The Bilbilita City Council has submitted to the Next Generation calls for European funds the projects to rehabilitate the Claretians building and the municipal pavilion.

The proposal is referred to the Aid Program for Local Entities for the Rehabilitation of Public Buildings (PIRED) convened by the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda within the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan. It is a program with two financing lines in which the integral rehabilitation of the Capitol Theater has already been requested.

“They are emblematic buildings for the citizenry due to the high level of social use they have in the cultural and sports spheres,” explains the Councilor for Urban Development, José Manuel Gimeno, who adds that “the rehabilitation that we plan in both supposes a very considerable improvement of its conditions and a key energy saving, benefiting the users and constituting a high economic saving for the public coffers”.

For its part, the Claretians Building, located on Fernndez Ardavn Street and dedicated to associations, dates from 1964. In recent years it has received various investments to adapt an area for the creation of a Municipal Shelter, a new assembly hall and the carpentry and lighting of some areas have been renewed.

However, with this project proposed by the Calatayud City Council, the building will undergo a comprehensive transformation that will allow energy savings of 79%. In this way, it is planned to replace the diesel boiler with a biomass one and the asbestos-cement roof with a sandwich panel, in addition to changing the carpentry work, installing photovoltaic panels for self-consumption, changing electric accumulators for aerothermal energy, incorporating remote energy management , treat damp or control access, among other measures. The total cost of the intervention is 739,061 euros, the amount requested from European funds.

In the case of the municipal sports center, the proposal to the PIRED proposes the change of the sheet metal roof, the replacement of the carpentry, the renovation of the emergency exit doors, a new air conditioning system, the change of lighting to LED with the installation of sensors for its automation, new secondary electricity meters, photovoltaic panels, a treatment for humidity and the improvement of access control. The investment stands at 819,303 euros, of which 693,807 euros are requested.
