SummaryNew primary health care centre developed under the European project SARA (Sustainable Architecture Applied to Replicable Public Access Buildings), the objective of which is to design and build demonstration sustainable public buildings that are economically feasible, highly energy efficient and replicable at large scale in Europe. The building has been conceived to be responsive to seasonal comfort requirements and at the same time to contribute to the reduction of energy costs. To that aim, the building uses materials with low environmental impact, efficient systems and renewable technologies for using solar energy (photovoltaics and solar thermal) and local water resources. It also includes a Building Management System with modular structure, with the possibility of user access and visualization of data remotely for control and monitoring.
