My name is Mateo de Guadalfajara, I am a young engineer and I want a job in architecture/engineering �irm that believes as me that the future of construction, architecture

and urbanism comes by the hand of mixed teams between architects and engineers that together may answer the big questions about how we live and how we have to live without consuming the resources of future generations.

I started engineering eight years ago because I was very kind in school in Maths and Physics and I didn´t have an speci�ic vocation. Since I started this career I have dedicated many time

studying and reading �inding my path. I have read: Asimov, Bukowsky, Tom Wolfe, Tom Sharpe, Jack London, Vargas Llosa, Cortazar and also books about engineering architecture and urbanism from Richard Rogers, Rem Koolhas, Norman Foster, Mies Van der Rohe and others.

In my forth year of engineering I started to focus more and more in constructions cause I had a

very interesting course about industrial constructions. The following year I did a Master in Sweden (in Erasmus program) about energy systems for constructions. I think that exists a big

�ield to work about energy ef�iciency in buildings and I wanted to learn from a country like Sweden that has very low temperatures in winter and know so much about energy ef�iciency.

In Sweden I learned a lot about energy systems, consume of energy, auditory, optimization...

and also about simulation tools to design new systems and check them before building them. With this knowledge I have performed several projects in Spain about low consume buildings and about estimation of energy needs for big buildings.

Now that I have �inished my studies I want to start to work in a team with people that want to build the future. That want to build houses with low energy consume and high comfort, that

want to use the adequate renewable source for each case and that want to do things because they care about solutions.

I would like to work with you. Thanks,

Mateo de Guadalfajara

As new materials and technology appeard, architects with engineers where able to design and build tall buildings and skyscrapers generating the new cities of the world with the highest population and job density that the world have ever met.





This new structures come from architects and engineers that wanted to pass over the convencionalism and create huge towers as the Eiffel tower or to use new materials from the mixing of iron and concrete.

Good Insulation Passive Measures NEW technologies

This new century comes with a new challenge. This change will be the energetical change. It is necessary to create a new way of construction with a lower energy consume along the full life cycle of the buildign. This means that new buildings needs more insulation, new ventilation systems, new heatign and cooling systems, passive measures to reduce energy needs, a low consume design...

Architecture is changing and green budings are the new fashion but it is not enough to put green walls and green covers it is needed that also the inside and the design is low consume, low emissions and low cost.

December 2010

The energy department of Zaragoza University had a project about simulations of hospitals and buildings from the third sector to design then better cogeneration equipments. This project was performed with eQuest software > Heating energy demand: 40,6 Kw/h m2 year > DHW energy demand: 12,9 Kw/h m2 year > Cost of a gas heater: 700 €/house > Transport heat losses: 10% > Number of houses: 10.000

> Location: Valdespartera, Zaragoza, Spain

It is possible to introduce a District Heating system in Spain for DHW and Heating? Which ef�iciency does it have? How much is it ? Rentability?Return period?

In the Industrial Construction department we develope a low consume house for a client that wanted to have a Passive House in the North of Spain. This house will be designed with very high insulation and ventilation system with heat exchanger. The result is a low consumo house with high comfort in summer and winter. kWh/m2 year

For projects subject in Engineering me and a group of students prepare a project of day care center for APASCIDE. This center has been builted from and old �lat in Zaragoza. The experience was big for working in a non pro�it association for people with special needs

Apascide, asociation for relatives and friends of blind-deaf people, order us to prepare with Architect Sancho España the remodelation of an old center into an addapted for blind deaf people care day center. Also we introduce into the center tratements and equipment for the education of people with multisensorial problems The center has been built in 2010 with the monetary help of the council and the spanish Government.

For 6 Months, I could investigate about jets in KTH research school. My master thesis was a project about ventilation by jet in rooms. The results of the project are being used in other projects and thesis about ventilation and �luid simulations.

To see the full thesis: Jet expansion

Jet Collision with lateral walls

The results shows how to design ventilation systems in rooms to get the best mixing of the air with a lower consume of energy. Also shows how to avoid draughts in a the living area of a room. The jet collision with a lateral surface produce an aire tendency to move around a vertical axis and also generates draughts in the habitable zone. This kind of ventilation orientation is not suitable for spaces where people works because it will increases the effect of the sick building syndrome.
