Sant Boi de Llobregat is a municipality in the Baix Llobregat, crossing the river from our offices in Sant Feliu de Llobregat. We could walk along the new flood bridge that they have built in Sant Vicenç dels Horts. No. Just kidding, it’s 8 km and we are lazy architects. If you need to consult our ITE rates in Sant Boi de Llobregat or ask us a question, click here a> and fill in the contact form, we will be doing the inspection of your building shortly.
The inspection is simple because our technician goes by car, but the combination from Sant Feliu is complicated. Although Sant Boi is a city of the first metropolitan crown and is close to St Feliu it would take a long time by public transport. As it is a building of 32, more than 20 entities (adding premises and homes) make the technical inspection visit on 2 separate days. All in
The environment and background
The vertical structure is made of load-bearing walls. Can it be a 5-storey floor with load-bearing walls? of course yes, in Barcelona we have come across buildings of 5 and up to 8 floors (the latter only once) built with a load-bearing wall and also with a type of brick called “tochana” which is a brick that is now not We would use it as a load element (the so-called “gero” is used in Catalonia, which has perforations but is not hollow
The envelope is made of a single 15 cm sheet of perforated brick (externally plastered with cement mortar). Not having an air chamber or thermal insulation could cause condensation although in this building, probably due to the good orientation to the sun (it is more usual to find interior condensation on facades on the north faces …) Although surely a good facade insulation would make the inhabitants of the building saved good money on heating.
The facilities were in very good condition, it shows that the building is cared for here. Even the cables from the terrace were on stools!
