The move is in line with the building's commitment to the environment; it will gradually install sockets throughout its parking garage in response to demand.

The system enables a vehicle battery to be fully recharged in 6-8 hours. The new power sockets installed in Torre Picasso will be compatible with all vehicle brands and models.

FCC owns Torre Picasso, which has 121,000 square metres of floor space. The building is a landmark in Madrid. Its high-tech design makes it one of the most comfortable, most efficient and safest smart buildings in Europe.

Standing 157 metres tall, Torre Picasso has 43 floors above grade. It has been a symbol of modern Madrid since its inauguration in 1989, and it is now the first skyscraper in Madrid to offer recharging facilities for electricity vehicles (at no cost in the initial phase).

Torre Picasso is engaged in an ongoing process of upgrading its facilities and of implementing new services for its clients. It is strongly committed to sustainable development and the environment based on strict compliance with the corresponding legislation in all areas of action under its ISO 14001-certified Environmental Management System. Occupancy was practically 100% in 2009.
