The website Archive of the European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention (AADIPA European Award) has published our refurbishment of the Can Boada Water Tank in Terrassa project.

The project is about the refurbishment of the former water tank of the city, built in 1943 y originally designed by the engineer Ildefonso Sánchez del Río. At a structural level, BIS structures performed a structural diagnosis of the building, detecting oxidation of the steel reinforcement bars of the nerve-beams which form the roof and a loss of the foundation safety. A general cleaning and replacement of the oxidated reinforcement as well as the construction of a pre-stressed concrete ring with post-stressed reinforcement around the perimeter were carried out. At an architectural and heritage level, the lateral access tower was removed and the access was moved to a central tower, as designed by the original author in the first place.
