Strengthening supporting structures

Accurately calculated: strengthening the supporting structure with utmost accuracy

Strengthening individual supporting structural elements is often necessary when converting a building for a new purpose. Accurate work and comprehensive expertise are essential as these interventions are relevant to the building's statics. We can look back on many years of experience in the field of structural strengthening and have many corresponding references. We use CFRP, steel lamella or pre-stressed lamella to manufacture the reinforcements, enabling us to meet a wide range of different requirements. Hand laminate is used to strengthen large areas. The result: your building can be put to a new use.
