Fornella Camping & Wellness Family Resort e l’impegno per l’eco sostenibilità che passa anche attraverso le mobile home
Fornella Camping & Wellness Family Resort and the commitment to eco-sustainability, which also extends to the mobile homes. The ongoing climate change reminds us that each of us, both as individuals and businesses, must make eco-friendly choices in the short term. Fornella Camping & Wellness Family Resort is firmly focused on this objective and has been working in this direction for several years, positioning itself as one of the most eco-friendly camping villages in Italy. During the Milan Design Week, Mr. Sgmar Cavazza, the owner, presented the significant project “Fornella One Earth 2030,” born from the desire to create a fully sustainable environment, in which we have actively participated.
“Fornella One Earth 2030″ is a pilot project aimed at setting new standards for sustainable hospitality in our Camping & Wellness Resort,” explains Cavazza. These standards are based on the current “best available practice” and are integrated into a continuous improvement process. The architectural and functional aspects of the project were developed in collaboration with Crippaconcept, adhering to the criteria of the “Ecocamping” certification.
The project focuses on the following key aspects, combining residential comfort and open-air experiences within a context of sustainable awareness and guest satisfaction: designing and seeking architectural and construction solutions that are efficient, durable, and adaptable over time; achieving energy efficiency and independence; promoting water savings; adopting circular economy principles; addressing management aspects and social responsibility; designing a botanical and natural setting inspired by the principles of reducing carbon footprint, resilience, adaptability to climate change, the concept of “food forest,” and the well-being of pollinating insects.
THE MOBILE HOMES NEXT EVO SPECIAL FORNELLA AND THEIR LOW ENERGY IMPACT
Regarding the mobile homes developed by Crippaconcept, the Next EVO Special Fornella, currently available in 7 units and set to increase in the coming months/years, several unique aspects make them perfectly integrated into this important project. Specifically:
A philosophy of sustainability guided the choice of construction materials. 70% of the materials used are of natural origin, and 18% comes from recycled sources. Moreover, 75% of the materials are recyclable, reflecting the commitment to eco-friendly production. These aspects are especially crucial for investors in the sector, who increasingly demand products and services with a strong sustainable impact.
Energy efficiency is at the core of the design. Thanks to the integrated photovoltaic system with a nominal power of 8 kW/h, it is possible to fully cover the internal energy needs and any additional requirements, without any additional costs for guests. An ideal choice for those who wish to offer a green vacation experience, minimizing environmental impact.
Thermal insulation is achieved through the use of recycled and recyclable natural materials, such as natural cork for the walls and rock wool for the roof. The exceptional thermal comfort ensures a pleasant and welcoming environment for guests in all seasons.
The controlled air conditioning system regulates indoor temperature with efficiency and precision, reducing energy waste. Equipped with sensors, it automatically deactivates when doors and windows are left open for an extended period, optimizing energy efficiency. The air conditioning operates at a temperature between 21 and 25 degrees Celsius and shuts off when the guest is outside and the mobile home is locked.
Water usage is also closely monitored. With flow limiters, the shower uses only 9 liters per minute, while the faucets provide only 4 liters per minute. Additionally, the toilet cisterns allow for 3 to 6-liter flushes, ensuring reduced water consumption without compromising guest comfort. The dishwasher is only operational during peak solar radiation hours (from 8 am to 7 pm), maximizing the use of solar energy produced.
Furthermore, the camping village practices door-to-door recycling. Electrical and water consumption is continuously monitored, as collective efforts can significantly reduce climate-altering emissions. Pesticides and herbicides are not used, and plant care relies on biological and natural systems. Fruit-bearing and culinary plants are planted throughout the green area surrounding the mobile homes, carefully selected to withstand climate changes. Mulching of flower beds is made with locally recycled materials or materials from nearby companies. Drip irrigation is carried out by recycling pool water. Additionally, an area left specially as a flowery meadow for the well-being of insects can be found behind the mobile homes.
Every aspect of the camping village is involved in this process, and guests are made to feel an integral part of it, encouraged to commit to eco-sustainability.
“The welcoming atmosphere immersed in nature, combined with maximum comfort, well-being, and privacy, makes the stay experience in our resort unique and unforgettable,” adds Cavazza. The project aims to offer a new, conscious, and engaging open-air vacation experience, reflecting the values of environmental responsibility and guest well-being.
We are truly proud to be part of this commendable project and hope it will inspire many other hospitality structures.
