AXIS designs the project for the new Volvo Trucks centre in Madrid

The new Volvo Truck Centre, which opened for business on 24 June, occupies a strategic location in the capital next to the A-2 and will significantly expand Volvo’s service offer.

Designed by AXIS Architecture, the new centre offers a built area of close to 2,000 m² and an open-air depot of 8,600 m², and its workshop area boasts the best and most advanced equipment available for the repair and maintenance of HGVs and buses. The workshop is divided into six 28-metre "drive-through" lanes, with a 23-metre prefabricated inspection pit with a brake tester and play detector and an additional 8-metre lane specially designed for servicing hybrid buses. 

The building complies with regulations for the handling of gas, LNG and CNG vehicles. An energy-efficient air renewal system has been designed for the workshop area using natural ventilation, minimising the building’s energy consumption.
