CITIES AND COMPLEX FACILITIES

Cities, and the buildings that compose them, have to face up to the challenges of rapid urban growth. Cities and buildings organise the territory, structure the landscape and determine the future of our societies through their multiple connections and the convergence of many and varied kinds of knowledge.

The complexity of these processes and challenges calls for an innovative approach in thinking in order to take informed decisions and create urban environments that are healthier, safer and inclusive. To create a better world.

For more than 30 years Pinearq has been developing key knowledge for the construction of efficient, habitable and sustainable environments; as a result we have accumulated solid international experience in the creative development of spaces for health. We develop and manage projects and strategies for new infrastructures and urban developments to integrate each component of the smart city through a unique vision of design.

Our work is the result of efficient design, sensitive to the setting and integrating the latest developments in the intelligent management of services, security, water, energy, waste and environmental impact.

We are always trying to enhance that experience by adding new tools which can improve our processes in design, construction and management. That is why we constantly collaborate with other organisations in promoting technology and innovative services for buildings and cities.

This is the channel through which we explore new ideas and relationships in order to develop our knowledge, improve our services and maximise our impact.

Here, we collect the review articles, research and innovation projects that we develop at Pinearq.

HOW TO INCREASE BED CAPACITY TO ADDRESS THE COVID-19?

Arup, combining the multidisciplinary and international experience together with Pinearq's hospital design experience, has created CareBox; a guide that addresses the global need for more beds, with scalable, modular, and fast-building solutions that can be transported, deployed and applied to provide additional capacity in a range of specific environments, from existing healthcare campuses to independent facilities.

THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

Currently, no one is surprised to see the design difference between a day-care centre and an institute but, until recently, the general hospital design was extended to child hospitalization without any difference. Spaces for children and adolescents must adapt to them and their families, from the concepts of humanization and pediatrization of spaces. In Pinearq, we are highlighting these ideas in the development of the new Pediatric Cancer Center of the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital.
