The protagonist of this project is the Hall of Regins, a monument that stands out for its southern facade, originally built in the 17th century XVII, which will be recovered for reveal a spectacular public space: the new atrium of the Prado Campus.

Through a delicate intervention to open of the gaps of the facade, daylight will pass through this space, reaching the Hall of Reigns again, which also recovers its original relationship with the landscape. Above the facade, on the third floor, a new spacious and versatile showroom will be available.

The new roof will make it possible to provide this space with overhead light controlled, with a construction that will cater to the sustainability criteria. This new placement frees the ground floor, the 'heart' of the new building, which will have exhibition and recreational spaces, where the urban layout will penetrate into the building through the atrium, reconnecting its north and south sides. The latter holds the new main entrance, located in a reception space will be generated there that collects the flow of visitors from the Villanueva building.

AVO I provides a solution both to the growing traffic problem, and the lacking North-South connection in Santiago de Chile, decongesting a high-transit zone, reducing travel times, both noise and air pollution, and fuel consumption, as most of the traffic that would formerly run on the surface now does in a tunnel.

Rafael Gómez del Río, CEO of Sacyr Concesiones highlighted the merit of all involved in this mega-project, which spans 9 km, traverses five communes, making it one of the largest infrastructure projects in Latin America, that will benefit more than 750,000 people.

Sacyr Concesiones will participate in the management of AVO I for a maximum term of 45 years, and Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures was involved in the execution of the underground, surface, and landscaping works, all throughout the communes of Recoleta, Huechuraba, Vitacura, Las Condes and La Reina.

AVO I is one of the most relevant infrastructures in Chile and in Sacyr’s portfolio, with an approximate investment of US$ 1 billion and a revenue portfolio worth more than US$4.3 billion.

Sustainability and innovation

During construction, 70% of the materials from excavations (soil and rocks) were reutilized in the same project, and more than 1,300 tons of steel were recycled.

AVO I developed this highway as a sustainable infrastructure and is the only one in Chile operating 100% on green energy.

One of the most relevant milestones is the installation in tunnels of the Iohnic lighting system, a technology developed and registered under Sacyr, consisting of an innovative system based on LED tech, which allows to minimize power consumption and 100% uniform lighting. This system can reduce power consumption by 66%, or 153 tons of CO2 per year.

In turn, AVO I transformed Parque Vespucio, which spans from Vitacura commune to La Reina commune, by incorporating a 9.05 km bike lane, and creating spaces for leisure and sports.

In addition, AVO I received the “Declaración de Valor Circular” Award as a recognition from Aceros AZA for recycling 2,307 tons of scrapped materials, which translates into more materials to produce sustainable steel, reducing the energy (8,181 MWh) and water (3,056 m³) consumption, and CO2 emissions (2,700 CO2eq).

It covers 32 medical specialties and has 42 consulting rooms and 8 operating rooms. They are all fitted with the very latest medical equipment.

It is also the first public hospital to incorporate a seismic isolation system, which ensures it can continue to operate as normal even in the event of an earthquake.

The No. 3 Line on the Guadalajara Light Railway network makes an outstanding contribution to Mexico’s transport and mobility sector. This project develops a more efficient system, which benefits passengers. This new line allows them to travel to the historic districts of Guadalajara, Zapopan and Tlaquepaque in a single journey, connecting central areas to the outskirts of the city.

It is estimated that this line carries 233,000 passengers every day, who can now save 40 minutes on their journey time. The line runs over 21.5 km and includes 18 stops, including 13 elevated (on 2 viaducts) and 5 underground stations.

This project is looking to the mobility of the future, reducing vehicular journeys, minimizing pollution, and offering affordable, safe, and efficient transportation to the people of Guadalajara. And not just this: the new line also opens up new economic opportunities for the outskirts of the city.
