Elema: Structural Glass Wall Engineering

Founded by consulting engineers who are passionate and specialized in designing innovative building structures, ELEMA refines the art of an open and communicative approach based on team cooperation, with our personnel as well as with our clients and other construction professionals. Rich with a proven experience of varied achievements, ELEMA is at the forefront of the industry to give life to the most ambitious creations in concretesteelengineered woodaluminum and structural glass.

Our philosophy aligns with our interdisciplinary team’s self-attributed mission : to respond irreproachably to the intrinsic and architectural finesse of each of our structural mandates.

ELEMA’s goal is to provide to our clients and partners elegant, innovative and optimized structural solutions that integrate an exceptional quality at every step of the project.

We advocate a parametric design approach using a programming environment to explore the design space and characterize the model response as a function of intent using iterative computation.

Parametric design allows engineers and architects to collaborate to develop meaningful solutions with reduced cost and embodied carbon, while taking into account architectural constraints.

We also use artificial intelligence to explore complex and unintuitive geometries while increasing structural efficiency through the use of stochastic algorithms. Further, through the use of machine learning, our previous projects inform the design at the conceptual stages in order to obtain a preliminary sizing normally available later in the process and thus allow better coordination with the different disciplines.

We tailor our services to our client’s specific needs in terms of logistics and availability. One of our core values is also to encourage verbal communication in order to ensure that our understanding of the project’s complexities and subtleties is accurate. We also pride ourselves in being readily available via our direct lines or emails.

We always approach each mandate with the clear objective to build a solid long-term relationship with our clients based on trust and accountability.

In short, we’re dedicated to offering our clients top-quality engineering services on every project, regardless of their scale.
