It’s  water, the common denominator of the projects with which CONDOR SpA - a company specialized in innovative systems for building and infrastructures - will participate in Expo Milano 2015, previewing two projects on the theme of green building and sustainability.

A prestigious showcase, therefore, that confirms the international vocation of the Italian multinational,  and consolidates the company's policy on the subject of social responsibility.

CONDOR will be present at the universal exposition with a very ambitious program, which envisages in May, the renovation of the Torre Arcobaleno in Milan, and in June, the scientific presentation of the project and the first prototype of CONDOR Warka Water.

The Torre Arcobaleno, built in 1964, and once anonymous water tank in the perimeter of the important railway yard of the train station "Milano Porta Garibaldi", was the object of an initial renovation during the World Football Cup, organized in Italy in 1990,which transformed a degraded service work into an hallmark of color and creativity.

The renovation project, conceived for Expo 2015 - with the patronage of Milan City Hall, and the collaboration of Italian Railway (FS Italian Group) and the Milanese studio, Original Designers 6R5 Network - consists of a complex work of modernization, which will be completed in May, thanks to CONDOR equipment and design, and technical contribution of important companies such as Mapei, Marazzi, Bazzea, FilaSolutions,which together with Condor,  have provided technical support for the renovation.

"The urban redevelopment project is a tribute to Milan - explains Francesco Petrosino,  CONDOR SpA General Manager  - and to the millions of visitors that the city will host on the occasion of Expo 2015. Consider that the nearby Piazza Gae Aulenti, is recognized as the crucial center of Milan about fashion and modern architecture. The district finds  in the Torre Arcobaleno,  its colored ceramic totem, to remember the potter masters and the artisan origins of an industry recognized all over the world, as the excellence of Made in Italy ".

Over the years, the Tower has become a landmark and a symbol of sustainability, just for those who live intelligently and in harmony between technology, nature, tradition and innovation.

From a water tower symbol of a Smart City, to a water tower needed to improve and sometimes protect,  life in rural and desert areas: CONDOR Warka Water will be presented in June at the cozy Piazza Irpinia, area of the Chamber of Commerce of Avellino situated next to the Italy Pavilion of Expo 2015.
The project, designed and realised by the Technical CONDOR Department - in collaboration with the architecture studio Architecture and Vision - is the technologically advanced reply to the serious problem of access to water sources in developing countries.

In fact,there are still many significant landscapes in which women and children are forced to walk for kilometers looking for water, and then draw on reserves in any case contaminated.

"CONDOR Warka Water is an innovative structure - says Nunzia Petrosino,  CONDOR SpA CFO and Young Entrepreneurs of Confindustria Campania President - which will allow to condense water from the atmosphere, in the form of humidity, dew or fog, and collect it to use it subsequently and satisfy, at least in part, the needs of the populations in the desert or rural areas, which don’t have easy access to water. The design of the Warka,conceived by the studio Architecture and Vision, originally envisaged a structure, designed to support the collecting device,made of bamboo, exposing to wear problems. For a while, the creators were looking for a technological solution which would have solved this problem. Thanks to the structural elaborations of the engineers and architects teams, of our Technical Department, we were able to adapt the technology of our multicom (multidirectional scaffolding) to the structure of Warka,  improving the efficiency and ensuring durability in time. Once again, we concretely want to demonstrate to believe in the green evolution of our industry, whose engineering and management solutions can be used in order to respect  the social and cultural context of the countries where we operate. "

CONDOR currently ranks among the major market leaders, in the domestic and international scene, and it is also present in Africa, the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates.

On June 9th and 10th , during a workshop directed by architects and authorities of the scientific world, at Piazza Irpinia, inside the expositive area Expo 2015, the prototype and its related custom applications with the Multicom system, will be shown for the first time.
