Innovation drives
our growth

The pursuit of innovation, sustainability and efficiency is one of the fundamental principles behind Simetria’s work.

Therefore, in order to remain competitive in a changing market, we have made a firm commitment to innovation creating Globalcyclus, a firm dedicated exclusively to operating the whole company Innovation.  

For Simetría, innovation is a global strategy that penetrates into every level of the companyIn order for our group to be considered innovative, we promote the knowledge, creativity and skills of our employees. 

To this end, we have implemented an R&D&I management system in all of our business areas, in line with the UNE 166002 standard, thereby creating an innovation-oriented business strategy that enables us to offer more sustainable solutions to our clients.

Simetria boasts a team of professionals who specialise in the development of R&D&I projects. Innovation Management is developed from Globalcyclus by coordinating the different experts of each business to offer energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable solutions. Our R&D activities chiefly focus on improving process efficiency, waste management and the development of new materials. 

The digital transformation of our procedures and services are a key target for Simetria. Globalcyclus focus all the developments of new tecnologies that are made for the different business’ areas, allowing them to conduct an efficient management based in data.  

OUR VISION 

In Simetria we want to be a national-level referent both in construction and delivery service. We base our growth on innovation as a transversal line in the whole company and we deliver a global and efficient service to our clients, leveraging the synergies we generate among the different businesses of the company.

ASFALCER

Making use of ceramic waste in hot bituminous mixtures as a partial substitute for natural aggregates of limestone origin in base and intermediate layers, and for aggregates of siliceous origin in the wearing course

This project involves the creation of synthetic aggregates from recycled ceramic waste, which is then used to produce hot bituminous mixtures. This process enables the creation of a new product (namely, a more sustainable aggregate) that reduces the consumption of natural resources, eliminates construction waste and improves mechanical performance and durability for all types of traffic. This project was funded by the Government of Valencia’s Small and Medium-Sized Industry (IMPIVA) programme.

Warm asphalt

Design, characterisation and production of additives to reduce polluting emissions during the manufacturing of asphalt mixtures

This project involves the design, optimisation and production of an additive to reduce the viscosity of hydrocarbon-based binding materials, making it possible to lower the production temperature and design a self-compacting asphalt mixture while also lowering CO2 emissions, due to the fact that less fossil fuel is consumed during the asphalt mixture production process. This project has received funding from the Government of Valencia’s Small and Medium-Sized Industry (IMPIVA) programme and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Eco-efficient Construction (E3)

Eco-efficient Construction (E3)

This project is funded by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and involves the development of new industrialised construction systems derived from solutions based on passive systems that make it possible to optimise the performance of a building’s outer envelope. The construction solutions in question are comprehensive, energy-efficient and sustainable, which makes them easy to adjust and distribute internally.

Removal of falsework

Study of the value and evolution of the durability and deformability parameters for the concrete used in construction falsework, and adjustment of the criteria for erection and removal of falsework in line with different temperature and moisture conditions

This project is funded by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) and involves the adjustment of criteria for the erection and removal of construction falsework, in line with the different temperature and moisture conditions that may prevail at different times of the year and the different geographical areas in which BECSA operates, while at the same time improving the models for distributing the loads between the falsework erected.
