Focus on building materials
Building with arches, vaults and cupolas highlights the potential of the building materials used. Demonstration structures and designs allow their quality to be illustrated and their credibility amongst the public to be reinforced. This can strongly counterbalance resistance to new materials in the marketplace.
Focus on enterprises
Because it calls for technical knowledge and skills, which non-professionals always find impressive, it also focuses on the enterprises involved and confers upon them a favorable quality image.
The quality of a building depends on the quality of the basic materials and of the building work. The durability of the structure will be linked to surface protection or water-proofing being carried out well. To ensure the quality and durability of the building, the contractor should carefully control site supplies and work. In addition, the client should be informed about any required maintenance of the surface protection, frequency and technique.
Launching into building with arches, vaults and cupolas can open new markets, public or private, especially if the launch takes place in conjunction with pilot promotion programmes run by organizations.
Investment is generally very low as the equipment required is simple and can be manufactured locally. On the other hand, in order to ensure a good quality of his achievements, the entrepreneur will have to invest in training his employees. This investment will be balanced by the quality of the realization.
