Experience feedback

The opinion of David DANGER, Construction Engineer at VSB Energies Nouvelles

The Gard Chamber of Agriculture commissioned us for 3 of its buildings. The Ital-Solar mounting system was chosen for the offices and archives, two existing buildings with a cover in dry boxes. And the Kogysun i+ fixing system was used for the new building (sandwich panels) with the function of selling local products as well as catering.

With 3 different iron deck for this project, the complexity was very present. Fortunately Dome Solar design office has been able to adapt and be a real support for us. Indeed, it was necessary to validate this project upstream by a control office and Ioannis (BE Engineer) was present until the final approval of our project.

The Dome Solar Cons

  • Comprehensive layout plans

The fact of receiving drawings dedicated to our project directly realized by your design office is a real asset. The precision of your documents allows us a considerable time saving since we know immediately where each rail must come to rest.

  • Reactivity

Your sales department is very dynamic! And when our deadlines are very short, your services (commercial, design office, purchasing & logistics) make every effort to respond in time.

  • Physical assistance for the starting of the construction site

Especially for the handling of the Kogysun i + fastening system, the presence of one of your employees was really welcome to understand the details of this fastening system.
