The ACCIONA Sustainability Blog has published an article "Non-polluting building materials", in which it explains the importance of the substitution of traditional materials, for composite materials and the benefits they offer to maintain the environment since they consume less amount of energy and present better features than the traditional ones.
There are more and more uses of composite materials in this sector, as ACCIONA itself promulgates in this blog, Carbures, aware of the properties of different composite materials, have been working for years to incorporate them into Civil Works. The fact that a leading actor at world level such as ACCIONA picks it up in a specific way, and incorporates it into its constructions, is an evidence that Carbures started on the right path years ago.
Carbures grows and, faithful to its DNA as a company, continues to innovate. The Company now uses its technology and know-how in the diversification of its activity in the Civil Works Division. In line with this strategy, it launches into the market a new line of activity: the design and manufacturing of luxury furnitures in composite materials. Carbures designs and manufactures three lines of furniture; Air Collection, Profile Collection and Origami Collection. All of them with different utilities and inspirations.
The division of Civil Works has manufactured from meshing work in composite materials for various constructions, including some train tracks, the 172 square meter roof of the Pavillion of Inspirations of the new headquarters of the Norman Foster Foundation in Madrid, to large pillars in fiber for the expansion of a shipping port in the Canary Islands. Now it adds personalized production and by order received of luxury furnitures. The Company has decided to go a step further and not only to cover the structures of the buildings or infrastructures, but it goes into the interior of offices and homes with this new specific section of luxury furniture.
