EVO came to life in record time, only 11 months. The construction site was active 6 days per week with an average of 9 working hours per day. In the project have been involved 97 companies with over 100 people on the site every day.

NZEB building

EVO is a Nearly Zero Energy Building. The compactness of the building, its external structure, the use of high performance energy systems, the production of energy from renewable sources over covering the requirements are some of the characteristics that contribute to make it a NZEB.
Other environmental factors considered and treated in the project are viability and traffic, noise, soil atmosphere, under ground, groundwater, surface water. Special attention is also given to #green areas with 45,000 mq of green surface and 350 new trees planted by the end of the project, creating green spaces for employees and workers with the aim to improve everyone's working quality life.

Industry 4.0 

Digitization of production and assembly processes is the key to optimizing long-running processes and boosting flexibility and efficiency. In the new EVO production plant, industry 4.0 enables much quicker flow of customized products radically reducing inventories throughout the supply chain, reducing our customers’ machines time-to-market.
