The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao spans 24,000 square metres and is built on a 46,000 square metre site in the shape of an irregular triangle, crossed by the Salve Bridge.

Ferrovial Agroman built the museum, which included concrete foundations, erecting the metal structure, inner wall coating, installations and site development. This project, a symbol of modernity for the city, received the VI International Puente de Alcántara Award.

A masterpiece of construction and architecture

The foundation was laid on reinforced concrete piles driven into the bedrock at an average depth of 14 metres. Then, a unique metal structure was built on top of the piles and concrete slabs, using steel profiles to configure the skeleton of the core components. A number of much more complex metal structures, in terms of their placement and size, were mounted on top of the main structure.
