Helios is an office complex located in Madrid, in one of the most consolidated tertiary areas of the capital, and consists of two buildings, with seven and eight floors each, linked by a covered pedestrian crossing.
Arup has provided a range of experience in structural engineering, façades, acoustics and sustainability in the drafting of this project and in the technical assistance during construction.
Solving the new challenges
The main challenge of Arup has been to solve the architectural proposal of large diaphanous and cantilevered spaces, offering a solution that facilitates the construction process.
During the construction of this innovative business complex, our services include the sustainability study to ensure compliance with the requirements in order to obtain the Platinum LEED classification.
In addition to on-site technical assistance, Arup has also carried out a study to optimize the technical performance of the enclosure, such as the evaluation and design of mechanical noise control in the indoor environment.
