Visit to the building housing the offices of Schwartz-Hautmont (Vila-seca, Tarragona)
On 25th October 2014, the group studying for the Master’s Degree in Architecture and Sustainability made a technical visit to the building housing the offices of Schwartz-Hautmont (Construcciones Metálicas S.A.), located on the Vila-seca industrial estate, Tarragona.
The visit was guided by the architects Coque Claret and Dani Calatayud, the people responsible for the project and the execution of the work. Amongst other things, they showed us the characteristics and main innovations in terms of energy use and construction. They also explained how the design process was carried out and how energy is currently being managed.
This visit was organized by the Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya (IREC – the Institute of Energy Research of Catalonia), within the framework of the European project called AIDA (Affirmative Integrated Energy Design Action).
