The new infrastructure, carried out within 14 months, with a constructed area of approximately 8,600 m2, spread over three floors and a basement. In this space, the new degree of Medicine will occupy approximately 3,500 m2 (40% percent of the total built) and will be located in the first and second floors of the same, in which are the classrooms and teaching laboratories, as well as part of basement, where the Ward of Anatomy has been installed. This room has an air renewal system compatible with the requirements of Occupational Safety and an array of sensors and probes in charge of detecting the concentration of harmful gases into the environment. To all this, a set of teaching laboratories and four commonly used laboratories for research work have been added.
Apart from own applications requiring the Faculty of Medicine, on the ground floor of the multi-purpose building has been installed a canteen, a conference room for 120 people and other areas for general administrative services of the Campus.
Incorporation of energy saving measures
It?s worth to note as unique construction elements the EURONIT ventilated facade, with a total of 4500 m2 and four curtain walls 9 x 15.40 m. providing plentiful natural light into the building. As regards facilities, highlights the automated management system of lighting, which promotes energy saving, and the building's air conditioning system with an installation type VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) allowing the possibility of having different parts of the building in cold and heat simultaneously.
Aldesa has recent experience in the construction of university buildings, such as Leonardo Da Vinci Center for the location of engineering in Rabanales Campus for the University of Cordoba, the extension of the building of the School of Management Building, and the construction of the new Library and Documentation Centre in Gandia, both for the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
