Neolith and the UIC Barcelona LITEIS Research Group Have Created a Strategic Alliance

The global leading sintered stone brand, Neolith, and the UIC Barcelona LITEIS research group have formed a strategic alliance to boost a sophisticated research agenda aimed at achieving more innovation and sustainability in architecture, both in housing as well as architectural heritage.
Barcelona; June 1, 2022 – Neolith and the UIC Barcelona LITEIS research group have signed a collaboration agreement to do research in innovative and sustainable architectural façades. Present at the signing ceremony were José Luis Ramón, CEO of Neolith Group, David Bueno, Chief Transformation Officer for Neolith, Dr. Alfonso Méndiz, Dean of UIC Barcelona and Vicenç Sarrablo, Chair of the UIC School of Architecture, as well as professors Jordi Roviras and Cristina García Castelao, also from UIC.

The goal with this alliance is to make progress in improving and applying new developments to the new unalterable and sustainable architectural shapes that provide continuous insulation and block direct sunlight. This will lead to significant energy savings with proposals that are resistant to changes in temperature, inalterability with the passing of time and 100% natural materials.
The LITEIS research group is an important reference in academics and one of its objectives includes the innovation and development of new construction systems capable of meeting today’s sustainability and industrialization needs in home architecture and architectural heritage.

In the words of José Luis Ramón, CEO of Neolith Group, “Our group is constantly evolving, researching and developing new technologies. Being on the cutting edge is a part of our DNA and this alliance will allow us to continue fostering solutions that meet consumers’ needs. We want to keep inspiring and creating bright and bold spaces that are enjoyed to the fullest. We want to create sustainable buildings and spaces so that we can live in new cities. We want to work responsibly with society and build a future for everyone and if on top of that we can save energy, then we all win.”

On the other hand, the Dean of UIC Barcelona, Alfonso Méndiz, stated that at the University, “We are very much aligned with the Neolith spirit and it’s a source of satisfaction to be able to collaborate with a company with which we share distinctive attributes such as a commitment to innovation and sustainability.”
