Scania Industrial Unit
The owner intends to promote the construction of the new Scania facilities (workshop, shop and offices) located in the city of Maia, about 10 km from the center of Oporto.
The two-storey main building consists of workshop, shop and office, and is 82m long by 30m wide. On the ground floor we find the reception, waiting room, several offices, back-office, storage areas, workshop and sanitary facilities.
The access to the upper floor is made by the main staircase, located at the reception. On the first floor we find four offices, meeting room, meal area, sanitary facilities, locker rooms, archive area, technical zone, warehouse, compressor room and a small auditorium for staff training.
The present proposal has 15 parking spaces for light vehicles and 77 parking spaces for heavy-duty vehicles, there are also 2 places for disabled users.
The building was designed as a unitary ensemble taking account of the specific nature of the materials that comprise it, namely, the lacquered galvanized steel and polycarbonate façade.
Aiming a better integration of the whole, it is proposed a landscape study that functions as a green contour between the confined streets and the intervention itself as the proposal foresees 4406.20m² of green area.
