  • Two classrooms adapted to EHEA:

1.1. A. 17: seating capacity of 48
1.1.A. 19: seating capacity of 44

These classrooms were obtained by transforming the former audiovisual room 1.1. A .17 and the adjoining classroom, 1.1.A.19. Neither of these rooms had the necessay requirements for a EHEA classroom. The audiovisual room had a seating capacity of 72 and the other only 18. For that reason, the following work was carried out:

Removal of the audiovisual infrastructure from classroom 19 (equipment, control room, etc.)
The dividing wall between the two spaces was torn down in order to obtain two proportionally-sized classrooms with sufficient capacity.
It was also necessary to put partial technical flooring in one of the classrooms.

  • Conversion of the Conference Room located in the library building into a room with audiovisual infrastructure
  • System for projection and sound in the Assembly Hall

Installation of a monitorized screen with projector
Wiring of one of the rooms
An audio and projection system was installed.
For that purpose, part of the wiring and available equipment was reused.

Adaptation of the classrooms has already been carried.
