The Convention Center is one of the most important works done in the last years in the City of Buenos Aires. It has a total capacity of approximately 5,000 people, with a plenary room and an auxiliary room, offices, meeting rooms and a 1600 m² lobby. It consists of three underground levels to extend the landscape of the property between the University, Faculty of Law, and Thays Park. In total, it has an outdoor park of 18 thousand square meters.
In addition to preserving green space and old trees, the Center has a strong focus on sustainability, thanks to big windows and LED lighting to save energy, rainwater collection and solar panels.
Even the HVAC system has been designed in a highly sustainable way. As the building is fully underground, it is not affected by external thermal loads during the day. Furthermore, the green covering provides insulation on the roof from solar radiation, keeping internal temperature stable all year round.
To guarantee the best internal comfort even during the most crowded events, the HVAC plant designer has conceived an air conditioning system based on Climaveneta branded units: 1 ERACS2-Q/CA 2222 multi-purpose heat pump and 1 FOCS2/K 6903 chiller to produce hot and cold water for the 11 Wizard Air Handling Units.
