Renovation of co-living homes

The project consists of the partial refurbishment of a building built in 1973 and located at C/ Copérnico, number 6 in Barcelona. Since its construction, the building has housed two shared coliving-type homes, distributed over 4 floors of 450 m2 each, and a recreation club for young people on the ground floor and basement.

Collaborative project with maximum integration and coordination of the entire team

It should be noted that this is a collaborative project with a team made up of the architects of the DTRES studio, PS Engineering engineers and security coordination. To work, the LPS (Last Planner System) system will be applied, a work methodology that improves the productivity and responsibility of employees. The contract will be ‘openbooks’ to work with maximum cost transparency and full involvement of the owner, coordinators and the entire ROIG team, with the aim of guaranteeing a total adjustment to the budget agreed with the client.

Comprehensive reform

The scope of the project includes the complete renovation of the entire Plant 1 and part of Plant 2. The goal is to achieve 14 single bedrooms with bathrooms, common spaces and kitchen and laundry areas, on a total area of 655 m2.

New partitions, false ceilings and installations

It is a solid construction, plasterboard partitions, parquet flooring and false plasterboard ceilings. The entire distribution network of sanitary water and electricity, ventilation, air conditioning, Wi-Fi and heating installations will also be renewed. As for carpentry, the project proposes the complete renovation of the windows and the repair of the existing shutters.

Building in use: maximum safety and minimum impact

Roig’s team will have to be extremely meticulous with the safety of the spaces since the other plants will continue to be active during the works. To this end, the works will have independent access from the street, with unloading space and will also have an independent staircase and elevator, so that the impact on the neighbors is minimal.
