This building occupies a block and a half at the location of Ensanche de Vallecas in Madrid. 290 flats, store rooms and parking spaces have been built.
The block has five floors, the ground floor plus four floors of housing. Additionally, it has two more levels below ground for parking spaces. Frameworks are made of concrete precast slabs and cast in place concrete slabs. All columns are made of reinforced cast in place concrete.
Perimetre retaining walls are made with a screen of concrete piles, joined to the slabs at every level.
Terrain peculiarities, with a high level of sulphate and gypsum and a high probability of hollows, required a foundation of 50 metre length piles that go through the level with contents of gypsum ‘til the resistant earth.
