In October 2018 Gmp started development on ARQBÓREA, a new office building on land in Las Tablas. Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
The project has been designed by the acclaimed architecture practice ORTIZ LEÓN. Its architectural proposal includes a double-skin with terraces and vegetation on façades with greatest exposure to sunlight. This efficient design component protects the building from direct sunlight and provides higher levels of comfort for occupants, as well as saving on energy costs substantially.
ARQBÓREA has been designed to maximise the wellbeing of users. In this respect, the development plans to create landscaped green areas and a rooftop area with two spaces providing views of the surrounding area and enabling users to unwind and relax.
The building has already obtained the prestigious LEED Platinum pre-certification in the category Core & Shell, the highest distinction awarded by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), and has initiated the WELL Building Standard certification process for Core & Shell, which guarantees the design and construction model focuses on the health and wellbeing of users. It aims to achieve Platinum standard, the highest rating level for WELL certification.
Within ARQBÓREA’s commitment to accessibility, it has initiated the process to obtain the top 5-star DIGA certification (Hallmark of the Level of Accessibility). This certification accredits that any person, regardless of their condition, can move around the building comfortably and safely.
