CIOA’s Titan Factory provides worldwide communities the opportunity to create their next residential and commercial building projects using the latest modern methods of design and manufacturing.
As a collaborative business engineering group, CIOA brings together architects, builders, suppliers and communities to work collaboratively with a 3D Building information model and mobile manufacturing unit to provide turn-key building solutions throughout the world.
Group CIOA was created in 1994 by Chantal Salinière and Léon Lucide, but it has taken a quarter of a century to help shape CIOA, which today has a presence in over 50 countries.
Founder Léon Lucide’s early life and experiences helped shape the vision for CIOA, but the platform for a truly global enterprise did not arrive until the internet was born. Léon’s son and COO of CIOA, Loïc Lucide has been influential in that shared vision, and in 2017 launched their first ‘Titan Factory’ a mobile building machine which brought together Finnish, Dutch, French and Turkish experts.
“We recently set-up our first BATI-FABLAB, containing a pooled TITAN FACTORY machine for all construction requirements,” explained Loic. “Over the next ten years we plan to establish about 150 BATI-FABLAB centers to be able to extend our network by retraining people and working towards helping with the problem of a lack of housing internationally.”
CIOA is carrying forward its vision to serve their worldwide communities by meeting needs with a sustainable perspective and providing institutional decision-makers with the means to help their populations to consume better, to live, train, work and recreate better.
