Energy refurbishment of buildings
We perform building energy audits and certifications, for which we have the appropriate know-how and experimental means and codes.
We actively take part (design, execution and usage) in projects and actions for the energy refurbishment of buildings and districts by defining and providing singular bioclimatic solutions and evaluating financial, energy, environmental, and sustainability criteria and indicators.
We provide in-house developed products and technology for renewable power generation and energy savings in buildings, optimising the overall energy efficiency of integral building refurbishment solutions.
We devise life-cycle studies and analyses.
We study road infrastructures by taking their environmental impact and the safety in the transport of people and goods into account.
We check the influence of design, equipment, signage, and state of conservation of roads on user behaviour and vehicle manoeuvrability.
We conduct detailed analyses of real accidents and risk situations with regard to the design and state of conservation of infrastructures
We evaluate the performance of protective elements, such as safety barriers, and sign posts after crashes, and analyse road surfaces and the layout and design of roads, shoulders, and junctions in the event of drive-off-the-road events.
We propose road equipping, design and construction solutions in order to guarantee user safety.
We develop equipment, technology solutions, and software tools that enable us to make, from statistical data, a diagnosis – with the corresponding cost/benefit analysis – for optimising available resources.
By means of modern ITs we provide specific programmes and sensors that allow knowing the state of traffic in real time and, thus, being able to manage those actions aimed at improving user safety.
We are currently working on identifying materials and technologies with a small environmental impact, that is, whose introduction involves a smaller consumption of energy and which have smaller maintenance requirements and lower noise emissions.
We provide solutions with minimum energy consumption for road sensors and information boards.
We have a Road Infrastructure Safety Lab – occupying nearly 25ha of land and 20,000m2 of paved streets – where we can reproduce any type of road infrastructure and perform on them controlled tests to evaluate the passive safety of infrastructure elements, the operation of ITS systems and their interaction with users.
