Sacyr to expand the Museo del Prado02/06/2022
Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has won the contract for the architectural and museum rehabilitation of the ‘Salón de Reinos’.
The Museo del Prado of Madrid has awarded the development of an expansion project to a joint venture consisting of Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure and Empty.
With this highly relevant action for an institution as important as the Museo del Prado, the development will add more than 9,000 m2 of the ‘Salón de Reinos’ to the museum space. The goal of this project is to hold the museum’s collections and develop a specific program of temporary expositions.
This expansion will enrich the cultural offer of the Paseo del Prado and Buen Retiro, which was inscribed on the UNESCO Heritage Site list in 2021.
It is expected that works start next July and have a project deadline of 30 months. Construction project management falls to the JV Foster+Partners-Rubio Arquitectura.
