Parks: the importance of infrastructures
During the Rebuild Expo and Congress held last week in Barcelona on innovation in the building sector, we had the opportunity to attend a round table about “Remaking industrial spaces”.

Industrial areas or business parks, whatever the name given, concentrate companies close to cities. One key factor that makes them attractive and provides companies of a given territory with the right tools to make them competitive is the quality of their infrastructures. Regarding this issue, different speakers pointed out the too large proportion of old and outdated business parks.
These considerations lead us to remind the high quality of the infrastructures offered by the Barcelona Synchrotron Park.

Let’s point out 4 of them:
  • High capacity and reliability power network, including an own electric station.
  • polygeneration plant and its district heating and cooling system that feeds all plots in the park and offers companies: reduction of initial investment and less physical space to allocate to bulky equipment, reduction of some 20% of associated operating and maintenance costs, flexibility if energy requirements change.
  • 7 telecom operators in the park with their own infrastructure: British Telecom, Telefónica, Orange, Colt, ONO, Ufinet, XOC.
  • 3 Data Centers that give companies the possibility to save their data in a close cloud, an option increasingly valued.
