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.

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.

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.

Steelwork at Paris Racecourse considered as emblematic European project


The Longchamp Racecourse in Paris has been considered as an emblematic steelwork structure in Europe, and bysteel, part of the dstgroup business group, was distinguished with two awards at the European Steel Design Awards, in the categories 2019 Award of Merit and also public choice, for this Portuguese group based in Braga.

This is the most important competition in the entire steel industry, which every two years awards promoters, architects and constructors responsible for building the most emblematic steel structures throughout Europe, and it has distinguished bysteel's work.

The prizes were awarded by the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork at the Museum of Musical Instruments at a ceremony held in Brussels, after the project was submitted to the competition by the Portuguese Association of Steelwork and Mixed Construction (Associação Portuguesa de Construção Metálica e Mista - CMM), also a promoter of the 2019 Portugal Steel Design Awards, as it is a work involving the Portuguese bysteel company.

The Longchamp Paris Racecourse is internationally recognized as one of the most demanding horse racing circuits in the world and is the venue for the most beautiful horse race in the world, the Arc de Triomphe. It has been immortalized by painters such as Édouard Manet and was one of Degas' favorite places who, over his lifetime, painted 90 paintings related to horse racing.

The renovation of the Longchamp Racecourse, which was renamed the ParisLongchamp Racecourse, was designed by the architect Dominique Perrault and included the demolition of all the stands built in the 1960s and their replacement by a single stand - the new Jockey Club Tribune -, which is both more compact and functional than the original ones.

Bysteel was part of the Tribune du Jockey remodelling project, through the design, manufacture and construction of the steel structures and aluminium and glass façade systems, contributing decisively to the renovation of this important space, inaugurated by Napoleon III in 1857.

The 160-metre-long, 23-metre-high Tribune du Jockey features a “sloping shape inspired by the movement of a galloping thoroughbred horse” and can house up to 10 000 people. It has four floors and with a restaurant on the top floor, over a large-sized console structure with a 23-metre span.

It should be recalled that in a previous year, one of the “2017 Merit Award” winners was the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, where bysteel was also responsible for the manufacture, construction and design of the steel structural connecting elements.

For the Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the dstgroup, José Teixeira, the awards “are international recognition of bysteel's work, which has also been distinguished in this award not only for its quality, rigour and efficiency, but also for the refined technical and innovation requirements placed at the service of the most challenging national and international projects”.
