Our passion and drive have been instrumental to the success of numerous projects both domestically and all around the world.
All of those projects have different characteristics, different background stories and different specific requirements.
But each and every one of them embodies our whole experience.
They are all unique.
From industrial hangars to high-bay warehouses, from bold suspension bridges to glass skyscrapers in the world’s largest cities, we have realised more than 2000 projects over the years.
The following selection showcases our various areas of competence.

Roots in the region
The expansion and redesign of the headquarters of Italy’s leading manufacturer of household gas heaters embodies the company’s core values: continuous innovation and a deep love for the region. This construction project, the result of a consolidation process, involved a reduction of the production facilities with the intention of boosting synergies with the Emilia-Romagna region in which the company is based. Drawn up by the architecture firm EFA from Parma, the building plans preserve and highlight the architectural history of the existing building while enhancing its geometry.
The new corporate headquarters comprises three building complexes: two separate sections connected by a stairwell, which contains the main entrance to the building, and a third section, two stories tall, which also connects the streamlined building complexes. Metal cladding consisting of an alternating structure of sandwich panels and sheet metal coverings conjure up a fascinating spectacle of light and shadow, making the monolithic two-story building visually striking. The curtain walls are made from a grid of right-angled intersecting posts and beams forming modules of different sizes. The façade of the production area measures 320 square metres, that of the warehouse and office complex spans 158 square metres.
In the planning phase, the architects opted for a portal structure made from a row of reinforced-concrete columns and connecting beams with an enormous span in order to create an open and flexible space. This approach reduces the complexity of the design, making each building easily identifiable in terms of its specific function.
