Studio Pietrangeli offers its clients a full range of engineering consultancy services during design, construction, testing and operation of its plants. SP’s staff includes international consultants in the various engineering disciplines comprising civil, mechanical and electrical engineers, economists, environmental experts, etc.
Recently, the firm has become increasingly specialized in so-called “fast-track” projects, requiring a very short time
from conception of the idea to operation of the plant.
The special innovative techniques, required for these extremely fast designs, include intense use of the most up-to-date technologies such as satellite imagery, drones, laser scanning, helicopter surveys, surface geotechnics, and the like, for investigation purposes, combined with the vast experience and the sound engineering judgement of the firm’s senior engineers.
