Advance consulting to analyze and rehabilitate obsolete housing and to return them in use as fast as possible with full guarantees after boomurbs in 2007 in Spain
BRISVI is a new stool easy to assemble, store, highly resistant and cheap. It is achieved greater resistance by using lesser quantity of material with regard to the other models that are already available on the market, with the consequent financial savings.
XPS-AL is an appropriate solution for insulating the inverted flat roofs, avoiding interactions, reducing costs, and enlarging the life cycle
MALECON© is an innovative material that increases structural efficiency and safety for maritime, offshore and civil engineering industries. It is a fibre/metal hybrid laminated material tailored to meet the specific needs of every application. An effective alternative to traditional structural materials
The improvements made on the internal geometry of the horizontal hollow ceramic brick with hexagonal cells, under equal exterior dimensions, get multiply the sound absorption capacity of a single brick by the equivalent of four and half conventional bricks. These new designs have won the award and the honorable mention for best research paper in 2014 at the "International Conference on research related to Mechanical, Engineering Design & Advanced Manufacturing" held in Toulouse (France) in June 2014.
Researchers from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) have developed a board that solves the encounter between slabs and walls, designed to prevent the stress transmission between such components, essentially due to slabs’ deformations. This solution, valid for walls and floors of every kind and nature, will allow to visually detect the correct positioning of the joint between the wall and the upper slab. In addition, it prevents the appearance of fissures and cracks in walls due to excessive deflection of slabs.
Researchers from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) have developed a non-rotating lock system for a modified tribrach. The system developed prevents movement of the topographic locking device regarding its stand-by position, as it is much more firmly held than with previous systems. The system avoids the device’s rotation with respect to tribrach, integrating and establishing a single reference system during the whole observation period.
