I am the founder of the Freio, a consulting firm specializing in climatic design in Montpellier, France.

I offer my services as a consultant in bioclimatic public or private development projects oriented towards a climate adaptation process, guided by appropriate and sustainable technical choices.

Do not hesitate to contact me for your project.

My projects concern:
- Improving comfort in winter and summer thanks to passive techniques;
- The study and design of natural heating and cooling techniques;
- Supporting individuals towards low-tech or autonomous housing projects;
- Adaptation to climate change at the local or urban scale.
