At a staggering 236 meters, it is the third tallest skyscraper in Spain and one of the 200 tallest buildings in the world. The Torre Sacyr building, located in the Cuatro Torres Business Area in Madrid, was designed and built in accordance with stringent sustainability and eco-efficiency criteria. Its ventilated double-skin facade allows for major energy savings to be made and facilitates maintenance tasks without interfering with the work going on in the office spaces.
The building - standing 64 storeys high, with 6 below ground and 58 above - has two uses: hotel (up to the 34th floor) and offices. This characteristic posed additional challenges during the construction process, since different installations were required on different floors depending on their use (electricity, gas, telecomms, fire safety and sanitation, among other aspects).
