THE MASTERPLAN GENERAL AS A TOOL FOR

STRATEGIC ACTION SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT

The masterplan is a fundamental document to the planning able to identify with detail the priority strategic areas on which to intervene.

To have an effective operational tool is necessary to develop:

  • Step 1: a timely current analysis program for the areas of interest to the project, creating an overview and summary of knowledge; in particular should conduct a systematic survey and evaluation of relevant elements on a territorial scale
  • Step 2: With the first results obtained it’ll be realized an overall strategic plan to identify:
    • areas of natural territorial parks,
    • the urban area
    • the relative connection access.

Also being at the stage of feasibility and preliminary identification of the activities, a correct approach to the design as a whole allows the achievement of goals with the optimization of available resources.

For what it pertains to the urbanistic and territorial aspects it needs therefore:

  1. Locate the territorial cornerstones of environmental protection aimed at the enhancement of the place understood as man-made environment ;
  2. These cornerstones must be assigned values of importance to a greater or lesser protection

 

  1. On this basis, is necessary to identify the bands of protection that allow the coexistence of the natural habitat and man-made environment.

This first step allows us to identify the areas delegated to host the “services”, including:

  1. energy production systems, both electric and possible water softening;
  2. Systems of disposal of solids and of waters waste;
  3. infrastructure connecting systems, both terrestrial and marine and possibly air
  4. systems for storage of materials pre and post-production
  5. Macro areas for the preparation of the general construction site;
  6. housing system designed to accommodate the workers who will work on the project;
  7. Construction of the first facilities to the workers service.

With these premises and identified various areas, it is necessary to imagine starting of a macro yard which contains within it a relatively homogenous materials storage system.

In fact, it must necessarily rationalize the number of technologies and construction techniques in function of:

  1. a language as homogeneous as possible the design according to the place where we’ll go to work;
  2. simplification of construction technique applicable to local workers;
  3. ability to maintain the finished product as a whole and in its parts
  4. Storage of the elements for routine maintenance;
  5. Prediction of unplanned maintenance.

 

As described above may be implemented as a function of:

  1. cooperation program between companies and teams of local operators;
  2. Training relating to the knowledge of the individual techniques and building technology.

 

This will benefit:

  1. Efficiency of the area understood as populated structure in its entirety.
  2. The general growth of knowledge of the local population, not only in terms of economic value, but also of intellectual growth; what it will benefit also of the urban system that will benefit from a rise in values to its surroundings, gradually reducing the disturbances in terms:
    • environmental,
    • economic,
    • social.
