COAC RENOVATES SIX OF ITS BRANCH OFFICES AS PART OF THE HERITAGE PLAN
All the renovation work carried out as part of the Heritage Plan to transform six of the COAC’s eleven regional office buildings around Catalonia is expected to be completed during the course of 2022.
A budget of €3,877,500 has been allocated to adapt the spaces, update the facilities, improve building accessibility and health and renovate the facades and roofs at its sites in Girona, Tarragona, Lleida, La Seu d’Urgell, Vic and Barcelona, in accordance with the requirements identified in a previous technical report.
Following a ten year period of forced inactivity due to the economic crisis, the Heritage Plan, approved by the General Assembly in May 2018, has enabled the COAC to invest resources in the renovation and renewal of its buildings, an essential action both in terms of their upkeep and fulfilling a duty of care with regard to heritage preservation.
Promoting a culture of renovation
Thus, in a few key years of promoting urban renewal and following the activation of the NextGenerationEU funds, the COAC aims to promote its building rehabilitation programme as a pedagogical exercise for society, in order to adapt buildings and workspaces to the needs of the twenty-first century and to meet the challenges of sustainable architecture and improve the well-being and health of citizens.
