Rigor. (from the lat. rigore) n. 1. harshness; strength; 2.fig., severity; punctuality; accuracy.

There is no "more or less levelled", "more or less upright”, "more or less clean" or "more or less safe", but rather “levelled”, "upright”, "clean” and “safe". The rigour is reflected in our procedures, in time and in the rules to follow. In the light of moral and principles, being severe means being rigorous.

Solidarity. (from the lat. solidare) n. 1. the quality of being solidary; 2. reciprocal responsibility among the members of a group, namely social, professional, etc.; 3. sense of sharing another’s suffering.

A solidary company is recognized as a fair and non-selfish company. A solidary company is a preferred choice in business. It is a more competitive company. Volunteering is a vehicle to solidarity. It is modern, fair, cultured, friend, it is a noble gesture of moral elevation.

Courage. (from the lat. coraticum) n. 1. bravery facing danger; intrepidity; to have audacity; 2. moral force before a suffering or setback; 3. [fig.] to input energy when performing a difficult task; perseverance...

Courage is essential in our life. Courage to face less pleasant situations when complex issues come up, not expecting random resolutions.
It is a value that we must highlight as opposed to the fearful, cowardly and laziness.
The courage to react to criticism not with an attitude of demotivation or sadness, but rather to search for the means and the action to overcome its own reason. This kind of courage, which is also an intellectual courage, is highly recommended.

Ambition. (from the lat. ambitione) n. 1. vehement desire of wealth, honours or glories; 2. expectation about the future; aspiration; 3. lust; greed…

Vehement desire to achieve a particular goal. Ambition not to resign ourselves. Ambition to take the best potential from ourselves. Ambition to deserve ourselves.

Esthetics. ESTHETICS (from the Greek aisthetiké, "sensitive") n.f. 1. Philosophy branch of philosophy that studies the beauty and nature of artistic phenomena; 2. author's own style, time, etc.; 3. harmony of shapes and colors, beauty; 4. set of techniques and treatments that aim to beautify the body.

Responsibility. (from the lat respondere) n. the trait of being answerable to someone for something or being responsible for one's conduct; a form of trustworthiness.

We must be certain that, before a choice, we chose what is best for both of us and not just the best for each one. Each employee is responsible for his negotiated activity and co-responsible if the co-worker does not fulfil his own task, thus preventing the common goal. A team is a set of individuals - is a whole. In the business game, as in social or family contexts, everyone must comply with their own relative position and we shall not permit that one of ours fails to be in our team.

dstgroup wins €7.6 million envelope in London

Jornal de Negócios

In the United Kingdom, a market that already represents 20% of Bysteel's turnover, the company of the Braga group that dropped the purchase of Efacec signed a contract to clad Worship Square, which is presented as "one of the most sustainable, intelligent and healthy office buildings" in the British capital.

With half of its nearly 400 workers "mobilised in the international markets" where it operates, led by France, followed by the United Kingdom, which "already represents 20% of sales," Holland, Monaco and Angola, Bysteel plans to close the current financial year with turnover similar to last year's, which was around €51.5 million.

"2022 has been a very challenging year, marked by the uncertainty of the economy.  Even so, we remain optimistic and we predict that the year will close in line with the previous year", Rodrigo Araújo, administrator of the company specialising in designing, engineering and executing façade solutions, metallic structures and "building envelopes", told Negócios.

Meanwhile, "confirming the ongoing expansion strategy" of this company of the dst group in the United Kingdom market, Bysteel FS has just closed a €7.6 million contract to clad Worship Square, which is presented as "one of the most sustainable, intelligent and healthy commercial office buildings in London".

In this development promoted by HB Reavis, Bysteel will be responsible for the "complete building envelope, which includes more than five thousand square metres of façades and the entire building envelope in a custom terracotta tile", with the conclusion of its work on this project scheduled for October next year.

€17 million contract at Berkeley Hotel  

"At Worship Square we are working at the forefront of sustainable construction, challenging standards and promoting more environmental solutions. We are working ahead of the times, with demand and rigour that motivate our teams and reinforce our position as leaders in the construction and high-value architecture segment", emphasised Rodrigo Araújo.

Located in the heart of London's bustling tech district, Worship will have nine floors and 140,000 sq ft of office space, with the capacity to create 1,000 workspaces. Designed to "reduce carbon by more than 50% compared to current industry benchmarks", and promising to remain carbon neutral "also in operation", the building will integrate "more than 3,200 plants and 40 different species in a biophilic design that will create a 'green heart' from its entrance".

Aiming to strengthen its presence in this country, especially in London, "a hub of innovation, thanks to the major economic and environmental movements it concentrates", Bysteel has other works under development in the British capital.

 "We have underway the construction of the prestigious 5-star Berkeley Hotel, a contract worth around €17 million, which includes the 'design & build' of the building's suspended steel superstructure and the complex architectural envelope designed in 17 façade typologies," stressed the same company manager.
