Industrial development and Research
Research and development is the driving force of innovation and competitiveness of any company in any market. This is a general well known principle.
Although this obviously applies to Studio Calvi as well, where a continuous effort is made to remain at the edge of the art of structural and architectural design, keeping the pace of knowledge and technology progress, the same words apply here to a different meaning.
Actually Studio Calvi does not simply apply the best available tools, but rather actively participate in science and technology developments.
Non-trivial examples of this DNA attitude are the conception and detailed development of innovative seismic isolation devices, extensively produced and applied, and the creation and implementation of survey, assessment, analysis and design tools and their combination into WEG-GIS routines.
Studio Calvi is a true think-tank and an effective link between applied research and industrial development in civil engineering.
