Our history

The ISTRAM ® products family is and has been developed in a business environment where different professionals in civil engineering and information technology are involved. Nowadays, construction processes are developed by a multidisciplinary team which is reflected in our company. Our applications are developed according to the needs of our customers.

Buhodra Ingeniería, S.A. is the corporate group responsible for the financial and administrative management, which organizes the necessary human and material resources so that ISTRAM applications reaches the customer in the most professional way.

What we do

The area in which we include our applications is now called AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction); and we have inserted two more acronyms SIG / 3D, to cover the other aspects that may be part of any project. From here we recommend you visit our product section and download all the information we provide.

At the present time ISTRAM product family is represented by:

ISTRAM / ISPOL: Design and construction application for civil engineering projects.

ISTRAM / ISCEO: Application to manage the information about the quality of civil works.

ISTRAM / ISLAB: A complete and flexible solution for managing laboratory quality control.

The activity of engineers and surveyors has always demanded a tool to design and control the construction of civil engineering projects. We have relied on them to offer a software that is probably the most intuitive, versatile and powerful worldwide, the satisfaction of our customers is our best guarantee.

If you are about to purchase one of our applications is probably because someone has spoken very well of our products.

From this initial idea, ISTRAM ® has been growing to cover the widest range of features, according to the needs of the market, the introduction of quality systems and the increasing demand of management tools for any type of activity in engineering studies and construction companies.

Buhodra Ingeniería, S.A. has been carrying out several years of expansion and growth, doubling its staff and establishing sales offices in Spain and abroad. In these years the functionalities of our applications have greatly improved, reaching levels of productivity highly appreciated by our customers.

Our next technical objective is to integrate our applications in a work global environment , including the possibility of inserting multidisciplinary work teams and also they are not necessarily in the same location.

As part of this globalization, ISTRAM family will provide in a near future the appropriate tool to carry out each and every one of the engineering and management elements involved in each phase of a civil engineering work. All in the same working environment without having several application disconnected from each other .
