About us

Atomium

History

SECO was established in 1934, on the initiative of Professor Magnel, Professor at the Ghent University and Professor François, Professor at the Brussels University. Our company became the first independent and neutral technical partner of the construction industry, the technical platform for the three major professions involved in construction: architects, civil engineers and contractors.

The purpose of our company is to enhance global quality all over the industry through many ways. We prevent risks, especially when it comes to innovative solutions. We have been the pioneers in the safe application of what once were innovative solutions such as prestressed concrete, prefabricated facade elements, insulated window systems… or through our contribution in committees about norms and standards, such as the ones on frost resistance of concrete, on windloads or on fire safety. Our contribution is recognised at a European level.
