This project, which was developed between 2011 and 2013, established an energy rehabilitation methodology based on novel and non-intrusive techniques for the energy analysis applicable to public and private heritage buildings.
This methodology was based on energy needs analysis of this kind of buildings, the development of materials applicable to energy rehabilitation, the identification of improvement actions and the reference indexes establishment.
The project, funded by the EU via POCTEP call, was carried out by CARTIF, CTCV, RECET, and Ciudad Rodrigo foundation.

Cultural Heritage projects:
SHCITY addresses the innovative challenge of creating a unique tool to manage historic urban centers and facilitate the work of the competent authorities in decision making. SHCITY will integrate data collected by sensor networks with artificial vision and 3D scanning technologies deployed in the urban area (Ávila), in order to respond to conservation, security, energy efficiency and tourism needs.
The goal of the project called “Energy Refurbishment Methodology for Heritage Buildings” (RENERPATH-2) is to establish a specific European pre-normative, focused on the energy refurbishment of heritage buildings, whether public or private use, in parallel with the newly constructed buildings law.
In INFIT, automatic data capture systems have been developed to obtain an accurate and objective image of the tunnel surface.
Currently, inspections of road and rail tunnels are carried out manually. CARTIF and Geocisa have studied how to implement technologies that allow inspecting automatically tunnels to achieve its preventive maintenance, developing a system which is able to organize the collected data.
The PAVIREX project, “New safer pavements in extreme temperature conditions”, was co-financed by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and FEDER Funds, through the INNPACTO 2011 call. The consortium of the project is formed by CARTIF, Grupo Campezo, Euroestudios , Proas (Cepsa), Eiffage, the University of Oviedo and the University of the Basque Country.
