won the competition for the installation of pergolas for stalls at the Sant

technical solution proposed by IASO was the winner of the contest.
municipal market in Barcelona will be reborn, becoming the most modern market
in the city but without losing its original 1882 identity.
pergolas will be installed for all the stalls on the market, encompassing the
2,062m² of the four streets that surround the Sant Antoni market: Urgell,
Tamarit, Manso and Comte Borrell. The technical solution provided by IASO is
the integrated channelling of rain water and downpipes inside the pillars of
the galvanized steel structure. The roofs will be fixed, adjustable or
retractable slats depending on the area in which the pergola is located. In the
case of retractable slats, the mechanism for opening and closing the slats can
be activated via radio, centrally from the market, so that the stalls do not
block the view. In addition, it will close automatically in case of rain. All
the stalls will be protected from the wind and rain thanks to the installation
of vertical manual curtains that will descend from the ceiling of the
structure. The pergolas will be complemented with two types of white lighting,
the Sunday market and the night market.
This is one
of the largest projects carried out by the Outdoor Solutions division of IASO.
The reform of the market will represent an emblematic work for Barcelona,
taking advantage of the fact that the City Council is promoting the
rehabilitation of the city's markets as another tourist attraction.
will be carried out in five phases and the first phase is projected to be
completed on March 12, which will see Tamarit Street covered. On May 2, the
market will be inaugurated by the Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau.
