Ecoeficiency

CENTRE ESPLAI was conceived from the beginning as a sustainable building. Its orientation allows a maximum utilization of natural light and its double facade on the north side isolates the building and saves energy, because it prevents overheating in summer and the loss of heat in winter.

The roof is equipped with solar panels, which heated the building’s health water to 45ºC and with photovoltaic panels, which generate electricity that is later sold to the electric network. The building is also fitted with a water reuse system which consists of two huge underground water tanks. One of them gathers rain water which is later used to water the garden, and the other holds the waters of the showers and hand lavatories, which we later use, after a careful sanitary treatment, as water to flush the toilettes.

On the other hand, the greatest part of the lighting is done with an innovative pipe system that brings the light of the sun from the roof to the rooms through mirrors. As for the electric lights, the whole building is fitted with fluorescent and energy saving bulbs.
