Bank of Spain headquarters, Madrid, Spain


Ten years after our first intervention in the building of the Bank of Spain, classified as a Spanish Property of Cultural Interest, the ownership returned to Kalam for the restoration of its 129,000sf stone facade, with granite from Alpedrete, Alconera limestone and Carrara marble, from both the Main Building and the 1975 addition. The restoration plan by Valentín Berriochoa includes: fastening with stainless steel rods and epoxy resins of the cornices and stone modillions, eliminating all rusty anchors that have caused cracking of the stone blocks, micro-stitching and filling cracks and fissures, repointing and patching dimensional losses with epoxy mortars, cleaning, removing efflorescence, applying pre-consolidation and anti-graffiti treatments on the facades, as well as placing overlapping zinc flashings on cornices. We will also restore wrought iron elements of lower floors, courtyard grilles, facade lanterns and zinc merlons.

KALAM, within the framework of the ICEX Next Program, has received support from ICEX and co-financing from the European Regional Development Fund. The purpose of this support is to contribute to the international development of the company.
