Structures that must resist seismic loads have to be designed and conceived under this premise from the very beginning of the process. This fact is so relevant that can (and should) affect in a general way the selection of the structural system.
In general, every seismic-resistant building consists of three types of elements:
Since installations have become a fundamental aspect of projects, with a significant presence in the overall budget, and volume of the building, designers have tried to integrate them as much as possible with the building, making them coincide with other architectural elements such as structure and envelope.

On October 6 the winning project for the "Centro Integral del Transporte de Madrid" designed by Andrés Perea Ortega, Lourdes Carretero Boltrán, Julio de la Fuente Martínez and BAC Engineering, was presented in the Tetuán’s District Board.
HOLEDECK es la estructura del futuro hoy. Designed as a more sustainable lightweight slab, by reducing considerably the consumption of concrete, las exclusivas patentes mundiales de HOLEDECK permiten la realización de estructuras con nervios perforados matricialmente para paso de instalaciones.
Welcome. From HOLEDECK we are convinced of the structure’s relevance in sustainability. We believe that future structures should have the smallest direct and indirect impact on the carbon footprint, should be flexible, and allow for versatility which translates in greater possibilities of configuration and uses, which can contribute actively and/or passively in the construction of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB). That is our commitment.
Since 2012 HOLEDECK lanzó el revolucionario sistema Ho 45 (45 cm. depth + cc), the clients demanded a version with less thickness for its implementation in housing and tertiary industry. After a development phase, HOLEDECK anuncia la salida al mercado del nuevo sistema de menor canto Ho30 (45cm. depth + cc.), designed for spans less than 8 m.
On October 23 of March, HOLEDECK participated with Florentino Regalado Engineers, Julio Touza Arquitectos, Estudio Lamela, Julio Touza Arquitectos and Estudio Seguí, among others, and exposed the main features of the system, generating wide acceptance and curiosity by those present.
