landscape and set off a true upturn in the real estate market.

In this new part of the Forum we’ll be presenting some projects or companies that should be of special interest for the nation, for institutional investors, and for the market in general. They’re real – not just ideas on paper – and offer hope for a return to an Italy that improves and grows.

by Valerio Fonseca

DoveVivo started in 2007 and, since then, it has promoted an innovative project which has revolutionised the rules of a conservative property market leasing flats, groups of apartments, whole buildings, property and student housing complexes with long-term contracts, if necessary, renovating the flats and managing them, renting individual rooms to students and young workers choosing to share accommodation.

DoveVivo currently manages a portfolio of 1,500 homes and 7 residences, with a surface area of more than 300,000 m2, in 11 Italian cities through a network of 600 owners and investors and a Community of 8,000 tenants.

The advantages of co-living

Co-living is a new way of living based on the prerequisite of sharing furnished spaces specially designed to have a private area, the room, and, at the same time, interact and connect with others. This offers a good response to the needs of young people between 18 and 35 who value the concept of ‘sharing economy’ and consider the house as a ‘service’, something to live rather than own.

Starting from this evolution, DoveVivo has gained leadership in the market as the result of its experience, developing an all-inclusive, carefree formula offering advantages to:

– home owners who want their property to produce income with the guarantee of full management and a certain, punctual long-term rental, without the risks of insolvency or vacancy, which turn into a saving of up to 30% compared to traditional rental;

– those with the capital to invest in property who can take advantage of DoveVivo’s skills, as they monitor the market, recognise the property most suitable for co-living and ensure a secure, lasting economic return;

– young people searching for a place with all comforts to live away from home who decide to co-live in complete safety respecting all the regulations, sharing spaces and expenses but especially interests, passions, courses of study and professional ambits.

The growth plan

The 5 acquisitions of companies with a profile compatible with DoveVivo’s business, both in co-living and student housing, have enabled the consolidation of the market and effective penetration of the student and young people’s accommodation sectors in terms of beds, cities with DoveVivo operations and product range. However, the industrial plan that DoveVivo intends to carry forward is increasingly ambitious and growth, through both internal and external lines, will be based on a strategy centred on the increase in property assets managed in the cities where the company already operates, development of the business in new towns in Italy and start-up abroad, aiming to close 2023 with a turnover of more than 150 million.

Gli interventi di miglioramento sismico sono stati definiti dalla verifica di adeguatezza commissionata all’Università di Roma “La Sapienza”.

È previsto il rinnovo totale degli impianti rispettando i principi dell’efficienza energetica e dell’eco-sostenibilità puntando sul recupero dell’energia e sull’installazione di apparecchiature a massima efficienza. Acqua di pozzo non potabile alimenterà le cassette di scarico dei servizi e altre utenze che non richiedono acqua potabile. Tutti gli impianti sono dotati di misuratori di energia che consentiranno il monitoraggio delle reti. Una serie di sensori rilevano le condizioni microclimatiche e consentono di monitorare il comfort ambientale.

Sono stati individuati spazi per lo Smart work per favorire la comunicazione e migliorare la creatività. Sono stati pensati alcuni luoghi per il benessere: Mensa e bar, kitchenette ed aree relax per incontri informali, una piccola palestra per l’utilizzo dopo l’orario lavorativo.

Saranno predisposte aree di sosta per veicoli elettrici con colonnine di ricarica.

Resti del pavimento di una domus romana, databile tra il I ed il III sec. d.C., rinvenuti durante recenti lavori, verranno esposti insieme ai resti delle mura serviane presenti in-situ, in un’area museale appositamente realizzata.

Il rilievo e la situazione as-built di ogni componente dello stabile sarà eseguito con metodologia BIM, per facilitare le future esigenze manutentive e gestionali, integrando il modello con il software già adottato in Banca per la gestione della manutenzione.
