This thesis represents the structure for develop at the executive project level the design of a new building destined for residence for people affected by cerebral palsy and related disabilities. It is important to know the different steps that are necessary to follow to construct an entire building taking account how to evaluate the capacity of every installation and the methods to know this capacity. The methodology to write this document is to describe the theoretical part to design every installation and after that, calculate the results of each installation in this specific project. There is a procedure to calculate every installation. First it is necessary to introduce it, then describe the Standards regulation and write the conditions to take account in every case (interior and exterior conditions, size of rooms and situation of the building, etc.). When these conditions are clear, the next step is to calculate the number of units and the needed power to develop every installation. Each one has a concrete method to take this number. For example, calculate the size and numbers of pumps, taking account the flow of water it is necessary to distribute or calculate the number of air-conditioning units and ventilators, considering the thermal loads of every room. After successful verification of these units, it is necessary to know the electrical consumption of each one to know the electrical supply needed for the building in order to describe the different sources installed. It is necessary to distribute the electrical power in different lines for every floor. For that, it has been installed 16 distribution panels to supply all the electrical necessities of the building. After having all the theoretical and practical results of the installations, the next step is to draw the plans to show schematically the final structure.
