Environmental and social sustainability in the new Fratelli Cerentin showroom

The Cerentin brothers, Costante and Vittorio, started their family business of roofing, waterproofing and sheet metal work in 1984. Moving to Castion in 1997, they became independent in doing all types of sheet metal work in house by purchasing a press brake and a calender. The company expanded as Constant's sons joined, offering more services, increasing the number of employees and expanding the workshop. 

During the company visit, the students realized that sustainability is one of the most important values of this company as they are committed to the proper reuse of material from processing.

The design challenge envisioned by the Upskill 4.0 team with Andrea Cerentin is to take advantage of the new spaces available to the company for the development of a physical product showroom, with a focus on environmental and social sustainability aspects.

Students from ITS business services in Rome with the supervision of Tiziana Obici, project manager of Upskill 4.0, designed CerExperience, a showroom in which the company can present solutions such as standing seam roofs to its customers either through digital or by showing scale models. The goal is to carve out a space by reusing excess materials that can showcase the company's products and at the same time include educational activities for the younger generation.

This project is part of the "Upskill" project by Fondazione Cariverona and Upskill 4.0, with UniCredit as a partner. The main objective of the initiative is to develop innovation projects by enhancing territories and businesses in the provinces of Verona, Vicenza, Mantua, Ancona and Belluno through the involvement of young ITS students.
