Magtel’s Infrastructures Division has completed the refurbishment of house number six of the Colonia San José located on the Rabanales Campus of the University of Cordoba (UCO).
In its place, the headquarters of the Institute of Fine Chemistry and Nanochemistry has been installed, bringing together all the scientific material and equipment available to the fifteen research groups that make up the Institute.
This project is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It has been built on a historic building in which the former teachers of the Universidad Laboral used to live. The existing structure has been maintained, adapting the building to current regulations and to its new use.
The planned building has an envelope suitable for limiting the energy demand necessary to achieve thermal comfort depending on the climate of the city of Cordoba, the intended use and the summer and winter seasonal regime. In particular, the treatment of thermal bridges has been taken into account in order to limit heat loss or gain and to avoid hygrothermal problems in the bridges.
