The secondary education centre occupies part of the jardines de Emma de Barcelona, adjacent to a social housing complex for the elderly and young people, in addition to other public services such as a nursery school. All of these spaces have occupied the island that has been host to a convent since 1841. Its facilities began to be vacated in 1996 with the transfer of the elderly who used to be cared for in the centre that the same community had in Plaza Tetuán.
GARCIA FAURA became involved in the construction of the Institute with 950 square metres of bi-colour enclosures between opening balcony doors, windows and doors in addition to other two and three-track sliding panels. The set of works comprised the prerequisite of meeting the requirements for acoustic and thermal insulation for an education facility and for the comfort of its users. These objectives were met thanks to the technical performance offered by the aluminium systems selected project.
