Sagrada Família

The Sagrada Família carpentry workshop chooses Biesse.

The carpentry workshop in Antoni Gaudí’s world-famous basilica buys a Biesse machining centre (Klever 1224 G FT) which will principally be used for making templates for stone, marble and concrete elements of the basilica as well as moulds for shuttering.

Salvador Guardiola is an experienced boat builder and creator of the reproductions of two of the caravels that accompanied Columbus on his voyage to America, and for the last nineteen years has been in charge of the carpentry workshop in the Sagrada Família. “We chose BIESSE for the quality of the machine and the technical service on offer,” notes Guardiola. “The machine cannot stop. There are days when it works for 24 hours. Therefore we need an immediate response to any incident”. And the technical assistance provided by BIESSE to the carpentry workshop of the Sagrada Família will be punctual, precise and efficient. It will be provided via the online assistance the prestigious Italian firm offers its clients.

The new machining centre measures 2500 x 1250 mm and is the solution to a growing space problem in the workshop headed by Salvador Guardiola: an unusual workshop, with an area of 80 square metres, operating at a height of 30 metres above ground level. At present, the workshop employs 20 people out of the 200+ personnel working on the construction of the Sagrada Família. Two machine operators specializing in numerical control, one IT technician and Guardiola himself will be in charge of the new machining centre, which will work to maximum output. “Patterns arrive in the carpentry shop from the design office at a frenetic pace. Nearly all pieces are curved and irregular in shape,” adds Salvador Guardiola. “These are the famous paraboloids which are the elements of a huge and intricate structure that’s gradually taking shape. By 2026 the church of the Sagrada Família will be complete.”
