RFEM Customer Project: Chapel Restoration in Lugo, Spain
The chapel adjoining to the old convent of San Pedro in Lugo, Spain, has its original construction dated back to 1690. Its ancient roof structure was based on trusses simply supported in putlog holes located in the main wall of the church. Over time, the lower vault of the structure deteriorated to the point of limiting access to the interior.
The renovation consisted of completely replacing the roof in order to make the space below fully usable again and to provide natural light to the main temple room through the stunning church windows. Previously, the windows were boarded up in order to support the roof trusses.
