigorous checks conducted at all stages, from design, through manufacturing and the optimization of the production processes, all the way to installation. This also makes it possible to reduce costs and to deliver solutions that match the clients' requirements perfectly.
