ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BLUMANO

OUR SERVICES

WHO WE ARE

Our team comes from an array of diverse disciplines yet we have one thing in common:
a passion for lowering the risk of our clients while protecting the technical integrity of their design

OUR TEAM

HOW WE WORK

We are specialized in the assessment, integration and design support for atypical machinery installations. We work side by side with authorities, notified bodies and H&S inspectors to conceive together sustainable compliance frameworks.

OUR COMPETENCE
“Has the entertainment industry ever seen such rapid change? In forty years we’ve gone from outdoor static stages to rotating monoliths, from cranking up a lighting tower to floating video constructs above the audience.

Artists are becoming more often flying performers, where stages and automation are pushing their design boundaries to permit achieving the inconceivable.

This is the rate of change we’re dealing with and that’s why is vitally important to understand in full the challenges the future will bring.”
