The Award for Best Commerce Building 2020 was given to Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota, in the Collective Device Category, organised by Magazine Imobiliário, in an event that took place in Sintra.
"This award enables companies to showcase the excellence of companies that rebuild and refurbish in our country", as mentioned by the Magazine Imobiliário director, Carla Celestino.
The award adds to the previous prize allocated to Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota by the Prémios CONSTRUIR 2019, for the best engineering workmanship, to the construction company Lucios, for the requalification works of the Pavilhão Rosa Mota.
Former Sports Pavilion, aka Rosa Mota Pavilion underwent a stringent and highly innovative restructuring plan; this building was literally brought to life and aims at an auspicious future.
Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota officially opened on 28th October 2019. The venue is fitted with state-of-the-art technologies and can host up to eight thousand people in cultural, sports and business events.
The privileged location of the Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota is an added value as it works as a streamline for culture in Porto.
The old exterior façade was kept; still, the building now offers a restaurant with a view to the lake and to the Gardens of Palácio de Cristal, whose opening is scheduled for the first semester of 2020, and a food court to support this activity.
The Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota project took into consideration sustainability issues, in order to leave a green footprint in the city. As such, energy and resource efficiency were a main concern during the project implementation, namely the natural cooling of the temperature control machines by resorting to the lake water of the Gardens of Palácio de Cristal, which allows the reduction of nearly 40% of energy consumption and water waste.
