An efficient, intelligent and sustainable complex

BBVA Headquarters

A smart and very quiet corporate headquarters. Located in Madrid, Spain, the central building, called "La Vela", is BBVA's flagship city building.

A project designed for people

The BBVA City is a complex of 114,000 square meters of offices and services. The total area of the grounds is 252,000 square meters. The headquarters should project strength, quality, efficiency and commitment to the environment, but above all, it should be a project designed to improve people's comfort.

In this project Swegon provided PARASOL comfort modules and GOLD air handling units. Both products are Eurovent certified, which turned out to be one of the decisive factors that helped Swegon win the contract.

With its rotary heat exchangers, integrated control systems and advanced comfort module technology, Swegon was an important contribution to BBVA's commitment to the environment.

A unique and different project

The headquarters of the BBVA bank are a complex of eight buildings. The main building, known as La Vela, is 93 meters long and 19 floors high. Together with this building, the complex is made up of seven other horizontal buildings: Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe, Antarctica, South America and North America.

An example in energy efficiency.

BBVA's city has managed to reduce its energy consumption by between 12% and 15% since its inauguration. This is due, among other things, to the actions carried out in relation to indoor air quality and thermal comfort.

In addition, "La Vela" has already become a new icon in Madrid's skyline.”
