"When the conservative restoration of an ancient property is carried out, the use of newly produced timber often does not satisfy the aesthetic taste of the customer, since the contrast between the old and the new is strong and reasons for stylistic consistency make the use of authentic materials more prestigious.
Antica Edilizia, has spent many years discovering and enhancing bricks, stone and wood recovery from demolition works of ancient buildings. Once carefully selected, stored in appropriate locations, catalogued, cleaned and treated appropriately, recovered wood from these ancient buildings provides the raw material for building recoveries or new buildings whose value is increased by virtue of these refined raw materials.
The cleaning and recovery processes are the indispensable requisite to guarantee stability and durability to the wood. Our specialaized workforce has developed over the years a strong competence in this type of processing, combining a tradition that is carried on from generation to generation with the quality coming from the technological innovations introduced in the production processes.
The processes to which the beams and recovered timber are subjected also include load tests, in order to ensure quality and strength, as well as the level of aesthetic appeal. In the company’s workshops the beams can be emptied for the insertion of profiles necessary to give greater strength. The processes are always carried out with the highest respect for the environment and the authenticity of the materials, based on a recovery project agreed with the client."
