What exactly is Sustainable Construction? At ACCIONA, we design construction systems for a new model of energy efficient building. To do so, we have a specialized R&D center that follows different lines of research that pursue the development of nano-materials and cutting-edge materials, new construction processes and energy efficient building. The most outstanding example is the ACCIONA Solar head offices in Navarre, a zero emissions building. This building consumes 52% less energy than a similar conventional one thanks to the application of a broad range of energy efficient measures, and covers 48% of its energy needs via PV solar (electricity), solar thermal and biodiesel (HVAC).
ACCIONA, as part of the Nexus Infrastructure consortium signed contracts with the Queensland Government. The Nexus consortium includes ACCIONA, Ferrovial, Plenary Group and Transfield Services, and will design construct, finance, operate and maintain the 41km highway that will bypass the city of Toowoomba and improve traffic conditions and road safety in the region. In particular reducing the number of heavy vehicles travelling through Toowoomba’s city centre achieving contractual close for the delivery of the A$1.6 billion Toowoomba Second Range Crossing.
