Corporate Culture

 

Our company constantly grows and evolves. It changes and responds to external and internal influences; that’s why we think our culture is our genetic code.

Our team are our best assets, they make us stand out from the competition, and as a company, we pride ourselves on working with passion, respect, honesty and integrity.

Equality, inclusion and diversity bring us many challenges, skills, experiences, ideas and perspectives. Our strategy goes beyond the legal compliance, we take our differences as part of our strength.

Our Values

At Casafabrica, we are committed to values that define who we are and what we stand for. These help us chart a path for the future, and remind us of  who we are in the present. These values support our vision, they shape our culture, and unite our team and clients.

Sustainable Conservation

 

We share a responsibility to help preserve areas of historical significance, which enrich lives and create a connection to the community, past, present and to the future.

In doing so, we have an opportunity to bring in change by incorporating sustainable building designs and construction practices which create structures, and use processes that are environmentally responsible, and resource efficient.

Our role at Casafabrica is not just to understand the social, cultural and economic relevance of existing buildings, or to celebrate their heritage, but to add value in terms of design, materials, and work towards sustainable conservation!
