Bridge typology design

With a lengthy tradition in research into the behaviour of materials, and in particular the behaviour of concrete and steel structures, we are experts in design of composite bridges and unique bridges.

We are likewise at the cutting edge of technological progress, incorporating within our projects the latest developments in the sector in the application of such new materials as stainless steel and copper.

Self-generating construction processes

MC2 Estudio de Ingeniería has specialised in the planning of landmark construction procedures for the execution of major works by designing a wide range of evolutionary thrust, flotation, hoisting and lifting processes, giving rise to self-generating structural arrangements, offering considerable auxiliary resource, cost and time savings.

In the field of exceptional buildings, including skyscraper construction, communications towers and refurbishment, MC2 Estudio de Ingeniería develops projects of proven complexity in response to the most demanding requirements imposed by the architectural conditions.

Computational wind analysis

Aware of the possibilities offered by today’s technology to optimise structures at the design stage, MC2 Estudio de Ingeniería has made a clear commitment to introduce the computational analysis of the wind actions in projects. Thanks to the generation of complex mathematical models based on fluid theory (CFD models), we can predict how structures will behave in response to wind actions, significantly optimising load values compared to the conservative coefficients indicated by the regulations. At the same time, we can simulate the results of a wind tunnel with considerable precision, with a tight deadline and budget.

New life for existing infrastructure

In much of the Western world the heritage of existing infrastructure in service is too large to be overlooked. The current trend in developed countries in terms of constructions involves maintaining, refurbishing, and ultimately giving a new lease of life to this whole set of infrastructures. At MC2 Estudio de Ingeniería we have an extensive portfolio of refurbishment projects behind us, applying the most modern analysis, repair and reconstruction techniques, that allow us to give a new lease of life to historic buildings or to lengthen the service life of bridges.

Parametric structure and free form design

Thanks to parametric design and the application of new methodologies based on the popular Building Information Modelling (BIM), we can design structures with an organic geometry of considerable irregularity or free forms.
