Contractor Avintia has appointed STRUNOR to carry out the facade elements of the extension and refurbishment project of the new 123 Velazquez office block in Madrid.
Spanish architectural practice AE designed the restructuration of this former residential building into its new office use. Located in one of the best corners at the heart of the exclusive Salamanca neighbourhood in Madrid, the refurbishment works will follow a high quality standard, requiring all its vanes to be covered with the highest quality aluminium systems to provide outstanding thermal and acoustic values, as well as fire resistance eventually. Top floors will feature a bespoke second skin from STRUNOR employing a degraded and perforated aluminium sheet as its main element. The new building is expected to be ready for occupation by the end of 2017.
