We encourage innovation internally and we reward cutting edge ideas.
We are inspired by a philosophy of continuous improvement that drives us to push boundaries and challenge ourselves. We do not see any progress as being sufficient.
The main lines of research in which we are working are as follows:
Saving energy is not the only way to be efficient. Its use and generation through renewable sources also contribute to building a more sustainable environment.
Some building materials are going to stay with us for a long time, so we should try to maximise their uses through recycling and reuse.
Although we are pioneers in the use of BIM and Lean Construction technologies, we know that digitizing processes and introducing technical improvements make us more agile and solvent.
Artificial intelligence and robotics
Big Data analysis and predictive modelling provide us with information that allows us to make better decisions. Robotics ensures surgical precision in unsafe environments.
Thanks to this innovative spirit, which starts in the R&D+i department and extends to all areas of the company, we now have working methodologies and constructive solutions that make us more efficient, sustainable and responsible. But we do not stop researching.
Here are some of the R&D+i projects certified by UNE 166001:2006 and RD 4/2004 that have been born from our innovative spirit:
the industry’s transformation
Our vocation for excellence and innovative DNA lead us to challenge the status quo and promote the industry’s advancement. For this reason, we actively participate in various associations.
We are founders and members of this initiative since its inception as the Platform for the Industrialisation of House Building. After its overhaul as a cluster, of which our CEO Michel Elizalde is vice-president, we work in collaboration with some of the main players in the sector to promote innovation and implementation of industrialised processes in the construction of all types of buildings.
The Spanish Construction Technology Platform (PTEC), in which we lead the working group on energy efficiency and participate in the working groups on blockchain, 3D printing and digitalisation of buildings and infrastructures.
We are members of Building Smart, a non-profit association whose primary purpose is to promote efficiency in the construction industry through the use of open standards of interoperability on BIM (Building Information Modelling) to reach new levels in cost reduction, execution times and quality increase.
