DKV headquarters, Saragossa
DKV’s new head office in Saragossa is located in the South Tower of the World Trade Center Zaragoza, a nine-storey building designed by Arquitectura y Urbanismo Aranaz Estudio and Estudio López Merino and associates in 1998 and acquired by DKV in April 2013. Renovation of the building, on which the insurance company spent ¬7.3 million, followed the guidelines laid down by the latest building certificates. The aim was to make the new headquarters an example of sustainability, efficiency and accessibility and to provide the firm with the best possible business premises. To achieve these goals, a team of specialists from various firms -DKV, Aguirre Newman Arquitectura, DNV, ARC BCN and ECODES- worked together to define the specifications and meet the requirements set by the various certificates. This joint effort ran from initial project design through to completion and many of the criteria are now an integral part of the company’s day-to-day operation.
