La Finca is one of the most exclusive and safe residential complexes in Spain, next to the traditional areas of La Moraleja or Puerta del Hierro in the capital. The enclave is located in Pozuelo de Alarcón, framed between the areas of Somosaguas Sur, Prado de Somosaguas and M-40, and comprises an area equivalent to 400 football fields. The security and exclusivity of this great urbanization are the main attractions for celebrities and members of the economic elite have chosen this place to establish their homes, in homes with prices ranging from 1.5 to 12 million euros.
Design and Exclusivity Luxury Family Homes
Secin Group carried out the execution of the group of villas designed by the famous architectural firm A-CERO and promoted by PROCINSA. In this case, he was in charge of all the execution of the project, designing the structural systems that could be fused with the architecture.
The residences are established on a garage, with a free light of more than 30 m, and a curved perimeter corridor without windows and with overhead light. The roof of the garage is 30 x 13 m. It seems insurmountable with a light and economic structure, but if we turn the defect into virtue, we will have a curved wall of more than 30 m that supports a residence plant and its roof. The living area is, in turn, the roof of the garage with 13 m of free width.
This beam or wall (curved) of 25 cm in thickness and that supports on screens at its ends allows: more than 30 m of free light for the entrance of vehicles at the bottom; also supporting the roof of this garage consisting of alveolar plates 13 m long that support the lower part of this wall. In the upper part also supports a floor that is the living area, being the height of this large beam the height corresponding to a plant.
The total load that supports this wall is more than 400 tons, in addition to its own weight. Especially delicate was the union of the alveolar plates of the roof of the garage by the lower part of this beam, because without interrupting the alveolar plate, they flew as a marquee a variable light from 1 m to 5 m (with the consequent difficulty of unifying pointed deformations). It was possible to solve by means of a metallic beam run by the inferior face of the curved wall and hung of this one with metallic braces. Between the bracket and the straps the necessary gap was formed to allow the plates to pass.
A large structure of townhouses
On the other hand, it also executed a set of semi-detached houses, which consist of a basement, a ground floor in two heights, access floor and hall floor; high floor also on two levels: floor bedrooms, master bedroom floor and deck.
The structural solution considered for them presents reinforced concrete slab of thickness 27 cm in the two levels of the ground floor area as a garage roof. In both levels of the upper floor, the solution adopted shows reticular forging of 25 + 5/82 × 82 of concrete blocks and nerve width of 12 cm.
The roof is resolved by a metal structure based on frames, beams and belts on which the sandwich panel rests.
All this supported by reinforced concrete pillars, except for some metallic tubular profile on the roof; transmitting the loads to the foundation, which is solved by basement wall of alveolar plates and foundation slab.
