The worthy heir of several generations of carpenters, our company was founded in 1957 in Thouars in the Deux-Sèvres department. Today it is closely associated with the restoration of the finest buildings of French heritage. Woodworking excellence is at the heart of our business.
Our skills are demonstrated during restorations, in identical repairs and in creations where we offer high-quality bespoke execution, tailored to each building. Our work goes into enhancing castles, fine properties, luxury residences, private apartments, churches and historical monuments, in France and abroad.
We want to share with you our human skills, the fruit of daily, uncompromising work, and put it to use it in your projects. We invite you to take a look at our work and discover our expertise. We hope that you will entrust us with your future projects and we are certain that we will meet your expectations.
Our traditional skills are certified by reputed qualifications organisations and complemented by the most recent technological innovations, to be able to offer you a superior work force and a high-quality, high-end service.
Our know-how, in particular, is certified by the various carpentry and joinery qualifications awarded by Qualibat (2314, 2393, 2313, 4313, 4333, 4352, 4393).
We are anxious to pass on the know-how inherited from the craftsmen of past centuries. To maintain the prestige of French architecture, journeymen and young apprentices are placed in the care of the older craftsmen who teach them their traditional methods passed down from previous generations.
We support all initiatives in favour of heritage preservation (our company is EPV accredited and is part of the Historical Monuments Grouping) so that the monuments will continue to tell their story.
An environmental approach and sustainable development are central to our concerns and are taken into account at each stage of our activity, in particular through the respect of energy standards and the traceability of our supplies.
The wood that we use is PEFC certified to ensure the sustainability of forests.
Our engineering design office is also trained in calculating energy performance and making energy savings (FEEBAT and RGE).
