BUC will develop its program and objectives as a workgroup of Barcelona Global
Barcelona Global and Barcelona Urban Cluster (BUC) have signed an agreement through which members of the latter integrate into the association. The Chairman of Barcelona Global, Gonzalo Rodés, and the President of BUC, Joan Pla, have signed the agreement this Tuesday, May 15th, and, after a transition period, members of BUC will become Corporate Members of Barcelona Global for all purposes and BUC will develop its program and objectives as a workgroup of Barcelona Global.
BUC is a non-profit organization, formed by 43 members: professionals and companies linked to the urban planning sector, construction, infrastructure and real estate; that works to energize and modernize the sector in order to make it a reference point again in creating jobs and to contribute to improving the welfare of the city.
With this integration, Barcelona Global adds the sensitivity of urban, real estate, infrastructure and architecture sectors, key elements for the realization of its mission: make Barcelona one of the world’s best cities for talent and economic activity.
“In a country that very often works in small groups, the integration of the members of the BUC with Barcelona Global is a great news to add together the sensitivities and experiences in the improvement of Barcelona as a global city. The addition of the sensitivity of the partners of the Urban Cluster has to help us, also, work from the perspective of urban planning. Having a critical mass that leads and drives these projects is crucial,” assured the Chairman of Barcelona Global, Gonzalo Rodés.
On his part, Pla has emphasized: “The integration into Barcelona Global means complementing one of the strategic elements that we target: the integration of the talent and the impulse of economic activity. The integration allows us to extend the opportunities, the knowledge and the access to talent, the essence of the activity and mission of Barcelona Global.” He added: “the development and urban transformation, urbanism, design, architecture, economic activity, access to housing, etc., are the key contributions of the real estate sector and the construction industry that, with the integration, the BUC has the opportunity to expand and participate in the development of the city of Barcelona”.
