SCHEME AND DETAILED DESIGN OF INSTALLATIONS
Developing installation projects for building, ranging from basic engineering, preparing a description and basic development of solutions, to detailed engineering, drawing up reports and technical plans, as well as comprehensive calculations of the installations. Mechanical engineering
We carry out the design and analysis of several elements, such as thermal, hydraulic, transportation and manufacturing machinery, as well as ventilation systems, among other applications. We develop projects in the fields of engineering whose goal is construction, renovation, repair, maintenance, demolition, manufacture, installation, assembly or use of: structures, mechanical equipment, energy facilities, installations and industrial plants. Air-conditioning, heating and ventilation
We take care of the air conditioning in any construction, in order to endure it has a constant temperature and humidity. We control the temperature in any building with the most innovative heating and ventilation systems. The latter are responsible for renewing the air inside a building by extracting or injecting air. The aim of the ventilation systems is to ensure the cleanliness of the breathable air; the healthiness of the air; protecting certain areas from pathogens that may penetrate via the air; decreasing the concentrations of gases or particles to levels suitable for operating machinery or installations, among other aspects. Clean rooms
We specialise in the assembly of technical installations, such as clean rooms, mainly employed in the following sectors: pharmaceutics, food, micro-electronics and cosmetics. We provide our installation and maintenance service to any industry which, because of its unique characteristics, requires a special attention in the finishings or during the construction process. During the construction of clean rooms for laboratories or hospitals, etc., special attention needs to be paid to the level of the finishings for the installations, and it is at this point in which JSS Efficient Enginnering stands out. Plumbing, sanitation, medical gases, fuels and compressed air
We specialise in the installation, maintenance and repair of water pipes and those for other fluids, as well as other sanitary and heating services in buildings. We take care of installing sanitation processes that are used to evacuate waste water produced as a result of human activity inside an inhabited space. We also manage the treatment of medical gases, fuels and compressed air. Fire detection and extinguishing
We equip buildings with an automatic fire detection system, made up of elements capable of detecting fire without human intervention, emitting a signal that activates the alarm so that the occupants of the premises have time to evacuate and avoid personal injury. It is crucial that the buildings have a set of measures in place to protect them against the effects of fire. In general, with these the aim is to: save human lives and minimise the economic losses produced by the fire. The basic measures against fire can be classified into two types: passive measures: these are the measures that affect the project or to the construction of the building, in the first instance, facilitating the evacuation of the users present in the event of fire, via routes (corridors and stairs) of sufficient width, and secondly, delaying and confining the action of the fire so that it does not spread very quickly or stops before it invades other areas. And also active measures: primarily appearing in the form of fire extinguishing installations. Electrical engineering
Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies, specifically, the principles of thermodynamics, mechanics, fluid mechanics and structural analysis, for the design and analysis of a variety of elements used in the present day, such as machinery for various purposes (thermal, hydraulic, transport, manufacture), as well as in ventilation systems, and air, maritime and terrestrial motor vehicles, among other applications. At JSS Efficient Enginnering we develop projects in the fields of engineering whose goal is construction, renovation, repair, conservation, demolition, manufacture, installation, assembly or use of: structures, mechanical equipment, energy installations in buildings, etc. Electricity
The electrical energy from power stations is distributed to centres for transforming high-voltage into low voltage via distribution networks. JSS Efficient Enginnering carries out complex electrical installations in various urban buildings of all kinds: industrial, civil works, public and private service buildings, among others. Photovoltaic energy
Photovoltaic solar energy is the direct transformation of solar radiation into electricity. This transformation occurs in devices called photovoltaic panels. In these panels, solar radiation excites the electrons in a semiconductor device, generating a small potential difference. Connecting these devices in series makes it possible to obtain large potential differences. JSS Associates is responsible for installing integrated solar panels on roofs, flat roofs, in industrial buildings or in public buildings. Building management systems: BMS systems
We use the term Centralised Technical Building Management System (CTBMS) or ‘Building Management Systems’ (BMS) to describe those systems that allow us to manage and supervise the various existing installations in a building in an integrated manner in order to achieve the conditions of comfort desired at any given time efficiently and accurately, and that in case of problems in the installations, send us the corresponding alarms (or warnings) so that the maintenance service is aware of the problem and able to act appropriately. Therefore the CTBMS includes the machinery and software equipment and installations that make up the technical installations in a building: air conditioning, hot water, lighting, vertical/horizontal transport, fire detection, network analysers, energy meters, etc. Special installations
We install all those systems, equipment, devices, technologies and eco-technologies which are implemented in order to complement the total performance of a building and that are aimed at meeting the needs of: telephony, intercommunications, cooling, comfort, functionality, security/safety, emergency issues, irrigation, fire, air conditioning systems, home automation pre-installation, home automation central unit installation, touch screen, technical safety, etc. Voice and data communication network security
We define and supervise the procedures for installing, configuring and maintaining a communications network to provide voice, data and multimedia services to users and to integrate the resources offered by the transmission and switching systems.
ENVIRONMENTAL LICENCE ACTIVITY PROJECTS
We take care of managing these types of projects, signed by our technicians, technical architects or industrial technical engineers. This is a documentation needed in order to obtain the corresponding municipal licence, which will allow the opening of a business, and the exercise and operation of the activity in a particular premises or enclosure. This document provides proof that both the establishment, the facilities envisaged, the design of the premises, and the carrying out of the activity conform to the corresponding rules and regulations. The Activity Project includes all the rules applicable, depending on the case. It needs to be processed prior to the Works Project, in the event of having to prepare the premises for installing the activity, in order to avoid any inconsistencies between the project and its execution. Should the premises be in conditions to carry out the activity, or if the activity does not require any type of work in order to be started up, the documentation will be submitted one month before the start of the activity.
We conduct self-protection plans (SPP), by means of which we evaluate the emergencies that may occur in a particular centre or building, both as a result of its own activity and as a consequence of any natural hazards and public disasters that may affect it, and accordingly establish a set of necessary measures designed to prevent or control these, thereby defining an appropriate response to these emergencies.
INSTALLATION SITE SUPERVISOR For all the installation jobs we carry out site supervision and safety coordinator tasks in order to ensure that the expectations of the Client-Developer are met. The site supervisor is the agent who, as part of the project management, directs the development of the work with regard to technical, aesthetic, environmental and urban planning matters, in accordance with the project that defines it, the building licence and other compulsory authorisations and conditions of the contract, in order to ensure that they are in line with the end proposed. Technical Management We take on the technical role of directing the material execution of the work and controlling the construction work qualitatively and quantitatively as well as the quality of what has been built. We carry out: studies and analysis of projects, management of material, qualitative-quantitative control, refocusing checks, integral monitoring and views of the actions together with the company carrying out the work in order to ensure that the work is carried out in conformity with the final project, PEIS verification, starting up installations, operating tests, quality control, security and safety checks in accordance with the regulations controlling the construction work, decision making/instructions , economic control, etc. Executive management. Planning and costs We carry out the function of executive management, controlling the faithful interpretation of plans and of the technical documentation that forms part of the project, and reviewing and issuing the certificates corresponding to payments for the work in progress, including the final adjustment of these payments. We also implement an effective methodology, adopted frequently, in order to carry out an effective control of costs, such as the analysis of the value gained by allowing a temporary economic control of the project, considering the economic repercussions caused by a delay in the deadline. Any variations, both in time and in cost, with regard to the scheduled planning, need to be corrected as soon as possible, so that the project can meet its planned objectives. In order to calculate these variations, three basic variables are defined: Budgeted cost of the planned value (PV); Budgeted cost of work carried out or earned value (EV) and actual cost of work carried out (AC). Quality Control of the installations Our team of technicians specialises in quality control during the construction, and will be at your side at every phase of the project. The great complexity of a project causes the critical points in which quality can be affected to multiply. Control of these points requires the dedication of staff and may present a risk for planning, yet its importance should not be underestimated, since defects that remain undetected can cause major damage in the future. For this reason, our control services help to ensure the end result of the project executed. We will provide support at all times with the development of quality control activities such as: the drafting and monitoring of a quality control plan and inspection points; the receipt on site and documentary control of materials and equipment; the supervision of quality control tests for materials and validation of results; the follow up to the implementation; certification of the progress of the work and the review for the final receipt of the work. Commissioning the installations We perform commissioning tasks and quality processes, focused on verifying and documenting that the installations and systems are planned, designed, installed, tested, used and maintained in accordance with the requirements of the owner in the Project. Our commissioning services are: carrying out Commissioning in order to obtain the prerequisites or requirements in the certification of sustainable buildings, such as in the LEED or BREAM; commissioning work in buildings, in which, the property owner requires an assurance that their initial objectives and requirements are present from the start of the project design, during construction, commissioning as well as in the functioning and operation of the building; work of re-commissioning and retro-commissioning existing buildings in order to ensure that they function effectively, efficiently and optimally, and lastly, measurements and checks of the installations, support in starting up the installations in order to ensure that these function in accordance with the requirements of the project.
LEGALISING THE INSTALLATIONS
Our technical team carries out a set of inspections, verifications and checks to ensure compliance with the current regulations. This procedure is called legalisation of the installation. Currently, any installation that have been carried out, or in the case of pre-existing installations that require putting in order for administrative purposes, whether an electrical installation, air conditioning, fire detection and extinguishing, plumbing, solar, etc., must always be supervised and checked by a technician.
At JSS Efficient Enginnering we apply Building Information Modelling (BIM). This is the process of generating and managing data regarding the building during its life cycle, using dynamic building modelling software in three dimensions and in real time, in order to reduce wasting time and resources in the design and construction. This process produces an extensive information model, including the geometry of the building, its spatial relationships, geographic information, as well as the quantities and the properties of its components.
