Among several interventions, the main work was to arise a new building substituting an old one, providing a better connection and integration among all the services. According to urban regulations, the new building had to maintain the same area aboveground level of the demolished one, but its area could be increased underground with two cellars for storage rooms, parking places and facilities as a central-court of the Clinic.
In order to achieve these objectives, during the work, there were several shipments of uses, new ones were included, the internal circulation was markedly improved, and almost all the facilities were renewed. In addition, constructions were improved as long as the insulation and air tightness conditions of the building, adapting it to current standards.
