Estimating the efficiency of entire neighborhoods is already possible thanks to a new method developed by the Polytechnic University of Madrid and the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). This tool calculates the energy loss of the buildings through its envelope.
Moisture can cause damage to the facades or structure. For this reason, we must act as soon as possible to avoid more serious problems that affect different areas of the building. One of the most effective prevention formulas is the rehabilitation of facades, such as the project we are talking about today.
Sistema Masa and Knauf have returned to participate in a new project. This time, they have worked together in the enclosure for a light facade system that is being installed in a residential building in Barajas, Madrid (Spain).
To achieve a high level of energy efficiency, elements that are within the parameters of the new Technical Building Code must be installed. However, the construction sector is still very dependent on aluminum, a material that is both cold and heat-conducting, thus producing thermal losses.
