    About BEE Incorporations

    BEE was born out of the realization that a large knowledge gap exists between engineering and design teams introducing sustainable solutions and the construction teams in charge of bringing these solutions to life. In the implementation process, sustainable goals of a project often get lost. At BEE we aim to merge design and engineering know-how with construction expertise and materials specialization and enable a project to truly achieve its sustainability goals. BEE was started as “Bisagni Environmental Enterprise” in 2009 in Shanghai. We have since grown to have a global presence and project footprint that spans the globe.
