40 Apartments in the Giron Group


The project, in short

GRUPO GIRON project and ARI rehabilitation program places in an economic conception of recycling and reutilization, not just the housing but the urban fabric as a whole. Emphasis is placed on urban spaces and aged infrastructures, with strong urban need of refurbishment and renovation. This has a cost of € 43,000 per dwelling.

The option to rehabilitate is three times cheaper than the construction of new work in Zaragoza. Urban renewal of existing infrastructure is two and a half times cheaper than new urban fabric.

GRUPO GIRON has some singularities that must be distinguished to justify the constructive solution chosen for the rehabilitation: the original brick has great strength, rigorous climate conditions, limited habitable conditions, thermal performance and individual heating facilities are very poor, patrimonial value of the whole and the massive scale of the rehabilitation.

The scope of rehabilitation is comprehensive and includes: the improvement of the thermal envelope, the improvement of the accessibility and the redevelopment of facilities.
