- SAALG Geomechanics’ solution would save more than 10% of the costs on civil work projects and up to 15% of the cost for foundations in large buildings with underground levels.
- Its Daarwin software enables real-time control of civil work projects, increasing safety by anticipating challenges or changes during the construction process.
BARCELONA, SPAIN. FEBRUARY 21, 2018 – CEMEX Ventures announced today its investment in SAALG Geomechanics, a Spain-based engineering startup that has developed Daarwin, a software which provides real-time analysis of the behavior of the ground during civil works and large building projects.
This is the third investment for CEMEX Ventures, CEMEX’s open innovation and venture capital unit, since its launch less than a year ago. CEMEX Ventures adds its investment to those of Mobile World Capital and Business Angels, current SAALG investors.
Based in Barcelona, Spain, SAALG Geomechanics was founded by geotechnical engineers Cristian de Santos and Ignasi Aliguer. The startup developed software called Daarwin, which provides real-time analysis of the behavior of the ground during civil work and large building projects. Through state-of-the-art Machine Learning and Real Time Data Analysis technology, it enables real-time control of civil work projects, increasing safety by anticipating potential catastrophes or substantial changes due to ground movement that are imperceptible at the beginning of the work.
