10 landmark architectural works with the Sacyr seal

We share some of our most iconic construction and rehabilitation projects.

We are passionate about challenges. We specialize in the construction of unique and complex infrastructures. We participate in projects that are challenging from several angles, contributing all of our experience, creativity, and enthusiasm. Want an example? Keep reading.

Torre Australis: a building that breaks the mold

This 214-unit residential complex is noteworthy for its innovative curvilinear design, its materials, and its sustainability. It features a rooftop pool (23rd floor) and it caused a sensation at Open House Madrid 2020, an event celebrated as part of Architecture Week in the capital. 

 

Torre Sacyr: from Madrid to the sky

At a height of 236 meters, this building, part of the Cuatro Torres Business Complex, is one of the tallest in Spain. It spans more than 70,000 m2 above and below ground, and includes offices, a hotel, and a restaurant. Designed by architects Carlos Rubio Carvajal and Enrique Álvarez-Sala Walter, its glass and metal construction follows meticulous criteria of sustainability and eco-efficiency.  

 

Panama Canal expansion: the challenge of the century

In 2016, we completed this colossal project with considerable impact on international trade. We opened a new route, parallel to the existing one, doubling the canal’s capacity and shortening transit times. This enormous project required tremendous innovation, determination and hard work.

 

Pumarejo bridge: the 'Colossus of the Caribbean'

Located in Barranquilla (Colombia), this bridge is one of our most prominent projects in Latin America. Its 2,173 x 38.1-meter deck is one challenge we are particularly proud of, achieved through the application of innovative construction methods.

 

CosmoCaixa: the Barcelona Science Museum

This building from 1904 reopened its doors 100 years after its initial construction following a painstaking rehabilitation process. This modernist structure, now a symphony of glass and steel, offers users unique experiences, like a +1,000 m² replica of a flooded Brazilian rainforest.

 

Mercado Sant Antoni: a modern jewel 

Built in 1882, the Sant Antoni market is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After eight years of renovation, the market has an additional 37,000 m2 distributed over four underground floors. The building incorporates the architectural ruins of the San Antonio bastion and the 1st century C.E. Roman road, Via Augusta. It is the recipient of several awards, including the III ACHE Engineering Award (from the Spanish Association of Structural Engineering).

 

Palacio de la Aduana: the fortress that radiates art

We refurbished this 18th c. building to house the Malaga Museum’s Fine Arts and Archeology collections. This ambitious renovation project expanded the exhibition space by nearly 3,000 m2 distributed over two floors.

 

Casa de la Música: in the heart of Porto

This multipurpose space features futuristic reinforced concrete architecture. This is the first project in which we used BIM, Building Information Modelingtechnology, which mimics the actual construction process. This technology uses parametric software to model structures in 3-D and make simulations in 4-D (time), 5-D (cost), and 6-D (energy sustainability).

 

Basílica de Fátima: a modern place of worship

The Holy Trinity Church in Fátima is one more challenge met. This landmark construction, within the Fatima sanctuary enclosure, is a multipurpose space with an 8,800-seat capacity. In 2009, it won the IABSE (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering) award, a recognition granted to only the most innovative and creative works.

 

The Seville Shipyards: a true challenge

This building is considered the city’s civic cathedral. The rehabilitation project, with an investment of 16 million euros, will convert the old medieval shipyard into a cultural center. Its opening is slated for 2022 to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the globe.
