The road accesses project is part of the project of the New Containers Terminal of the Barcelona Port. The study compiles all the existing information of the different works carried out till the date and related to the accessibility to the south extension of the port. Once all the information was compiled, all the future actions were analyzed and a proposal to incorporate them was developed. It was chosen the solution considered the most adequate from a technical, economic and operational point of view. The new roads will allow the access to the future Tercat Terminal. Two road junctions, connected through the Prat Road, are designed. The section is formed by a rail yard that provides service to the Tercat Terminal and a 3+3 rail axis and a rail service branch line for Decathlon. The complexity of this project is the execution of the different phases of the road and rail layout, taking into account the structures that have to be designed to serve the future containers terminal of the Barcelona Port. The final purpose is the drafting of the detailed phase 1 design of the new accesses works to the south extension of the Barcelona Port, in accordance with the specifications of the existing documents.

The Arraijanal Marina implies the construction of a large complex of residential developments, sports and commerce buildings and hospitality constructions in a coastal parcel of approximately 50 Ha, close to Malaga airport. The complex includes 1,500 homes and 200 commercial premises associated to what will be the biggest sport harbor of Costa del Sol, with almost 1000 berths. The whole complex represents a global investment of 120.2 million euros, out of which 24 are direct for the docks work, the accesses creation and building constructions, which constitute the Esteyco designs for the project. Some of the more complicated areas for the design are the diversions and the connections with the national road, due to the proximity of the Guadalhorce estuary, as the Marina’s groin could be a barrier for the sediment (carried by the river) distribution, in such a manner that the adjacent beaches would suffer a regression.

The interventions related to the Universal Forum of Cultures 2004 have supposed a great reconstruction process in an area of Barcelona which has been derelict until recent times. The area comprises 214 Ha, and it includes the renovation of important urban infrastructures, the restructuring of the Besos Water Treatment Plant, the creation of a new Besos marina and the implementation of a new area of centrality with hotels, centres for congresses, shopping centres, offices and dwellings. The designs took up part of the sea by means of rectifying the coastline. The final goal was to recover a territory which was of little use by making a spotlight with potential activity, due to its excellent and strategic location, where the most important infrastructures and roads of the city join together. Esteyco worked actively in several projects related to the main area where the acts of Forum 2004 took place: the development of the Esplanade, the Coastal Ring Road coverage, the Sailing School, the Auditorium and the Photovoltaic Pergola. The project of development was carried out with the collaboration of the Architects Elias Torres and Jose Antonio Martinez Lapeña, and it covered an area of 90 Ha. The main characteristic was the existence of a technical floor over the cover structures of the Water Treatment Plan and the Coastal Ring Road, where a complex network of services is lodged, permitting the maximum flexibility for its future exploitation. Over the technical floor, some coloured asphalt and flowerbeds were spread, conferring the last finish to the esplanade. Cost of works: 18.069.906 eur.

The zoo is located in the Forum area, one of the most architecturally developed areas in the city. The infraestucture required for housing the numerous species of the new marine zoo will be created on a 100.000 m2 platform that will be built over the sea. The project includes several phases; from earthwork and deep foundation study to the definition of all the structures. It consists of five unique buildings with large swimming pools where there will be vision areas conceived as large methacrylates and an aquatic vision tunnel that crosses the larger tank. Platforms with aviaries and areas for pubic use will also be designed. We can stand out both the singularity of every building that will require a different treatment and structural type, and the large tanks that are integrated in each of the buildins.

The proposal is based on the idea of developing and enhancing the possible relations that will be established between the site and the future buildings, with regard to their definition and distribution on the plot and the interpretation of the site. The characteristics of the plot were integrated in a solution that develops a new topography, seeking to exploit, enhance and foster the relationship with the environment, characterized in general by a port and industrial landscape that meets a border of green mosaic descending from the hills to the docks in what could be considered to be the typical landscape of the estuary. The need for the New Headquarters to be representative and emblematic is addressed through the introduction of an isolated main volume, free of additions and superfluous elements, which attains its character through its interaction with the site. The plot is converted into a topography that concentrates the relations with the environment and then serves as a basis/framework of reference for the building. This aims to unify and simplify the formal reading of the building to achieve a more conceptual vision of greater scale, with a clear reference to the emblematic character— a truly differentiating feature in comparison with the rest of the buildings and port installations in the vicinity.
