Hospital Terrassa and Hospital Taulí (Barcelona, Spain)

The main objectives of the CSPT-Terrassa when we talk about environment is to reduce energy consumption without losing comfort for users of the different centers. The project aims to retrofit a hospital district with efficient strategies, which are identified as not energy efficient. Passive design strategies, heating & cooling sources and integration of renewables for building envelope is examining.
