Visiting Simed

Last Friday we visited the opening day of the SIMED 14th Mediterranean Real Estate Exhibition. This year our College of Architects of Malaga has had its stand with a totally sustainable proposal since it has been manufactured with recycled panels and structure.

We have come with great interest to the First PASSIVHAUS Conference on the Costa del Sol and with great interest we have exchanged opinions in the Round Table on the FUTURE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN BUILDING

It has been a privilege to meet Adelina Uriarte, President of the Spanish Platform Passivhouse Spain.
