It is an old tanning factory dating from the eighteenth century and has an adjacent land, which adds, next to the building, a total of 23,000 square meters. The rehabilitation works have conserved the building typology of the area, adapting the tanning factory to the new uses it has as a training center. This center is the first in Spain specifically dedicated to specialized training and the labor recycling of workers and construction companies in the area of rehabilitation. Each year, more than 2,000 professionals are trained, including 300 professionals in different specialties such as wood, stone, forge or metal.
