Designed by the prestigious architect César Pelli, the TORRE IBERDROLA houses the Group's headquarters and because of its characteristics represents the zero mile of renewable energy. Its impressive 165-metres-high glass structure is a financial and business icon of the city, Bilbao, and a benchmark in sustainable design and energy efficiency. The building is also a meeting point for art and society.
This great obelisk, whose triangular shape allows for making the most of the space, is in fact the tallest building in the city centre. With a built surface of around 62,000 square metres on 41 totally open floors, the projections of this prism's vertexes come together symbolically at a height of 1,000 metres.
The TORRE IBERDROLA has been conceived as a driving force for creating value for the company's employees, its surroundings and its customers. The internal distribution of the headquarters promotes teamwork, the transfer of knowledge and organisational learning in an ideal space, respectful of the environment, that contributes to operational efficiency.
Located in the renovated promenade of the Bilbao estuary, a short distance from the main areas and buildings of 21st century Bilbao -the Guggenheim Museum, the Euskalduna Palace, the Federico Moyua Square and the Campa de los Ingleses wharf- the Group's headquarters is built on a site that reflects the company's commitment to the Basque Country and to the city where several companies that make up today's IBERDROLA Group were founded more than 100 years ago.
