Digital Central Unit

contributed by ARX_Portugal

The explosion of new residential neighbourhoods in the Cascais area led to the need to broaden telecom networks, therefore the need to build this Digital Central and to have it working, on a first stage, at only 50 percent of its full capacity. A Telecom Central is a very specific building, being uninhabited for the most part, except for sparse maintenance visits and where, due to the sensitive machinery inside, natural light is not at all wanted. Bearing in mind its sensitivity and expenses, this equipment demands a constant temperature and humidity, besides the need to be immune to any power instability. Thus, the building has to be fully autonomous in terms of energy. Its monitoring and control is made remotely from Lisbon. Having no other inner requirements than the logic of its machinery, the architectonic concept for the building was centred in shape and in urban performance.
