CEEF achieves a turnover between 700k€ & 1000k€ and employs 4 qualified engineer and technicians who work on specific operations.
The specificity of our company is our ability to intervene for a large number of missions both in renovation and in buildings construction, and thus take part in the development of the facades’ concept until the definition of the constructive details, very often specialized, that ensue.
From the diagnosis of the existing building, for project ownership or project management assistance throughout conception studies or material researches, CEEF is positioned both on window systems and curtain walls, and on facades, skylights or porches.
CEEF contributes to enhance experience on issues that require advanced know-how and high technology.
Because nowadays, and no matter what buildings emerge (towers, offices, housing, hospitals, schools, museums,…); issues related to outer shells are becoming very important either for the aesthetic quality of the building or for energy efficiency considerations.
Recommendations in terms of HQE® (High Environmental Quality certification) and our willingness to fit into the sustainable development conditions imply evolution in the choice of materials and techniques we advise, which are the main sources of energy savings.
