AYMA MINING SOLUTIONS OPENS ITS NEW OFFICE IN MADRID
We don’t know the meaning of barriers. If our slogan is We help you go beyond your limits, how could we not also strive to go beyond our own? AYMA Mining Solutions opens its new office in Madrid, offering a range of professional services for AYMA and taking it into a new field: construction, particularly industrial construction.
Our new office is directed by Bernardo Gómez Delgado, project manager and Andalusian architect with more than fifteen years of experience developing projects in the construction, urban planning, civil and industrial engineering sectors. He has worked on projects in Spain, Peru, Santo Domingo, Mexico, Colombia, Jordan, and Morocco, and some of his buildings are known to be among the best European architecture. A major project he completed for the Public Port Authority of Andalusia was the remodeling of the Terrón (Lepe) or Centerario Park fishing port and marina, sponsored by the Port Authority of Algeciras and constructed by Acciona.
In the industrial and mining sectors, he has worked on a variety urban projects, implementing mining activities in Andalusian communities and the facilities at the TECNOMA laboratory (now part of TYPSA) in Mairena del Aljarafe. For four years, he was in charge of building design in the industrial department at OHL, working on projects related to oil and gas, mining and cement, and renewable energies. Noteworthy EPC projects he completed for AYMA include the factory Ecocementos in Colombia, the thermo-solar plant Arenales in Morón de la Frontera, and the re-pumping station Degollado in Mexico.
The AYMA office in Madrid will now be responsible for aligning construction activities with client needs, combining experience gained using the latest technology.
Three words define the character of the office: versatility, innovation, and experience.
Versatility in a changing world
It is an undeniable fact that we live in a constantly changing environment. Knowing how to get around in this environment requires constant observation and thinking outside the limits of our comfort zone in order to get the most out of each situation. According to AYMA’s director, this is the everyday attitude at the new office in Madrid. The office itself is a great example of this attitude. Located in Madwork, a modern and dynamic co-working, it is an open space without cubicles or closed rooms that waxes and wanes, adapting to the needs of each moment, with the best team of professionals that respond to each situation. The internal workflow follows an agile model, going above the top-down organizational structure. Clients are present during all phases of the project, working side by side with the team during the entire development process of the final product.
Innovation as core value
AYMA chooses innovative tools and methods to guarantee the best results for their projects. Choosing digitalization is clear. BIM methodology is the basis of projects in construction and allows us to work with data rather than designs. Digitalization – another characteristic of the company is paper-free – allows for tracking all the information about a specific project, as well as cross-platform search. Additionally, it provides access to information from anywhere, which is in accordance with transparent, collaborative, and remote workplace policies that will be implemented in the office.
Another important effort is continuous research, which is necessary in order to apply technological advances to the workplace on a day to day basis. This is why the team performs lines of research that don’t directly apply to the projects we are developing, but ones that optimize the way we work in our office and open new doors of opportunity.
One of these doors of opportunity is opened through virtual and augmented reality, which allows us to make use of the models we have already used in the engineering phase and use them in the construction, operation, and maintenance phases. As a demonstration, in the inauguration of the AYMA office in Madrid the attendees were able to see projects carried out using VR.
Technology + Experience
We combine both innovation and the experience of having completed projects in different sectors in the world of construction. This experience has provided us with the big picture, which allows us to anticipate problems long before they occur, to prioritize what we know is important, and to ensure that expectations are fulfilled.
A well-known slogan in 1995 stated that power is nothing without control. Today, we can say that technological innovation is nothing without profound knowledge of the sector to which you are applying it. Adapting is crucial in order to achieve higher productivity, reduce errors, save money, and improve construction processes. It is clear to us that in order to do so, experience is fundamental.
New problem-solving tools and the experience to know how to foresee problems before they happen.
