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 expansion to Logroño Hospital was carried out by integrating the old San Pedro Hospital into its structure; this was originally a tuberculosis hospital built in the 1940s, which had been refurbished and was operational, with a total of 260 beds and four operating theatres.
For the first 22 months of the project, the facilities were operating normally. Up to that time, measures were put into place to carry out the project without affecting the operation of the hospital, in coordination with the preventative medicine services management team. Top-down construction techniques were used in some cases for the construction in the crawl spaces, which was carried out next to the old building, at 5 metres below the building.
The South Hospitalization Building has six levels above ground and one below ground, and has undergone expansion and renovation work. The new hospitalization block has seven levels above ground and one below ground, and was built from scratch.
