NPS® beams are modelled in BIM, with the lowest possible use of raw materials from the outset.
They are produced in the factory using both self-generated energy and - as of January 1, 2022 - energy derived entirely from renewable sources.
Logistics is also low emission. Tecnostrutture gives priority to green-fuel and intermodal transport.
Site organization is simplified thanks to the fact that fewer workers are needed for installation: a team consists of just three fitters and a crane operator, compared to the large work teams of traditional systems.
Reducing on-site activities increases construction speed by an average of 40%, with positive social effects on the local community.
There are also advantages in relation to the drastic reduction of formwork, wood and props that are no longer necessary since the structures are self-supporting. This saves trips to bring in and return the temporary materials as well as their production. The result is a substantial contribution to the reduction of construction site waste and scrap, with NPS® products arriving ready for assembly.
At the end of the building's life, NPS® beams are removed through selective demolition, which allows for the complete reuse of the steel and concrete used.
