In 2016, the joint venture formed by the company OHL and SARRIÓN commissioned ESTUDIO AIA the integral project of the structure of the New Hospital in Cuenca. Previously, in 2005, a construction project whose work was started had been drawn up by the Cruz-Petrement-Carvajal architecture studios. Later the execution works were stopped as a consequence of the economic crisis in 2008. The Administration rethought the work as a whole, and it was decided to write a new modified project with a significant reduction in the surface to be built.
ESTUDIO AIA drafted the entire project of the new structure with a complex foundation, part on piles and part on a direct footing. The whole structure is calculated in reinforced concrete with solid slab flooring except for the walkways that connect the different buildings that make up the hospital complex; these have being resolved in metal structures.
The development of the structure of the heliport platform located on the cover of the hospital’s surgical block was extraordinarily complex.
