Di Ronco • Builders is a fundamental part of Di Ronco • Industries, is not a construction company, nor an architecture studio like the usual ones, it is a “digital entity” to work for the change in the way of life. This work goes beyond designing houses based simply on sustainable or bioclimatic architecture and conventional urban development. It involves art, agriculture, technology, finances, and well-being, both psychic and physical of people.

We don’t build houses, but we teach you how to build one.

We don’t project intelligent buildings a thousand meters high to have a record, such things are bad customs of the past.

We work tirelessly on the development of urban models for future generations.

We bring knowledge to those people who are not prepared to obtain the “level of urban awareness” that Planet Earth demands to survive the climatic disaster that crosses us.

We propose models of urban structures that meet the human needs of the future. The smarts cities must be developed for and by the people who inhabit them and not for the mere technological interest, nor to compete with other cities, nor to increase the bank accounts of the real estate market whales.

What do we do?

Di Ronco • Builders focuses on the development and research of self-sufficient, decentralized, and ecological urban construction methods and systems. Transcend the culture of reinforced concrete and mega skyscrapers, leave behind the massiveness of plastic and the generation of hydrocarbon-based energy resources. The paradigm shift can be a shock for people today, but new generations will not have this problem, they already demand that we now begin to change the way we live.

How do we do it?

  • Building construction based on the “passivhaus standard” is the minimum requirement to start.
  • Natural lighting, mechanical ventilation, wide and healthy environments.
  • We don’t forget the concepts of thermal transmission and energy saving, the reuse of water and, of course, permaculture.
  • The building structure is not only focused on brick, but we also think of abundant materials on the area, such as land (adobe), straw, cane, used tires, or sea containers, are some of the materials we consider relevant in our research.
  • We think that human beings not only live on the earth’s surface, but our planet is also full of water, and sea water constantly modifies the coasts. Many people and governments find it difficult to accept this event and spend energy and resources to win a piece of land from the sea. It may be lawful in certain settings, such as the port or the case of the Netherlands, but it should not be the rule to apply everywhere. In the not-too-distant future the Sea will play its chips and flood many coasts and we must be prepared. We must integrate seawater into our habitat, that is why we think and develop floating urban systems with freedom of movement, self-sufficient and beautiful (of course).

Our commitment

“Construction” is an activity that involves a great consumption of natural resources such as wood, water, and electricity; Furthermore, once built, buildings continue to pollute due to the emissions that are produced in them.

  • Our commitment is with the reuse of raw materials, as well as their efficient use; optimization of natural resources and reduction of environmental impact; the conservation of water resources and their sanitation. The study of the effects on air quality.
  • Our commitment is to the prevention and reduction of toxic emissions, as well as the care and rectification of the soil in case of contamination; waste management and treatment; and the attenuation of noise levels.
  • Our commitment to healthy food and organic farming is undeniable, we integrate urban agricultural production as a means of social cohesion and generation of local businesses.
  • Our commitment to data privacy and the integration of technology in people’s lives is very important to guarantee our individual freedom.
