  • “Arción has become a referencein the field of construction”Arción will celebrate its 26th birthday this year 2010, and it will doso by being present in most corners of Spain. During all these years,we have earned the respect from our peers. We are now considereda large company, able to serve the most demanding and successfulclients and investors. Arción was born in 1984 as a company specialized in therestoration and recovery of some of the most emblematical worksin Spain’s cultural and historical heritage. Since then, and withoutforgetting our origins, we have grown and are now the builder ofcarriageways, railroads, viaducts, hydraulic works and all sort ofhousing projects. We are present in some the most important counstructions ofthis generation, such as the AVE, Spain’s high-speed train. We are atthe forefront of our sector with buildings such as the Guadalajara ArtSchool or the Robotized Car Parking in Valencia’s city centre. Hundreds of professionals work in our company, and they doso within the frame of our socially responsible corporate culture. Acorporate culture whose main features are professional ethics, a highdegree of respect for the environment and our commitment towardsthe community where we live and work. We are concentrated in getting to the future before everyoneelse. From our start, we have made an effort to constantly updateourselves when it comes to technology and material resources. Nowadays, that effort has been recognized by internationalawards that works which Arción undertook have received. Amongthem, the prestigious Designshare Award for Innovative Schoolsor the prize that L’Almoina Archeological Museum received as thesecond best European Museum. We have erected works that will stay for a very long time in thememory of those who admire them. We want to keep it that way inthe future. ARCION: CLOSER TO THE FUTURE 21

  • “We are noted for our high quality processes” We realize that, in Arción, we have spent a great deal of our history connecting the dots. Trazing highways and railroads that connect cities, that help move goods and services, create jobs and economic growth. We have spent a lot of time leading projects whose main objective has been to contribute to the development and modernization of Spain and other countries. Arción undertakes infrastructure works, and it does it thanks to technologies and methodologies designed to fit the current needs of the industry. We are noted for our high quality processes and for being able of perfectly undertaking great public projects. Thousands of people travel every day by roads that we have built. For instance, the A-1 dual carriageway (in the Manoteras- San Sebastián de los Reyes stretch, in Madrid), the A-42 dual carriageway in the Madrid-Toledo stretch and the A-5 dual carriageway in the Oropesa stretch. An endless number of passengers travel by trains and railroad stretches which we have created, as the AVE (Spain’s high speed train) that goes from Madrid to Valencia. All those works are a reminder that, nowadays, the greatest pride a corporation such as Arción can take is, simply, of that of connecting the dots. That of connecting people and cities.A-42 Dual carriageway. Stretch: Cabañas de la Sagra (Toledo)Client: Ministry of Public Works and Transport (Spain) ARCION: CLOSER TO THE FUTURE 25

  • “We are honoured that many cities have entrusted us with their museums, their schools and their hospitals” For us, building housing projects is more than putting bricks together. For us, it is erecting the homes where tomorrow’s generations will live and dream. For that reason, committed as we are with the community where we live, we make the effort of working for it with efficiency, determination, quality and a complete respect for its environment. In late 2009, we were honoured with the Brick Architecture Award for a public housing project in Mocejón, Toledo. A project that was designed by architect Luis Martínez Santamaría. Being considered the best construction company in that category is a great way of starting the decade, isn’t it? We are honoured that many cities have entrusted us with their museums, their schools and their hospitals. In Valencia, where our corporate offices are located, we were charged with building the L’Almoina Archeological Museum. In Vinaroz, we erected the Forget Public School. In Daimiel, we created its local clinic. Arción is present in Albacete’s Medical School building, in the Parliament of the Region of Valencia, in Castellón’s Sports City, in the Guadalajara Art School or in Jávea’s Conservatory. If, in a hundred years old, young music students keep on playing their notes within the walls we erected, our work will have been worthwhile.167 apartments (Valencia)Client: Private Developer ARCION: CLOSER TO THE FUTURE 37

  • “Arción has the knowledge,expertise, and the human andmaterial resources to bringthe grandeur back to ourcommon past”During the first few years of Arción’s history, our core business wasthe restoration and recovery of Spain’s architectural and culturalheritage. For decades, our corporation’s main commitment was to restoreemblematical buildings for the sake of future generations. We haveundertaken important works at such emblematical buildings as thewall of the Castle of Xátiva, the Castle of Petrer, the New BatzánPalance in Madrid, Benicássim’s famous Villa Elisa or L’AlmoinaArcheological Museum, in Valencia. Nowadays, we are among the most respected Spanishcompanies in that specific field. In 2009, two of our main works were the restoration of SanJuan de la Cruz Church and the recovery of San Esteban ProtomártirChurch, both in Valencia, where our headquarters are located. Our commitment with the past opens the way to an even morestrenghtened future. ARCION: CLOSER TO THE FUTURE 49
