Overview

About us

CTA is a public-private partnership made up of more than 165 companies to promote innovation and technology transfer. CTA Construction and Civil Engineering is promoting innovation in the sector to increase competitiveness.

Sustainability is one of the key challenges facing a sector in which the principal areas of innovation include the use of intelligent technology in buildings and inhabited spaces (smart infrastructures; Building Information Modelling – BIM, etc.), as well as the optimisation of the consumption of resources throughout a building’s entire life cycle (materials, energy) and the minimising of environmental impact.

CTA Construction and Civil Engineering is made up of representatives of the triple helix:
