The Central Municipal Sports Centre, Alella, Spain

Altro Ensemble brings strength and flexibility to Spanish sports centre

Altro Ensemble

“Altro Ensemble has excellent technical performance. It also provides great flexibility with design choices and has created a very welcoming atmosphere in the different rooms.”

Santiago Villanueva, Architect


The Central Municipal Sports Centre in Alella, Barcelona, provides a wide range of activities for its members. The gym, fitness area and personal training rooms were being expanded and refurbished, with new flooring required that would provide comfort underfoot, excellent durability and easy maintenance.


Montserrat Casarramona, Chief Operating Officer of UESPORTS Alella explains their approach to the project: “The fitness room has wonderful natural light and excellent equipment, but it had become too small. Our growth led us to undertake this work and the result has been spectacular.”


With hygiene a key priority to keep members and staff safe, a quick installation flooring solution was required that had ease of cleaning, robust good looks, and warm aesthetics. In addition, the gym needed to return to use as quickly as possible, so disruption needed to be minimised. For these reasons architect Santiago Villanueva, a member of the College of Architects of Catalonia (COAC), chose Altro Ensemble in Natural Striking Oak for the fitness and training rooms. “The complexity of the project was how to combine the installation with day-to-day life at the gym, the lower floor of which continued to function. For this reason, the speed of installation and the simplicity in installing the floor have brought great advantages. So much so that the deadlines have been met sooner than expected. Of course, hygiene is key right now, and this flooring is very easy to clean.”

Santiago Villanueva added “With regard to other products in the market, the value for money plus technical support and customer service were key when choosing Altro. For this reason, we are looking at other projects where we can recommend the brand”.

“I would highly recommend Altro products. In addition to having a high-quality product, the customer service is unbeatable”
