Célere Magòria is a development of 175 homes in Barcelona with an "A" energy rating, it has ventilated facades using polymer concrete panels from ULMA. The new complex is located in the district of Sants-Montjuïc on Gran Via de Les Corts Catalanes, just five minutes from Plaza de España. The residential project was rated as the most important urban development operation in Barcelona in the last decade.
The real estate sector has a significant environmental impact: it consumes 32% of global energy and emits a fifth of CO2 emissions.
In Célere Magòria, the "A" energy rating, means that the development has an estimated energy saving of 87% which leads to significant economic savings when compared to a home with an "F" energy rating.
The project goal was to achieve a sober, elegant façade, with a good thermal and acoustic performance. For that reason, a ventilated facade solution was used that combines two pieces: a smooth piece to creates strips in the slab areas, combined with a grooved piece to runs along the strips generated between them and the sections where the gaps and terraces are located.
ULMA Architectural Solutions collaborated in the project to solve technical details such as setting-outs, joints, and trims to achieve an optimal result. The facade was a success combining thermal and acoustic performance with a variety of colors and textures and was quick to install.
Constructively the building stands out for its white ventilated facade, for the use of geothermal energy and double-flow ventilation as efficient solutions that have enabled the development to receive its "A" Energy Rating.
