The V edition of the Civil Engineering Week in Madrid (Sicma) organized by the College of Civil Engineers of Madrid on a biennial basis with the aim of showing citizens the work and progress of this profession. This edition, whose motto is “We innovate to move forward”, will be held from 1 to 6 October in Madrid with the collaboration of 60 companies and institutions, in addition to the engineers and volunteers themselves who give up their time to participate in the different activities.
In this edition, Sicma’s central event will be the installation in Plaza de Callao of “El túnel de la innovación”, a free exhibition in which citizens will be able to see and touch, among other things, innovative materials, as well as autonomous underground drones. On the other hand, it will show how the oscillation of buildings is monitored in the event of earthquakes and it will be possible to see, among other things, the model of a city of the future, real pieces that are used in large cable-stayed bridges or to discover advanced facial recognition systems.
Under the slogan “We innovate to move forward” will be held from 1 to 6 October

Callao Plaza Geodesic Dome in Madrid is our model G150, with a diameter of 14m and an area of 154m2.
Our dome has the Premium Floor system with a self-balanced system in the interior perimeter of the floor.
The premium floor allowed us to level the almost 80 cm unevenness of the Plaza de Callao.
