TEAM

Values

SINCE 2008 STARCHING HAS ADOPTED A BIM METHODOLOGY IN ALL THE COMPANY’S ACTIVITIES, MAKING THIS FEATURE ITS COMPETITIVE STRENGTH.
IN 2017, IT BECAME THE FIRST COMPANY IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN AND COORDINATION OF SPECIALIZED DESIGNS TO CERTIFY ITS OWN BIM MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, ACCORDING TO THE ICMQ TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION.

In this perspective, the team of designers at Starching can rely on a ‘BIM Research and Development Department’ tasked with investigating new methods and technologies, implementing and fine-tuning software usage within the company, creating and enhancing BIM workflows and internal and external standards, constantly enriching the services offered to tackle increasingly complex and intricate projects.

Aware of the impact that the construction sector has on the environment, society, and economy, in 2015 Starching started a process of alignment with the guidelines set forth by the United Nations through the 17 SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals.
Impact Driven Design is an approach aimed at the sustainability of architectural and urban projects, assigning the evaluation of expected impacts the role of guiding design choices.

VISION

STARCHING IS THE FIRM WHERE ARCHITECTURE AND ENGINEERING WORK SIDE BY SIDE, INTEGRATING INTO SHAPE A REALITY WHERE THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES AND GENERATIONS FOSTERS CREATIVE FLOW AND GENERATES NEW IDEAS. THE INTERDISCIPLINARY, CREATIVE, AND TECHNICAL APPROACH TRANSFORMS COMPLEXITY INTO AN ORGANIC PROJECT.

Today, designing good architecture implies combining creativity with professional and technical engineering skills. We design tangible things, engaging with physical data, materials, conditions, builders, clients, and future occupants. From the concept to realization, we value the construction process and the transformation of space.
