In the heart of the University of Navarra's Pamplona Campus , between the city's urban area and the 113-hectare park that makes it up, the BIOMA Centre will be a place where visitors will be able to understand its beauty and make a commitment to the planet, the common home that we must all preserve.he future BIOMA Centre aims to place science at the service of nature and human beings.The aim is to understand its beauty and make a commitment to the planet, the common home that we must all conserve.

project-contenidowebbasic-txt2

It will act as a bridge between all the sciences, the university and society. The union of visitors with students, teachers and citizens will bring life to the new space and all the dynamism that a university offers. For this reason, the building will convey the same ideas of exemplarity, commitment and environmental sustainability, from the construction of the building itself to the transmission of the knowledge, becoming a reference for future generations.

Distribution
of the spaces

The total 13,000m2 of the building will be distributed coherently to further the purposes of the centre. 

project-contenidowebbasico-plano

project-contenidowebbasico-spaces-txt

In general terms, one third of the space will be devoted to innovative student learning, one third to research environmental tasks and a third area, the most generous, will be devoted to the contemplation of the natural science collection and the activities knowledge dissemination science collection. 

Access to the building will be via place, giving direct access to a service area: the reception, a shop, a restaurant area and versatile spaces for representation and meetings with companies, institutions and other external entities. In addition, some of the University's central services will also be installed in this new space.

Patxi Mangado,
the architect

project-contenidowebbasic-sleeved1

The project is design by the Navarrese architect Patxi Mangado, who has proposed a sustainable building in harmony with the environment in which it will be built.

The building will be the second signed by Mangado at the University of Navarra's campusafter the one built to house Acunsa's services. graduate in the School of Architecture in 1981, Mangado has twice been awarded the award National Architecture Prize. In 2009, for the Spanish Pavilion at the Zaragoza Expo; and in 2017, for the Palma de Mallorca Conference Centre. Mangado is also an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.

The Building will support the objectives of respect for the environment, energy saving and sustainability, present from the origin of the project, becoming also in this sense a reference for future generations. Its conception, construction system and sunlight control will, to a large extent, avoid the transfer of energy to the exterior and will make it possible to comply with these premises.

It will also contribute to the urban improvement of campus and the city, by converting the existing 7,000 square metre car park into a "green" place .It will also contribute to the urban improvement of meeting and of the city, a space that will promote coexistence and with the city.

Energy saving

01

Improvement of the thermal envelope

Minimum insulation thicknesses, triple glazing in exterior carpentry, reduction of air infiltration losses. These measures translate into a reduction in energy demand.

02

Control of thermal bridges

Continuity between exterior carpentry and façade insulation.

03

Control of sunlight

Balance between annual gains and losses due to solar radiation, designing summer protection for the building, both passive and taking advantage of the natural benefits of campus.

project-reasons-sustainability-2

Plant efficiency and renewable production

01

Reduction of total energy consumption

and minimisation of maintenance through highly efficient air-conditioning, combining complementary systems, plus an "invisible air-conditioning" system based on an underfloor heating/cooling installation.

02

Production of energy from renewable sources

60% of the building's total consumption will be produced with renewable energies. Feasibility studies will be carried out at programs of study to assess the use of geothermal, aerothermal, solar photovoltaic and biomass.

03

Performance monitoring

management energy system that will assess own energy production and consumption.

project-reasons-sustainability-3

Sustainability-Ecology

01

Building life cycle

Choice of materials to be used in the construction of the building so that they are renewable, recyclable and durable and avoid the use of those that are hazardous to health or difficult to recycle. Assessing the "ecological footprint" of the building.

02

Impact on users' health

Ensure that spaces have sufficient natural light, healthy ventilation, limitation ofCO2 concentration, acoustic protection and incorporation of artificial lighting sensitive to the circadian cycle.

03

Natural resources

To reduce consumption and reuse rainwater for irrigation of green areas and to reduce the "heat island" effect through the employment of vegetation.

Leed Certification

The construction of the building will be carried out according to the principles suggested by the Leed Certification in its gold category. LEED, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (Leadership in Energy Efficiency and Sustainable design ) is an international system of assessment developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote sustainable and energy efficient buildings development . It provides confirmation from an independent body (Green Building Certification Institute) that a project has established sustainability strategies aimed at reducing the overall environmental impact of the building. This assessment is based on a points system that is awarded to the building in the most significant categories with respect to its environmental impact.
