At the core of close-knit relationships between the client and the workshop, the project managers are attentive to the demands of each project, guiding clients step by step towards the accomplishment of a masterpiece.
They bring their in-depth understanding of alabaster to the workshop. Sculptors play with the stones’ veins and composition.

Fitting a 10-meter-high wall weighing several tons without any visible structure; assembling a visually seamless bar that resists wear; defying gravity with a suspended ceiling… Our teams perform worldwide, wherever precision is needed. Their solid experience and uncompromising rigor ensure quality, safety and durability for our customers.
