SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Today, cities represent 3 % of the planet's surface and concentrate more than 50 % of the population. A figure that will rise to 70 % by 2050. In addition, cities generate more than 80 % of the world's gross domestic product (GDP).
In addition to facilitating access to essential services for life - such as energy and water - ACCIONA contributes to making cities places of productive well-being in which to live, favouring people's socio-economic development.
The building has a geothermal system to support the air conditioning system with chilled water, a radiant ceiling heating system, blinds and curtains on the south facade to avoid direct sun, lighting control in the whole building and a photovoltaic system on the rooftop. The project also included the construction of an underground parkade, to be developed by the local city council. The hospital centre will be managed by the Mollet Health Consortium.
