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 obtained both the BREEAM® ES A "Project in Design Phase" certification and the BREEAM® ES A "Project in Construction Phase" certification. This world-leading sustainable construction assessment standard recognises facilities that are efficient in resource consumption while offering a high degree of comfort.
In turn, ACCIONA provides cleaning and disinfection, waste management and gardening services at the seven hospital facilities.
The University of Vigo Hospital Complex encompassed three hospitals:
- New Vigo Hospital, with 1,465 beds.
- Meixoeiro Hospital, with 422 beds.
- Nicolás Peña Hospital, with 120 beds.
The project won the international "Future Health Project 2012" award from the International Academy for Design and Health for being the best healthcare project in Europe.
