Endesa Headquarters Façades

Madrid (Spain) - 2003

The headquarters of Endesa, located in el Campo de las Naciones de Madrid. The complex is formed by two independent buildings, joined between them by a covered atrium that houses the entrance security services, the elevators and a footbridge that offer access to the different levels, in addition to playing a fundamental role in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning of the building.

At one of the extremes of the atrium, the building entrance facade can be found – a 25m wide, 24m tall glazed surface determined with 12mm thick tempered monolithic glass sheets, pointed-fixed in four places with stainless steel PUNTpart SP ball-and-socket joints AISI-316 and PUNTpart RM spiders.

The structure of the facade is composed of three large reticulate steel pillars suspended from the metallic roof structure as well as from a framework of stressed stainless steel that, distributed in crosses contained in different horizontal and vertical planes, are capable of transferring the wind load as well as its own weight to the pillars.
