EBA will build Beta 2 Building in Bilbao
The Bilbao City Council has awarded EBA Stage II of the refurbishment works of the Beta 2 Building of the Basque city, an industrial building in disuse for its remodelling for teaching purposes by the University of Mondragon.
The building is arranged into a ground floor and three top-level floors, and in this Stage II the facades will be rehabilitated in an integral way and the ground and first floors conditioned. One of the objectives of the project is to maintain the industrial character of the property, both in the outside and the inside.
On the ground floor there will be a large hall that divides the floor into two distinct areas: a dining area with a bar, 2 dining rooms and kitchen and another area for teaching activities with 10 classrooms, 6 meeting rooms and an auditorium area, etc.
The first floor will house 17 classrooms, 1 staff room, library, toilets and secretariat and administration area.
The building, framed under the As Fabrik project, an advanced services and digital economy initiative promoted by the City Council with the help of several local partners, will be used to provide training, organise networking actions, promote start-ups and promote the so-called industry 4.0.
