Fundación Estudios Calidad Edificación Asturias (FECEA)

The Estudios Calidad Edificación Asturias Foundation (FECEA) is a private, not-for-profit foundation that gathers in its governing board all the most important agents of the construction sector in Asturias.
The foundation is chaired by a representative of the Asturias Government, who most contributes to its budgets. Established in 1989, FECEA has acquired extensive experience on the sector since then by promoting several initiatives aimed at qualifying building systems and the use of materials, by establishing legislations, by developing a better technical and vocational training and by contributing to the improvement of local and regional policies in the area of energy and sustainability, either for buildings or for the city construction/reconstruction.
FECEA is the coordinator of the project and is responsible of the ARCAS computer tool design and development.

La Rochelle Université

One of the research axes of the Laboratoire des Sciences de l’Ingénieur pour l’Environnement (LaSIE) of La Rochelle Université (ULR) concerns quality of indoor/outdoor environments, which includes the study of adsorbent materials, energy efficiency of air conditioning systems and co-optimization of building and systems design.

Therefore, its scientific contribution to the ARCAS project is a key element for the energy efficiency of buildings and the quality control of inhabited environments.
