On June 2nd 2016 was inaugurated in Ávila the brand new Decathlon store, which is part of the new commercial area “Las Moruchas” alongside with Worten and Burger King. José Luis Rivas, Ávila’s mayor, and Decathlon directors were present for the event.
In collaboration with its partner Arellano Arquitectos, GMD Solutions has carried out the store adaptation projects as well as the opening license for the 1.500m2 building. Our company also lead the construction management for the following installations: low voltage, fire protection, lighting, CCTV and intrusion
It is important to point out that the French brand is giving importance to the energy sustainability by installing LEDs in the whole store: 256 lineal lights (210 of 62W and 46 of 42W) in the selling area and 15W downlights in the technical and staff rooms. The use of LED will permit a 36% savings on the lighting bill compared to the more traditional fluorescent technology.
This is the third project lead by GMD Solutions for Decathlon. The first two were the building of the Decathlon Ciudad Realand the increase of the Collado Villalba (Madrid) store footage. Moreover, GMD Solutions is currently working on the expansion of the Decathlon Santiago de Compostela.
