IBERDROLA CAMPUS: AN INTERNATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE
1 main hall (340 seats)
The main hall can seat 340 people and has been specially designed for amplified voice activities such as conferences or audiovisual presentations. The side glazed facade is one of the most outstanding elements in its design, in which the intensity of light can be adjusted with rotating panels, either fully closing the facade or showing the natural environment surrounding the hall.
15 lecture halls (386 seats)
The Campus has nine multi-purpose lecture halls of different sizes, with a total capacity for 174 people. They can seat from 12 to 46 people and can be used for different activities. In addition, there are six lecture halls with a 24 to 68 seat capacity. The total capacity of these six lecture halls is 212 seats.
12 meeting rooms (96 seats)
The Campus has 12 meeting rooms with an eight-seat capacity each, for a total capacity of 96 people.
Hotel - Hall of residence (106 rooms)
The Campus' Hotel - Hall of Residence has 106 rooms (four of them adapted for the disabled and distributed between the first and second floors), and offers the services and style of a 4-star hotel.

A CAMPUS DESIGNED WITH ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN MIND
The Campus is made up of a set of functional, sustainable and independent buildings, which are interconnected with a top roof structure that "flies" over the buildings. Such a roofing structure, or canopy, generates a bio-climate inside, reducing the cold and hot water production for cooling and heating the buildings, as it minimises the thermal load generated on the façades. In addition, it results in a significant reduction in the atmospheric emissions of CO2.
The Campus also implements specific measures to reduce the use of water. A system has been established to collect rainwater, which will be used for watering and hosing the complex, as well as a system that collects and treats the grey water from the hall of residence for its sanitary use. Likewise, the complex has different areas with solar thermal and photovoltaic energy panels to generate clean energy.
These sustainability innovations have earned the Campus the LEED Gold 2009 [PDF] certification, which is awarded by the U. S. Green Building Council. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and recognises the most healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green structures.
