POLICY AND PRACTICE OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

POLICY AND PRACTICE OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY Arenas & Asociados, founded by Professor J.J. Arenas, is

Arenas & Asociados, founded by Professor J.J. Arenas, is specialized in signature urban bridges and special structures, and it continues to prove it over the years with its designs.

All of our work is dominated by the search of the highest level of formal expressivity and aesthetic values, based on the functionality and resistance of the chosen structural schemes. We develop conceptual, engineering and architectural designs, from its first draft through the following stages of the project and project management, up to the end of site construction.

We are committed to achieve the maximum quality in every work we do, no matter the size of the challenge, and this exigency is reached only based on day to day continuous and persistent work and faithfulness to the principles of our policy, which lie in the search of quality itself. What is the meaning of quality when applied to bridges? The meaning of this word is a concept that necessarily rests on a broad base of structural soundness, and that is made up of different purposes, like high internal integration of its members, clear geometry, good proportions, optimum internal rhythms, etc. These are internal values that a new construction must offer by itself, but other essential values like its integration in the particular landscape, and the respectful consideration to the history and traditions of the site should be added from the very start.

Our design approach is based on the concept of Structural Architecture* defined by Professor Arenas, and implies the careful design of everyone its constituent members looking for their bests from and performance, as the last and unavoidable task to be made. So, it is true that the beauty of the bridge must rest on its structural soundness, but at the same time, structural soundness does not guarantee by itself any kind of aesthetic values in the finished work. The designer must search the beauty of the bridge with full consciousness, interest, perseverance, and honesty. Honesty referring to the authenticity of the designed bridge.

As a result we firmly believe in the geometric pureness and the structural soundness derived from the practice of Structural architecture as the basic quality for a good design but also as the tool helping us to offer projects with significant and original values, and finally, with authentic cultural and artistic significance.

*Structural Architecture

Art of conceiving and organizing engineering constructions in order to reach highest level of resisting functionality and formal expressiveness. The conditions for a project to be considered Structural Architecture (SA) are the authenticity and structural meaning of its shapes, together with the aesthetical care for details. As SA if based in structural concepts and puts value into resisting mechanisms, the scientific education of the engineer seems indispensable to practice it.

Final sense of SA is to integrate the work engineers in the humanist culture in search for beauty and harmony, inserting itself in today's landscape and environmental consciousness stream. Honesty forbids justifying fancy caprice projects, or forced and unnecessarily striking constructions, as results of SA. This conception demands, unquestionably, a superior project effort, and no routine. But, on the other hand, the resulting cost paid by society to construct the work conceived under this spirit, does not have to be greater than that of works born out of projects undertaken with no particular excelling spirit.

Juan José Arenas de Pablo. June 2004.
