HIGH QUALITY CONSTRUCTION
ATICTEC™ system uses a galvanized steel structure, forming a frame with special profiles that provide superior security against seismic movements.
All the houses are subjected to a study and structural calculation by an independent engineer, thus duplicating the control carried out by the architect.
The factory mechanization of the house components allows a clean, tight and precise assembly thus minimizing the waste generated during this operation, the sorting of waste is therefore easier to ensure in a workshop than on site. Also reduces the construction time by up to 50%allowing the house to be manufactured at the same time tas the work is being carried out on site. See graphic.
ATICTEC™system has thermal mass insulations combined with reflective insulations, currently used in the aviation industry. The combination of these elements is key to achieving the high thermal and acoustic insulation performance of the ATICTEC™ system.
ATICTEC™ only selects materials from leading European manufacturers, complying with the most demanding European standards in terms of structural safety, fire resistance, seismic and insulation. The Production and assembly are studied and planned in advance by the technical department, leaving no pending issues to be resolved on site. In this way a smooth and surprise-free assembly is achieved.
INVESTMENT FOR THE FUTURE
The houses are designed with functionality, comfort and convenience in mind. Once the client's desired layout is obtained, the ATICTEC™ system is used, designing the exteriors to obtain a unique and totally personalized house.
ATICTEC™ houses are designed so that the air conditioning, the mechanical ventilation (C.M.V.) and the rest of the energy saving and generation elements work in harmony with the thermal insulation and other installations.
The mechanical ventilation system can be combined with the Canadian well system, thus multiplying its efficiency. See figure 12 and figure 14
The green roof absorbs CO2 and fine particles, emits oxygen and improves thermal/acoustic insulation by protecting the roof. The green roof improves the performance of the solar panels. See figure 4
Air is a great insulator and allows passive cooling of the exterior walls. The ventilated façade protects the exterior walls from solar radiation and rain, improving the efficiency and comfort of the house. See figure 6.
The ATICTEC™ system is a dry joint construction method, with no wet mortar to bind and finish the components of the house. The dry joint is an exact joint.
ATICTEC™ uses traditional materials such as steel, wood, ceramics and resins. New technologies and treatments allow these materials to be used for a wider range of applications and performance, while maintaining their unaltered appearance.
ATICTEC™ houses consume up to 65% less energy for air conditioning, unlike conventional houses which require active cooling.
Houses with flat roofs incorporate an overhang that protects the windows from direct solar radiation , and therefore the house from overheating in summer, while letting the rays penetrate in winter. See figure 2
Pitched roof houses, designed for snowy areas, incorporate windows on the outside edge of the walls, so that light and solar radiation are harnessed.
Depending on the climate zone, the external glazing will have more or less solar control and one or two air chambers or argon gas will be used. See figure 7.
The exterior windows can be made of PVC, aluminum thermal break, wood or mixed wood/aluminum, in various colors to choose from. See figure 7.
ATICTEC™ houses incorporate a highly energy-efficient stove system with external cold air combustion. See figure 10.
The construction system maintains the continuity of the entire building envelope, eliminating thermal bridges and avoiding energy losses. This system acts in a reversible way; in winter it keeps the house warm and in summer it keeps it cool. See figure 5.
Solar thermal panels allow solar energy to be used to heat domestic hot water (DHW). This contribution assists the heating system by increasing the efficiency of the whole system.
Underfloor heating (optional), supported by the solar thermal panel, increases energy efficiency and indoor comfort. See figure 11.
Optionally, it can be equipped with photovoltaic solar panels, batteries and converter for self-supply of electricity. See figure 3.
ATICTEC™buildings are optionally available with systems for the recovery of greywater and rainwater for subsequent use in toilets and irrigation. See figure 8 and figure 9.
ATICTEC™ uses a galvanized steel structure, forming a framework with special profiles that provide the necessary safety against seismic movements. The structure is studied and verified according to the area where the house is to be built. See figure 15.
All this; results in low CO2 emissions to the environment, awarding the ATICTEC™ house the NZEB (Net-Zero Energy Building) status.
ATICTEC™ is the energy saving house.
ATICTEC™ buildings have a permanent ventilation system designed to renew and filter the indoor air, maintaining up to 90% of the energy contained in it. The system is able to detect under which conditions it is more convenient to take air from outside, filter it and bring it into the home, which significantly reduces energy needs for air conditioning and increases comfort. See figure 12.
The insulation of the house is up to 7.3 times higher than the average value of Spanish buildings and 2.4 times higher than the average value regulated by the Technical Building Code in Spain. The lower air conditioning needs provide greater comfort. See graph.
The control of solar radiation improves insulation and makes it possible to control the excesses and defects of natural light towards the interior of the dwelling. See figures 2 and figure 16.
The optional home automation allows the control of household electrical appliances, energy management (Heating and air conditioning), the safety of property and people (Alarms, motion detector)... etc through a simple device namely mobile phone, PC or tablet. The climate control system can detect incidents, which in some cases, can be solved remotely with the same application. See figure 1.
ATICTEC™ has two series of energy efficient houses:
Both series are complemented with GARAGE models and with FREEBOX, which are attached buildings.The constructions are customized to the taste of each client, as well as the materials for the facades, roofs, doors, windows, kitchens, distribution and other elements that are designed to the client's taste. The buildings are flexible in their design, layout and finishes.
