FAQ

Why MAST™ was born?

MAST™ is born from the synthesis of thirty years of experience in the design and   supervision of works in construction site. It represents the sustainable and evolved response to the problems routinely met in all the construction sites of new and old buildings.

 

Why use the MAST™ ?

Because  MAST™ is like a compass that allows to orient in a complex world such as that of the house and therefore  all the elements, networks and plant structures can be controlled and concentrated in a single distribution line. All of that combining the best of excellence in architecture and design Made in Italy.

Why the MAST™ in the house I mean restructure?

In the case of restoration the MAST™ can preserves the existing state in the most relevant structures, walls, floors, and in general in construction elements, interesting only major functional elements (systems, networks etc.), the partitions and distribution.

Why use the MAST™ in the new house?

In the case of a new building, MAST™ you can start from MAST™ to organize spaces of the house. The MAST™ is carried out work and is tried and tested in the laboratory. Therefore, the MAST™ is able to perform its functions already in the moment in which it is positioned within a free space. It is therefore possible to define and articulate around it the various rooms of the house completely freely, also because – whereas the bearing structures can be, for example, made of wood, it is to obtain an extreme freedom of composition and configuration.

How much easier the work on site?

At least 70%. The construction times are significantly shortened because the system is pre-assembled and tested in the laboratory and then ready to the installation. Therefore it requires less workers (which in a traditional worksite are continuing at each other, with costly interventions interspersed between them).

No risk of having a house like the other? My house is customizable?

The house precisely because (intelligently) simplified in the part which traditionally is more binding (the installations, networks, etc.), is much more easily customizable, not only in the choice of materials, which can be very different from each other (such as wood, stone, corten, etc.) but also in the distribution which, however, over time can be changed much more easily (as with the expansion of a room or a bathroom, or as with the change of the intended use of a compartment).

Where does the MAST™?

MAST™ is a realization in all around Made in Italy. in fact, it is a product completely designed, manufactured and packed in Italy. In its construction (composition, choice of materials, finishes) we take advantage of Italian designers and Italian manufacturers, mostly handmade nature. The MAST™ is characterized, therefore, for the highest construction quality, obsessive attention to detail, creative design and forms, durability. The MAST™, as an Italian product, is a high quality product, with high specialization and differentiation, elegance, innovative concept, traditional processing.

Is it cost-competitive compared to a traditional construction method?

Yes, if we think it boils down to one-third the time of preparation of the construction site, the amount of personnel and costs of testing; all this should be considered the savings from operating costs, by reducing consumption and the added value – in the case of restructuring – the redevelopment of the property, as well as lower expenses resulting from changes in future distribution.

Why MAST™ is sustainable, environmentally friendly?

This is definitely another strength of MAST™: in Europe 25-30% of the waste comes from the most difficult to recycle demolition and construction of buildings (source CRESME). The contribution of MAST™ results highly significant also from this point of view, since it minimizes the demolition interventions in the version re-use and does not contemplate use of cement in the new; moreover for its realization employs recyclable materials such as wood. From an energy point of view, then, allows the upgrading of the existing or the qualification in the new, up to the energy classes A and A +, with the ability to insert the domotic control of consumption. All this produces immediate significant energy savings and at the same time adds value to the property you will benefit from a market point of view.

It is applicable to all types of buildings?

MAST™ is designed for residential buildings of different sizes (from 75 square meters up to individual buildings, one floor, several floors) and it exists in version medium, large, extra large and extra extra large designed specifically for building sites of residences, condominiums, hotels or skyscrapers.
