Terapia Urbana designs different types of living walls which act as bio filters purifying the air and at the same time become an evaporative cooling system lowering temperature and increasing humidity by forcing the air through them. When combined with the ventilation and an air conditioning system, significant energy savings are achieved.
This bioclimatic conditioning applies to businesses, industrial and residential buildings and to public spaces, and can be installed both indoors and outdoors. Our systems ensure an adequate level of temperature, humidity and air quality in buildings, preventing the "Sick Building Syndrome".
Therefore, we can make an important contribution towards the improvement of the environmental assessment and eco-efficiency of buildings, increasing the level of qualifications obtained in environmental certification systems such as LEED, BREEAM, etc.
The research, developments and innovations carried out at the University of Seville have resulted in the following Urban Greening systems:
Terapia Urbana not only designs, installs and maintains this living wall systems, but also offers specialised assistance in:
- Landscaping and gardening
- Sustainable architecture and urbanism
- Indoor Landscaping
Remote control system and automatization
To operate successfully our systems, an appropriate maintenance must be followed . Because of this and to sustain cost reductions, we utilise monitoring, failure detection and remote control systems within our living walls in order to obtain real time information regarding humidity, temperature, fertirrigation levels and irrigation pressure. Thanks to this we get saving in expenses of displacement of employees, ensuring maximum efficiency for conservation and correct operation. We use an especially software designed by Idener. This company works in collaboration with our R+D+I department to develop all of the auxiliary engineering that controls and monitors our systems.
