AEDAS Homes maintains a strong commitment to sustainability, industrialization and homes with a high standard of health and comfort, Raimundo Giménez, Territorial Delegate AEDAS Homes Center, states that these concepts "They are a relevant factor in all sectors, but much more so in ours. We come from a very traditional sector in which very polluting and expensive processes were used. For us, industrialization is vital for the future of construction, which is why we have been promoting it since 2018 to solve two great needs: Reduce construction times and increase sustainability in housing. We have realized that not only have the new economic models forced us to modify the model of urban development and housing, but also that society has changed in its needs and demands in terms of housing and amenities"
For this purpose, "Uponor is one of our main suppliers of Invisible Air Conditioning. And it is actively involved, both in the project design phase and on site", says Raimundo Giménez. "The search for maximum efficiency in the installation" was the factor that led them to choose the solutions Klett Smatrix, and the reaction of the owners of phases I and II on these systems and in general on the comfort of their homes "has been positive both at the comfort level and at the connectivity level", concludes.
Towards a new standard of comfort with AEDAS Homes

Rational and consistent distribution of spaces to facilitate daily use
Use of quality construction materials and systems
Households with optimal thermal-acoustic conditions for maximum comfort at home
Flexibility in the construction of some homes to make them unique
Fostering integration to remove architectural barriers
Optimization of natural materials for sustainable construction
Efficient use of energy
Perfect integration in the geographical and urban environment in which the house is located
Excellent interior and exterior qualities with a very careful design
First promotion with underfloor heating with voice assistant
AEDAS Homes became 2018 in the first developer in Spain to offer the first underfloor heating and cooling controlled by voice. "It was precisely in Escalonia I with the aim of uniting technology and user experience to provide our promotions with maximum comfort. Technology and innovation is essential in any field, but in the building process it has been gaining weight in recent years. In addition, it should be noted that it is a key element on the road to the industrialization and sustainability of housing", comment Raimundo Giménez.
A promotion that also became a teaching center
ADEDAS Homes developed its Sustainability Classroom within the Escalonia project with the aim of showing and teaching the characteristics that make a residential development a benchmark in technological advances, where energy use and savings in housing are promoted, among others. In this space, for example, they taught how to read an energy label and explained what systems such as double-flow ventilation, geothermal, aerothermal or underfloor heating and cooling consist of.
The phenomenon of industrialization of the building sector
In AEDAS Homes they have the commitment to implement total or partial industrialization in 25% of the homes from 2023. "This is one of the objectives that we have and have acquired in our 2021/2023 Strategic Plan. For this reason, we want to become a 100% sustainable promoter and be the pioneers in the sector. We want to contribute to the Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) being really the paradigm to follow", concludes Raimundo Giménez.
