Team Involved

Conservation consultant: Consurv Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor: Sweett Group Architect: 3D Architects Contractor: ICA Engineers: JH Internacional

Consurv had the honour to work with the once known ‘Madrid-Paris Building’ located at Gran Via, 32. Consurv were engaged as consultants to recommend and approve the most cost effective and valued engineering code of building conduct in order to restore, renovate and re-fit this historic building. As the building had sensitive historical elements and required modern safety requirements, we liaised with the design team from the early design stages. Our consultant expertise saved our client significant euro spend.

We consulted on:

  • Large Scale renovation and re-fit
  • Historical preservation of original detail
  • Failure in Roof coverings
  • Defect analysis in the flooring
  • Inspection of final finish flooring installation
  • Water ingress in windows and Domes
  • Structural Fixings, health and Safety considerations for Shop Fittings
  • Restoration of Historical Brass elevator fittings

History

The nine-storey building was designed by Teodoro de Anasagasti in 1924. This building has very large pilasters that accentuate the vertical. On top of the building is a cupola that is topped with a sculpture of the Ave Fenix. The nine-storey building at number 32 Gran Vía has now been bought up by Pontegadea, an investment company belonging to the Galician fashion tycoon. The Irish clothing retailer Primark is opening a three-floor, 9,000m² flagship store which opened fall-winter 2015. 

In 1910, King Alfonso XIII ordered the demolition of some of the buildings between Plaza de España and Plaza de Cibeles, the purpose was to transform the Gran Vía, in a commercial and entertainment epicentre of Madrid and one of the most unique places. Madrid's most famous avenue, Gran Vía, was sliced through old Madrid in the early 20th century to create a grand avenue for the capital of Spain, thus giving way for the architects of the time to design sumptuous buildings along the sides of the Avenue. The result is a mesmerising collection of highly ornate buildings with striking Belle Epoque and Art Déco features.
