The GPO, Prointec, Humbert Costas and Manuel Gómez consortium was awarded with the construction of the new Can Brians 2 penitentiary center, 40 km from Barcelona, with space for 1,500 inmates. Each cell has a maximum capacity for 2 inmates. A further notable factor is the optimization of communal spaces and resources, such as those for education, sport, and culture. Can Brians stands out for the breadth and comfort of its facilities and for its large open areas.
