We attended the VI Ibero-American Congress of Engineering and Technology

Attending CIBITEC 24, the VI Ibero-American Congress of Engineering and Technology, allowed us to discuss how foresight, safety, feasibility and the provision of sustainable solutions are essential to the success of any project.

Fernando Ramírez Baeza, Director at MERLIN Properties, commented during the Sustainable Construction and Refurbishment panel, ‘We have just launched self-imposed limits of a maximum embedded carbon footprint not to be exceeded in any construction process. The limit is 500kg CO2 per m2 in offices and centres, and 400kg CO2 per m2 in logistics’.

Also participating at the table were J. César López, General Manager of Building at FCC Construcción, HIGINI ALFAGEME CARRERA, Director of Global Precast Business at PRECON – Prefabricated Solutions (Cementos Molins), Inés Leal, General Manager of the Tecmared Group and David García Núñez, Chairman and Moderator of MWCC.
