REHABILITATION OF AN OFFICE BUILDING

REHABILITATION OF AN OFFICE BUILDING IN CITY CENTER OF VIGO. 2009

It is finally completed and already working the office building that La Urbana has rehabilitated in the heart of downtown Vigo.

The project was a challenge because the retail in the ground floor could only stay closed for two months.

In the first month we had to demolish and remove all the expected materials,  make the new pillars, the elevator pit, the dividing wall between the retail and the portal and finally the first floor waterproof slab. Thus, the retail was reconditioned in the second month and ready to open by the end of it.

All this working in a pedestrian street, with the subsequent access problems for trucks and machinery. In addition, we were surrounded by very old buildings with fragile dividing walls and other unexpected circumstances appearing during the Works.

The final result nevertheless left a great impression to all involved: we know that the owners are very satisfied, the construction company, first Exconsa S.A. and later Construcciones Palleiro S.A. did a great job, and the lodgers of the offices have often transmitted to us the possitive feedback from their customers and the “wonderful experience” of working in such a place.

Here you can enjoy some pictures of the finished building, made by 7cero, and some others of the building before the refurbishment.
