LEED BD+C: New Construction v3 - LEED 2009

Pabellon Sant Salvador Hosp. Sant Pau

Recinte del Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau
Barcelona, 08025

LEED Gold 2017

This project aims to carry out rehabilitation and adaptation actions inside the pavilion of San Salvador for use as part of the museum tour that follows the Modernista Hospital Santa Creu i Sant Pau. Prior to receiving LEED Gold the project team had outlined the following actions:

  • New construction: Adaptation, both internal distribution and facilities, in order to use the building as part of the museum tour for The Modernist Center. To achieve this, rebuild the original stairs, build a new flight of stairs and two new lifts, new bathroom spaces for men and women, as well as space for facilities and cleaning.
  • Interventions of Renovation: Rehabilitation and reconstruction of ornamental lining on both walls and ceilings, to achieve the original look of the building.
  • Structural interventions: Reinforcement of walls, vaults and arches, as well as opening holes to achieve the structural elements that can withstand pressure from the demands of new use.
  • New facility: New construction of facilities to meet basic technical building code, as well as the demands of the new museum use.
  • The building must achieve LEED certification, so the project should incorporate many eco-friendly measures.

Energy improvement measures that have been implemented in the building are:

  1. Installing thermal insulation (to reduce energy consumption in heating and cooling) in floor under cover and interior floors of the building, including basement, as part of the floor heating system.
  2. Installation of a Geothermal Source Heat Pump with an 5.58 COP and 5.6 EER, and optimal energy performance to partial load.
  3. Installing heat recovery ventilation systems with an efficiencies of 68.8 percent for heating and 66.2 percent for cooling.
  4. Incorporation of free cooling, a method of using low external air temperatures to chill water for industrial processes or air conditioning
  5. Use of LED lights throughout the building.
  6. Installation of artificial lighting control based on the existing natural lighting (daylights) in most areas of the building and occupancy (occupancy sensors).
  7. Other sustainability achievements are:

    • Use of recovered and regional materials
    • Saving on water consumption
    • Minimizing construction waste
    • Natural lighting
