On 9 August, ‘All About Architecture' subscribers are invited to a free talk organised by InHouse Group 3, at the Cervantes Institute. The talk will be presented by Actiu, a European Manufacturer of equipment for public and work spaces, that was founded 40 years ago by entrepreneur Vincente Berbegal.
The presentation will showcase the Actiu Technology Park completed in 2009. Designed by Tomas Llavador Architects and Engineers who are based in Valencia Spain, the Actiu Technology Park was awarded with a LEED Gold Certificate by the US Green Building Council. The development is self sufficient by virtue of having the largest photovoltaic plant in Europe. By producing five times the energy needed for its production, it prevents emissions of up to 8250 tons of Co2 into the atmosphere.
Don't miss this opportunity to study a successful case-study in Europe, that proves sustainability applied to industry is possible and profitable, and that is the future of our society.
