This company, specialised in refurbishing old buildings and restoring historic monuments, was founded in 1997.

In 15 years, the company has accomplished a number of projects that have made the headlines in the PACA region of France: the Picasso museum in Antibes, the Forcalquier Church, the terraces and façades of the Le Corbusier building, the Palais du Pharo, the Rue de la République in Marseille Place d’Albertas in Aix-en-Provence, etc.

It has rare and complex know-how in stone cutting, which includes working on ornaments, masonry (including preparing and installing plasters and lime wash), and roofing.  

The company is unusually large for its profession, allowing it to take on big projects. It also restores and creates complex ornamentation (corbelling, rosaces).

The clientele consists mainly of institutions: French Ministry of Culture, General and Regional Councils, religious institutions. The company replies to bids for tender (Ministry of Culture, administrations and other).  

Recently, the Director won a contract to restore buildings before 2013, the year in which Marseille will be European Capital of Culture.
