For the structural system, a very interesting combination is chosen and that is on the rise. It is a grid of GL24H laminated wood portico elements on which the CLT floors are laid. A logic system with very reasonable lights.
Wood is a natural, sustainable, and renewable material that has excellent technical qualities for use in practically any type of construction. But their use not only improves the quality of our homes and cities but also increases the forests used for their production, improving their maintenance and increasing rural employment.
For the structure, distinguished pine wood (pinus radiata) is used, it grows throughout the Cantabrian coast. In this case, it is wood from the Basque Country, transformed there and transported to Sant Cugat, betting on a local product, with the minimum possible displacement. With this decision, 650 tons of CO2 are stored in the structure of the building.
In this way, we maintain our commitment to the environment, promoting local, recyclable materials, with minimum consumption of CO2 for manufacturing and emission.
