Ultra High Voltage Laboratory
The building is destined for a Laboratory of Ultra High Voltage, which implies the construction of an open space warehouse, 57 m long, 30 m wide and 27 m high on the inside, which defines a Faraday Cage needed for the precision of the measurements carried out within.
One of a kind in Spain, this laboratory has few rivals worldwide
It is the only laboratory of this kind in Spain, and one of the few that exist worldwide.The main warehouse can be divided into three separate areas, adequate for the completion of impact and resonant tests and preci-sion measurements. Annexed to the main area there is a block with views of the testing area which has two control/reception rooms, a meeting room and a presentations room with capacity for 60 people.This laboratory intends to represent ARTECHE’s commitment to innovation, as shown by the polished metal façade which vibrates and swerves along its perimeter, allowing for the volume to blend in with its surroundings.
