Ritec Retrospective: Torre Unipol, Italy

Rising to a height of approximately 127 metres (417 feet), this 33-storey tower is the tallest building in Bologna, Italy and serves as the headquarters of Unipol Group, a banking and insurance giant.

Designed by local architectural firm OpenProject, Torre Unipol incorporates various environmental innovations that achieved the prestigious LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification.

Although a number of low-maintenance glass surface treatments were initially considered, ultimately durable ‘non-stick’ Ritec ClearShield® was selected because of its proven performance based on many years of track records.

Ritec’s experienced Marketing Partner in Italy, AST (Advanced Surface Technologies) carried out the on-site renovation and protection work in 2013. ClearShield® protection ensured easier cleaning, saving time and effort, and also kept the glass looking like new for longer.
