When the United Nations University decided to open a branch in Barcelona, devoted to higher education and academic research in the field of sociology and migrations, the Government of Catalonia and the City of Barcelona proposed a partnership. It included the possibility for the international organisation to use a prestigious landmark building in the city, a pavilion of the Hospital de Sant Pau.
The world famous modernist location had to be renovated to meet the operational and safety standards.
The local government decided to employ the European Regional Development Funds for this investment. It meant to be extremely cost-wise and careful from the architectural, legal and financial point of view.
My role was to support the financial auditing and the certification of the expenditures associated with the renovation works of the pavilion later hosting the University of the United Nations.
