OUR SERVICES AND EXPERTISE

OUR EXPERTISE

Our general expertise of integrated technologies extends the Conception / Management / Delivery with BIM (Building Information Modeling) to more sophisticated building techniques. Parametric and associative modelization, File-To-Factory et File-To-Machine processes.

Additive Manufacturing & Processes

There are many applications  as Mobile or embedded 3D printing micro-factories // Multi-material design-to- fabrication printing software // New construction materials made of sand, clay and cement. (BAPA : Build Anywhere-Produce Anywhere, fabrication near-site, pre-fabrication far-site, construction on- site, Prototype and mockups scale 1:1…)

Distributed & Modular Robotics

Applications as Base system for mobile robots // Temporary structures for intervention and bridging circulation // Cartography and volumic diagnostics on interior and exterior sites.

Co-botics & Neurodesign

Collaborative robotic // Intelligence Human- to-Machine // Applied neurosciences to digital conception and fabrication //  New tools and carriers in AEC.

Augmented and Virtual Reality

Technological survey and R&D // Augmented reality and virtual reality technological intelligence and applications research.
