design of lightweight structures

We design, build, inspect, and monitor innovative lightweight structures such as:


-          Curved shells

-          Tents

-          Lightweight, wide-span roof decks

-          Wide span buildings and structures with continuous glass facades

-          Bridges


To enhance the architectural-aesthetic effect of ours designs, we pursue the following objectives:


-          Minimal weight of our designs. This allows us to minimize the use of material.

-          Maximal spans. Maximal spans result in floor areas with few or without intermediate supporting columns. In this manner, the functionality and flexibility of floor areas is enhanced.
