We care for the elderly

Comfortable bedrooms are a given
We care for the elderly

There are two current realities that we simply cannot ignore: the increasingly low birth rates and the ageing population.

When I think about old age, I always picture two old people, hand in hand and watching the sunset. I must have seen it in a film or an Pension ? advert, I guess... 

We want the best for them, and that means that care homes are becoming more and more necessary to help those who require specialised assistance 24 hours a day. Sometimes, that is the best solution, for them and for us. 

I want to talk to you today about Campolar Páramo care home, which is located in Santa María del Páramo (Léon, Spain). This centre has space for over 100 people with both single and double rooms available, and a team dedicated to caring for and helping the elderly. 

When architect Jose Manuel Buron got in touch with us, we knew straight away that the residents’ well-being was going to take centre stage. 

So we got to work. 

The building’s exterior is made up of several elements: The facade, woodwork and shelters, which together comprise the outermost layer. Their goal is to protect the building against external elements, such as the cold, heat, rain, wind and humidity. 

Energy efficiency

The goal of energy efficiency is to optimise energy consumption and reduce the associated costs without affecting the residents’ day-to-day comfort. 

Let's take a closer look at it: 

The ventilated facades and excellent insulation help reduce the financial and environmental hit associated with excess energy consumption, creating a building that is capable of saving up to 30% in energy.

In terms of comfort and interior temperature, one of the decisive factors when determining whether or not a building meets efficiency criteria is its U-value, or its thermal transmittance. 

The U-value is the measurement of the heat flow over a period of time and for each surface, transferred through a built structure that can be comprised of one or several layers of material. 

In ventilated facades, insulation is placed inside the air ventilation chamber, on the so-called cold side of the supporting wall, adding continuous insulation along the inside face of the facade, while preventing the creation of thermal bridges in pillars and slabs.

This reduces heat loss (particularly during the cold winter months), and it also decreases the need to use heating. The opposite can be said for the summer months, as the heat doesn't reach the inner layers as easily. 

If you too are looking for a long-lasting, aesthetic and sustainable architectural solution, get in touch with us to find out how we can help you.

Elegant and unique exterior cladding

The STONEO panels used in this centre are from the Stoneo Pure range, which stands out thanks to its natural stone appearance, featuring organic finishes and tones that have a stone texture. We have used colours that, in our opinion, are the perfect combination: black and white. 

Stoneo is an excellent-quality material that is consistent and non-porous, making it very durable and long-lasting. We believe that a building’s durability is vital - the more durable it is, the less resources needed to create a new one. 

Yes. We are the type of company that looks after the tiniest details and that does its bit to lessen its impact on the world each and every day. That’s why we’ve covered every angle  to make life for the residents of Campolar Páramo care home as comfortable and peaceful as possible. 

Because the elderly deserve the best conditions and care. 

And who knows, maybe that elderly couple that is holding hands, who I picture whenever I think of old age, is staring down from one of the centre’s windows...
