Alhóndiga Bilbao – Bilbao, Spain

The Bibli-CA storage system was the starting point for the archive solution. New requirements of the system were evoked by the architect, such as the integration of a lighting system and the elevation of the first archive level, carried out with the use of a structure composed of 3mm black steel plates. Also, the need of mobility in some areas involved the integration of casters into the structures.
