Fewer raw materials

PDTI® NPS® Columns take advantage of the structural efficiency of combining steel and concrete. This results in compact sections with a reduced use of raw materials and optimization of living space.


Logistics with low environmental impact

Tecnostrutture adopts a logistics strategy that respects the environment. We prefer green fuel road transport or the intermodal solution with longer stretches by rail.

As shown by the analysis of the product life cycle (LCA), transport to the construction site affects 2-3% of the total life cycle. Therefore, in addition to offering solutions that have little impact on logistics, Tecnostrutture’s commitment focuses above all in the raw material supply and end-of-life management phases, those that weigh most heavily on the environmental impact of the entire product life cycle.


Reduced emissions throughout the life cycle

  • The pillars 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 assembly: 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® elements are removed through selective demolition, which allows for the reuse of the steel and concrete used.
