GALA Engineering includes highly qualified professionals in the design of architectural, structural and technical systems focusing on Green Building and environmental sustainability, in key sectors such as Healthcare, Efficiency and Certification, Design and Construction Project Management.
GALA Engineering is also authorised to act as Contractor. Through high-level partnerships, such as the partnership with Studio Libeskind, Habitat, Polytechnic, Professor U. Veronesi for Healthcare, GALA Engineering is able to drive any complex project, managing the complexity efficiently.

GALA Architecture and Engineering Consulting Shanghai Ltd, more simply called GALA China, has launched an ambitious plan to penetrate the Chinese market and it has recently won important and prestigious tenders, prevailing amongst some of the most important engineering companies worldwide. GALA China is the bridgehead of the group in China, a market to which the Group pays great attention for the opportunities that will come from its gradual liberalization.

Renewable

The group GALA produces energy from renewable sources by using the controls GALA Power, owner of seven solar power plants in Italy, with an installed capacity of 4,3 MW. All generation plants are installed on industrial buildings, with no impact on the landscape and environment.

Energy efficiency

In 2015, GALA has launched a major project aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of residential consumers and SMEs. This project is based on a distinctive business model that integrates:
  • the best available technologies for the production of electricity and heat from renewable sources, heating and cooling, lighting, measurement and control of consumption and electric mobility,
  • all the services of technical, administrative, commercial, financial, monitoring, support and maintenance, which allow for an easy and affordable intervention to improve energy effciency.The services for energy efficiency supplement GALA’s global offer, but are completely independent from the sale of electricity and gas.
Energy efficiency services integrate GALA’s offer, but are totally indipendent from the energy and gas sales.

Solar

The GALA Group, through its subsidiary GALA Tech, has recently acquired the production assets of Solsonica, the largest and best Italian manufacturer of photovoltaic panels, acknowledged in Italy and abroad for the quality of its products.

Accumulation

In summer 2015, GALA acquired the 100% of Proxhima, an Italian company that has developed a technology for the storage of electrical energy based on flow batteries (Vanadium Redox).

This technology is distinguished by the duration of the life cycle (up to twenty years) and for the lowest cost per charge/discharge cycle, compared to all the existing technologies, and fits perfectly for every stationary-energy accumulation need.

The Proxhima battery has superior performance to other batteries Vanadium Redox-existing, it is characterized by the power and scalability of the energy stored and stands out for its innovative design.

SMART CITIES AND COMMUNITIES

Energy Supply, a more sustainable mobility, safety and services: this are the challenges that local governaments are facing. But these are also great opportunities for economic development.
