In Logispark World we are ready to implement the Viapark project in Arroyo de la Encomienda, the start of construction is planned for the end of this year 2010. Particularly, it is a commercial park where a worldwide well-known sporting goods sale enterprise will establish. The location is highly strategic:

- Optimal access, next to the A62 which links Valladolid with Salamanca
- 10 minutes from Valladolid
- 15 minutes from the A6 linking Madrid with Leon
- Less than two hours from Madrid and León
Close to ths park, there is another one to be developed in a second phase, with date to be determined. The lot has a 260m frontline leading to the street of access and an approximate total area of 18.000m2. In a first approach we have considered the possibility of building a hotel with associated facilities like parking area, dining area and commercial area with small and medium shops (700 to 1.400 m2 according to customers needs).

The project considers a surface of 9.500m2 for the sales area on the ground floor with a considerable height, and a 20.000m2 exterior parking has been planned, on ground level and uncovered. Other important design features of the project are detailed below.

The final platform levels of the different areas of the project have been studied for an optimized final balance of earthmoving works (earth output - earth input), thereby minimizing costs of earth transportation to dump or for embankment. The soil stabilization in areas of level changes is done either by battering with natural slope in some cases or with concrete walls in others.

The foundations are continuous under exterior reinforced concrete walls. The structure of the building has an isolated footings foundation, with a bracing perimeter beam, which appart from providing rigidity to the whole, will work as support for the precast concrete panels of the facade, where these have to be installed. Foundations are also to be considered in particular areas, for example, in the loading dock area.

The sewage will be separated, distinguishing between sewage and stormwater. The system chosen to gather and evacuate stormwater from the roof is the "full flow" type; experience shows us that for projects of this type, this system optimizes space, due to the number of necessary pipes is quite low and reduces dramatically the risk of saturating channels in case of extreme rainfall. This system allows the use of smaller pipe diameters in comparison to traditional systems, because no air is trapped inside allowing the full section to work 100%, at the same time, the "full flow" system allows a faster water evacuation in comparison to the traditional gravity systems.

The structure is geometrically defined by a grid with large spans ranging from 10 to 14m, depending on the zone and the direction. This grid allows us a proper distribution of shelves and corridors for the final configuration of the commercial area.

The façades of the buildings are focused on an innovative image, of dynamism and activity, avoiding any chaotic and disorganized environment. Therefore in the design of the façades different materials are used, such as a curtain wall to provide a better use of natural light, concrete panels, trespa ... The perfect execution of the joints between different materials and the use of few and optimal systems and materials is what gives buildings a plus of quality in comparison to other commercial parks in the area. 

The roof system chosen is the deck type, consisting of structural support, metal sheeting, insulation rigid panels, first waterproof layer and a second waterproof layer (autoprotected). A support system for the future implementation of a photovoltaic installation should be build.

The complex also offers retail and offices area in the same building. The distribution of this area is characterized by optimizing routes, minimizing the ones of the staff, and full coherence with the distribution and location of the technical rooms, where the connections with the main supplies are (energy, water, etc.). The finishing of the whole area is characterized by its suitability for use of the customer.

The floor, which is essential in life and functionality of the building has been designed within the parameters of high flatness and traffic. In the interior of the building a reinforced concrete slab will be build by a laser paver giving a final hard finishing. It will focus on hot spots such as the area of doors and entrances, where steel elements have to be placed, or expansion joints and other special transition points. Outside, in areas where movement of heavy trucks is expected, asphalt paving has to be specific for each area in terms of its use, in order to avoid problems on the floors caused by heavy truck wheels rolling over them.

Concerning to facilities, apart from the standards of the Technical Building Code to implement for a building of these characteristics, it is expected to install a solar garden in the roof of the building, giving an additional benefit to the developer/investor, and adapting the building to new environmental trends, to achieve "green" certificacions, like for example in the European Green Building programme.

Finally, regarding the interior urbanization of the plot, special care has been taken as far as road traffic is concerned, clearly marked parking areas and its lanes, entrances to and exits from the park, loading and unloading area for trucks and pedestrian walkways that lead the client into the building and the future second part of the project. All outdoor furniture is part of the Viapark concept image that the company has been developing over the last decade, so that both the lamp posts, seats and trees and green areas have been studied carefully. The facilities in the whole urbanization are designed and planned for maximum optimization and management.
