Palmanova Day Centre works visit

The mayor of Calvià, the president of the Consell de Mallorca and the regional minister for Social Affairs of the Govern have visited this morning the works of the first Day Centre building that is being built in Calvià. On behalf of the Town Hall, the visit was also attended by, the deputy mayor for Social Cohesion and Equality, Nati Francés; the councillor for Social Development, Childhood and the Senior Citizens, M. Carmen Rojano; the councillor for Palmanova, Francisca Muñoz, and the councillor Rafael Sedano.

During the visit, they have been able to check the progress of the works that began at the end of 2021. The centre will have 30 places for senior citizens with dependency, which will become part of the Public Dependency Care Network. The premises has a cost of 736.548 euros and is financed 50% by the Regional Ministry of Social Affairs and Sports of the Govern, 25% by Calvià Town Hall and 25% by the IMAS.

The project, an idea of Opposite Architects, SLP and which is being carried out by the UTE Insae SA-TR Construya SL., is being built on two plots of land donated by Calvià Town Hall with a total surface area of 2.045 square metres. The new building will have a constructed area of 366 m2 on a single ground floor and a total height of five metres.
The building will have three volumes of different heights and dimensions, set around a patio and aligned according to the limits of the plot. Access will be through a porch from the street, which gives access to a corridor around which the three volumes are built.

The three modules are distributed as follows:
- Services module: includes the centre's service spaces, such as the geriatric bathrooms, the changing rooms and the staff room, the warehouse, the kitchen and the facilities room. All dependencies have access from the main corridor.
- Health module: there is the physiotherapy room and the doctor's office or the care room.
- Living room: contains the multipurpose room and the rest room, two rooms in which users will spend most of their time. These rooms are adjoining, so they can be used together or independently. This space has an outdoor terrace covered with a mobile pergola to regulate the entry of sunlight and the thermal comfort of the people using the facilities.
