The study of the natural and anthropic risks associated to the physical environment and the socio-economic repercussions deriving from its dynamics in the foundations and civil infrastructures, have begun to have a very important boom. The negative experience acquired in the construction of buildings, through the information provided by the developers, allows us to know what the problems are intended to solve.
The technological solution involves a geographic information system associated with risks, which is capable of advising future developers, not only about the risks existing in future urban expansion areas, but also of the individualized detail of each of the plots that conform the urbanizations, allowing having the objective criteria in the election and purchase of building land.
Application of a geographic information system (GIS) of the land, in which as layers, it is possible to represent and divide into sections the natural and anthropic risks existing in all urban development in Madrid.
Until now, criteria for the purchase of building land are governed by criteria of mobility and proximity to the main means of communication without considering factors that may affect the foundation of new developments, which have a direct impact on the foundation and affect decisively in the cost of construction and therefore its viability, both technical and economic.
With this innovative solution, any developer will be able, before the purchase of the soil, to know the existing risks and possible solutions of foundations, and even the selection of areas that are more favourable.
“Technical solution, which through risk analysis supports developers in the purchase of building land”
“Given the equal cost of a parcel, the choice in the purchase determines the economic viability of the promotion”
