Healthy and shared living environments

Social issues guide Mei’s work. We believe that architects can and should play an important role in creating a healthy and shared living environment. From stimulating social cohesion to integrating urban nature, we incorporate social and ecological design principles, both on the scale of the building and of the neighbourhood or district.

Timber construction as the new standard

As one of the pioneers of industrial flexible and demountable building (IFD), Mei has many years of experience with flexible and detachable building systems, which contribute to a circular economy and extend the lifespan of buildings and materials. With SAWA, we are setting a new standard in the field of timber construction. Extensive knowledge of technology, process and regulations and an always inquisitive attitude drive constant innovation in our projects.
