New Ecological Materials for Sustainable Construction

Building materials have been evolving and now many of them are ecological materials. What is ecological construction? What are the new innovative materials for Sustainable Construction? From Duinsa we explain it to you! What is Green Construction? Green building is one that minimizes emissions of CO2 and other pollutants through the use of natural, recycled and locally sourced materials.  It’s also characterized by the low generation of possible waste during the construction process and also takes into account its useful life, recycling and post-treatment.  Innovative Materials for Sustainable Construction Thermochromic cement This type of cement changes color depending on the outside temperature. Thanks to these changes, the temperature of the facade of the house increases or decreases, which helps to have a comfortable room temperature inside. Self-repairing concrete The main objective of self-repairing concrete is to put an end to the popular plan... +info

The new profiles most in demand in the construction sector for 2022

The Construction Labor Foundation recognizes that the sector needs 700,000 workers to cope with the upward trend in construction and the boost that the injection of European Next Generation funds will bring. In this situation of employment demand for the construction sector, it is evident the creation of new professional profiles which have their origin in the modernization of the sector and the incorporation of state-of-the-art technology. From DUINSA, we will take a look at these new profiles, which are undoubtedly the most demanded in the sector at present. The entry of new profiles in construction The technification and digitalization of the sector has contributed to the development of two transformations within the construction industry: on the one hand, the reconversion of traditional trades towards highly qualified professional profiles; and on the other hand, the integration and diversity of the workforce.

Cracks in buildings: how are they monitored and corrected?

Cracks and crevices in ceilings and walls are one of the most common problems that occur in any type of building. Not all of them have the same degree of importance, some being much more dangerous. Therefore, it is important to be able to classify them in order to know how to correct and prevent them. From DUINSA, we will explain everything in detail. Classification of cracks The types of cracks are classified depending on how they affect the construction element: Coating cracks: these are the ones that occur on the outside of the walls due to different causes such as temperature and humidity conditions or the poor quality of the applied coatings. Structural cracks: these are more important since, in addition to the coating, they can affect the structural element. They may be due to settlement problems of the construction due to poor settlement of the ground, hidden construction defects or external conditions, such as the construction of an annex building, and other works t... +info

Modular Industrialized Integral System

The most important Spanish companies of solutions and construction materials (Sika, Baxi, Velux, Thermochip and Uponor) have come together to create a Modular Industrialized Integral System (SIIM). The SIIM is an innovative system to move towards an industrialized construction model, facilitating the process of project design and execution, which will allow it to be more efficient in the near future. The digitization or automation of processes will be key to this system, in fact, it will incorporate the BIM methodology. In this way you can generate and manage data on the life cycle, planning, design, execution, maintenance, use and renovation of buildings. In addition, it will have a low environmental impact, with a sustainable manufacturing process, producing only what is necessary and running 100% dry, without waste and with less energy consumption. The companies of the alliance, assure that this solution will provide greater efficiency, lightness, profitability and sustaina... +info
