Residential Building

This is the second Metrovacesa development in the Poblenou district of Barcelona, specifically at Calle Ramón Turró 272. The real estate company has relied again on ROIG for the construction of this multi-family building of 34 homes, 3 premises, 18 parking spaces for cars, 18 for motorcycles and 34 storage rooms.

The project, designed by the BCA architecture studio, has conceived a building of modern and current aesthetics with floating parquet floors in all homes, except kitchens and bathrooms, in porcelain stoneware tile.

Special foundations and proximity to the coast

The project comprises a high technical complexity in terms of the work prior to the emptying of the land. Screen walls up to 15m deep will be made with excavation by cable machine and bentonymic muds to prevent the collapse of the land as it is excavated. In addition, the project has a series of deep foundations (zapiles) of up to 18m, necessary for the discharge of the forces of the pillars to the depth of the resistant soil substrates.

The fact of being a few meters from the sea, leads to a water table dewatering system through a pumping installation consisting of 4 pumping wells, channeling network to evacuation point and decanter for filtering fines. For the discharge of water, it will always be carried out according to the report of the Catalan Water Agency as it regulates the way of pouring the different groundwater that is in each site of work.

Insulation to ensure maximum thermal comfort

The facades are resolved externally with ceramic brick and thermal insulation, with air chamber and interior cladding of laminated plaster partition. As for the exterior carpentry, we have opted for carpentry with thermal break, blinds with insulation in drawer and double glazing type Climalit with air chamber, guaranteeing adequate thermal and acoustic comfort.

Solar panels and mechanical ventilation for better energy efficiency

As for the air conditioning, air conditioning and heating systems (hot-cold) will be installed through false ceiling ducts and grilles in all rooms. For the production of domestic hot water, an electric accumulator will be available, with the support of water preheated by solar energy. In this sense, the installation of community solar panels has been planned, as well as a mechanical ventilation system that will allow a better energy efficiency of the house.
