ISD pays particular attention to the search for solutions to obtain the best performance by combining project specifications with suitable materials and cutting-edge production processes, always keeping weights and design under control.

3D Modelling

We create 3D models for almost every type of request, from finite element analysis, to the definition of spaces for the creation of systems and furnishings, refurbishment and improvement of fittings and products through 3D laser scanning.

Problem solving

Problem Solving is an everyday job, we search the structured method to deal with. We operate ensuring compliance with the agreed costs, times and quality for customer satisfaction.

The projects are carried out with forefront analysis programs, such as FEA and CFD programs and solid modeling software in a multi-user environment. Furthermore, Innovative Structural Design provides comprehensive projects with maximum attention to details. Also provides any kind of authority certification required and the construction method used by the customer.

Innovative Structural Design has an external team to support addicional work required and offers an efficient and dynamic team to meet any customer’s needs.
