Kalam is the builder with the best ratings given by the Spanish State for public tenders for building rehabilitation and restoration and the conservation of Artistic Heritage. With more than 30 years in the business, we have performed restorations recognized and rewarded by professionals and managers of architectural heritage, such as interventions in the cathedrals of Siguenza, Santiago de Compostela, Coria – Cáceres, Cuenca, Plasencia, Tudela, Almería, Cádiz or Sevilla, and we have worked continuously for various dioceses of the church and for such solvent companies as those of the insurance sector, who only put their property in the hands of qualified companies that offer them the best guarantees.
From our beginnings it has been a priority to have a roster for the company comprised of highly qualified and trusted professionals: Fine Arts graduates, restorers, teachers of traditional building trades specializing in the work of lead, zinc, wood, and the reproduction of architectural items, mortar coverings, etc., led by highly trained and experienced technicians.
We have updated our heritage buildings at the national level, through public tenders, comprehensive rehabilitation due to changes in use or unfavorable ITEs (Technical Inspections of Buildings, in Spanish). Noteworthy is the upgrading of the historic centers of Madrid, Barcelona, Segovia and Toledo.
We have intervened at thirty monuments with World Heritage UNESCO Declaration
