our own specialized staff

In Kalam it has been a priority to ensure the value-added differentiation of our work, enabling us to earn the trust of our clients and a position at the forefront of the industry. To that end, we have created a team of technicians, historians, Fine Arts graduates, restorers, master craftsmen and essential trades, all with training and experience in rehabilitation and restoration, who count with the proper equipment and make use of the adequate materials.

project support department

Intervention in heritage and extraordinary monuments, always complex buildings which require troubleshooting various functional problems and have a whole repertoire of pathologies, led us to create the Project Support Department (DAP in Spanish). In the different preliminary research or predesign phases, DAP identifies the building conditions, studies the materials and complements the analysis of the building systems used, proposing solutions to the preservation agencies and their technical staff.

laboratory: analysis and control

A relevant section of our Project Support Department is our laboratory, which allows us to identify the immediate physical and chemical characterization of constructive components, aggressive agents and environmental conditions. A diagnostic hypothesis is obtained throughout the duration of the job, as a reference for the construction solutions finally implemented. Distinguished architectural studios have valued our contribution to optimize construction investment and timelines.

national archaelogical museum

A good example of the level of trust in our Project Support Department, of which we are very proud, is the commission by the National Archaeological Museum of Spain to write the conservation studies for more than six hundred pieces from the Organic Materials and Fine Arts collections, for their Museology Plan. These were drafted by a team of Art History graduates and restorers, encompassing works in stone and wood, canvas paintings, panel paintings, furniture, musical instruments, sarcophagi, mummies, textiles and archaeological artifacts.

our own resources

Our senior technicians, architects, building engineers, Fine Arts graduates, restorers, experts in the study of materials and pathologies, craftsmen, and in-house traditional trades, are coordinated by highly experienced middle managers and the logistics team. They make possible an effective collaboration with technicians who rely on our services to support them in the preliminary study and design phases, always ensuring the best value in terms of economic appraisal and warranties for any Rehabilitation Project.

The creation and consolidation of in-house workshops is one of our distinguishing features in the two logistical infrastructures. Just as the on-site workshops at relevant restoration sites, in which our artisans shape, reproduce, prepare, and calibrate metal pieces, repair and strengthen wood framing, and calculate the proper proportions of aggregate, pigment and additives according to the lab work table that controls all of the chemical and operative processes.

geographical scope

The business organization for the implementation of works is divided into two pillars – territorial and logistical.

TERRITORIAL: Madrid – Barcelona – Bilbao – Lisbon – New York – Chile – Mexico – Peru  – The Nederlands – Angola

LOGISTICS: Permanent Workshops – On-site Workshops

These areas of the organization have the authority to make the necessary decisions and thus respond effectively to the demands of our customers and the requirements of the work. Technically they are managed by departments that guarantee, on all jobs, the following: health, safety and quality controls, fulfillment of commitments with our warranty seals, technical management, control and development of material conditions, human resources and administrative and financial management. Registered offices have full control of local management and projection of the company in all areas.
