The most important stage in the successful completion of a project, is a proper and in-depth initial study of each case, separately. In ETEM, after over 40 years of engagement in large private and commercial projects, we have established a special team of engineers and architects to assist and work together with the Architect, the Engineer, or the Developer of a project and address all the issues regarding the structure throughout its lifespan. We believe that the quality of the building we live or work in, has a direct influence to our quality of life. Requirements in the buildings we design today extend beyond conventional adaptations. Architectural design has to coincide with energy conservation principles, safety for the user, sound and water insulation, functionality and endurance according to the use of the structure and low maintenance costs over time. We strive for our products to be inspirational for the designer but not posing limits to the creation, in its entirety. Our dedicated team remains a viable assistance to the Architect, the Engineer or the Developer, during the specification stage of the project. With our academic and technical background, in combination with our long-standing experience in project development, we support the project by defining the appropriate specifications that embody all parameters within.
It is evident that today’s building projects increase in complexity, calling for technical solutions that a few years ago would be unrealizable, if not impossible. The combination of the projects are often highly demanding, requiring a holistic and in-depth knowledge of the different building components that need to be integrated. Our solely dedicated team of Architects and Engineers, with years of practical experience and extensive training, are ready to analyze a project taking into consideration all requirements and factors, including design, functionality, energy conservation, thermal and water insulation, static compliance and more. The combination of tremendous know-how along with the experience gained over the years, are the differentiating factors that renders our team capable to analyze the project from all angles and points, then propose the most appropriate solution. Our team’s added value is their capability to integrate the ETEM solution with the surrounding building material in the project, thus guaranteeing that the end result will perform under strict specifications – an incalculable service that is greatly valued by our customers. More significantly, our role goes beyond rendering solutions based on our existing systems or solutions. The added value that we offer, is our ability to thoroughly analyze a project, identify current and unforeseeable needs and design a solution that is specially developed to cover technical, functional or even architectural design requirements for the task at hand. Starting from 1971, for the first high rise of Athens (Athens Tower) of 103m tall, the “Defense” in Paris in 1990 and the “Capital Fort” tower in Sofia, 2010 of 125m high, ETEM has been called upon to provide solid engineering answers to issues that arise and develop custom new system solutions, unique to each project.
Over time, it has become apparent that a thorough and in-depth design is fundamental for the successful completion of a project. The proper definition and synthesis of the different building components can foresee and resolve difficulties that might arise during construction. At this stage, decisions have to be quick and effective, so as to address an issue successfully. In ETEM, a significant service our Projects’ team offers is assistance to the project during the construction phase. During this stage, it is often that adaptations or modifications to the initial designs have to take place, with strict time limits, calculating costs and the pressing need to find the proper solution. Our team, with the relevant, ever-increasing experience and overall skillful technical background is there to assist the designer or developer to choose the proper solution, according to requirements. Our goal is to see a project throughout its different development stages, thus rendering a functional and according to specifications result.
