SERVICES

 

We provide consultancy, design and sustainability management services while taking into account the environmental impact, energy efficiency and comfort.

 

We offer our clients support to reach their projects’ environmental comfort. We offer environmental building design through passive and active means, sunlight and artificial light and suggest construction materials and techniques.

Diagnosis of energy efficiency and environmental comfort. Proposals for improvement strategies according to sustainable and economic criterion.

Execution of architecture design and urban projects bringing to life energy efficiency strategies according to technical and aesthetic criterion.

Participation of technicians and the building occupants in the energy management with the aim to reduce the operational cost and environmental impact.

Scientific papers and technical writings. Dissemination of results and organization of training actions.
