In this project, the exterior walls are the reason for rehabilitation since the time passing has caused some distortion arising from the actions of climate intervals of rain, heat and cold, pollution, oxidation of the steel bars inside the corbels and cornices and the natural aging of the materials.
The most important pathologies occur in the molded cornices and elements that have been the occasion of falling, particularly the upper cornice of the façade (Cornice 3) and the cornice of the first (Cornice 1), as well as part of the cornice 4 that it is found in the same plane of the façade of the corner. We should add the falling of stone moldings that form the parapets, lintels and jambs of openings, as well as a widespread cracking of the balustrade.
