DESIGN AND ENGINEERING STUDIES & PRODUCTION

ATELIERS PUZZLE provides ENGINEERING AND DESIGN SERVICES for cultural and artistic projects.

From primary sketches to project execution plans, our team draws on its understanding of artistic creation to supply a reliable and technical solution, adapted to the needs of each project.

By its very nature, every creation we implement is a unique prototype which requires a thorough analysis of differents constructive options , an analysis of regulatory requirements, the consideration of set-up constraints on the site, and compliance to safety and technical monitoring issues.

ATELIERS PUZZLE also acts as an ART FABRICATOR with a specific construction insurance, which allows us to support our entrusted creation’s full réalisation.

Our team ensures continuity and consistency every step of the way : choice of materials, structural studies and calculations, prototypes, workshop fabrication, transport logistics, set-up teams and set-up management.
