  • • Our ranges and intervention procedures are pre-defined and constantly improved
  • • We systematically draft and apply prevention plans regardless of the operation

Beyond the strictest respect for French and European standards, we deploy our processes throughout the world, with teams of business experts, also knowing how to interface with local partners to maintain a maximum level of quality. Our vision: to continue to be the world reference for construction sites in hostile or demanding environments!
