Structural engineering

At Cero Metros Cuadrados we have a technical team with which we offer comprehensive engineering services, civil engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, renewable energy, product design and project execution management. In this way we achieve the level of complexity and professionalism required by today’s most demanding standards. We coordinate construction solutions and future maintenance, always attempting to optimize times, reduce costs, improve quality and energy efficiency, and eliminate modifications and faults on site.

Mechanical engineering

Through our team of civil, mechanical and industrial engineers, we carry out all types of calculations using the finite element method:

  • Plastic calculation of metallic elements (aluminium and steel).
  • Calculation and analysis of stresses in reinforced concrete elements.
  • Wind tunnel calculations and simulations (CFD fluid dynamics).
  • Calculation and simulation of tanks containing liquids (fluid dynamics).
  • Design of special components (brackets, silos, parts and components of mechanical assemblies).

Industrial engineering

The following services are highlighted in this field:

  • Calculation of prefabricated and metallic industrial buildings.
  • Calculation of metal roofs with porticoed, radial or spherical.
  • On-site monitoring of the execution processes.
  • Pergolas for car parks.
  • Spatial reticular metal structures (3D).
  • Calculation of bolted joints (aluminium, steel, stainless steel, etc.).

Structural soundness and pathology studies

Although the study of the solidity of existing structures (buildings, industrial buildings, special structures, etc.) falls within the branch of Civil, Mechanical and Industrial engineering, it has been decided to put it as a separate section, because it includes several areas of engineering and architecture, and because in Cero Metros Cuadrados we have been performing this type of services for more than eight years, especially for the implementation of photovoltaic solar panels on existing structures that have been built at different times, with different regulations and also in different countries:

  • Soundness reports by visual inspection and on-site survey.
  • Soundness reports by means of justification by structural calculation and on the basis of the regulations in force.
  • Robustness reports by means of structural calculations and study of loads transmitted by the added systems.

Civil engineering

The following services are highlighted in this field:

  • Roads and Motorways (informative studies, layout projects and construction projects).
  • Road and rail bridges.
  • Pedestrian walkways.
  • Car parks and garages.
  • Earth retaining walls (gabion walls, gravity walls, diaphragm walls, etc.).
  • Slope Stability.
  • Concrete caissons.
  • Liquid tanks.
  • Canalisations.
  • Topographical surveys.

Seismic calculation and design

At Cero Metros Cuadrados we are specialists in the design, calculation and verification of structures in seismic zones. Structures such as: buildings, bridges, liquid tanks, metallic structures, etc. Calculations and designs with conventional systems and basic seismic isolation systems.
