"RFR is an engineering company that specialises in the design of complex structures and of sophisticated envelopes, in intimate symbiosis with the physical character of the building concerned. Its competence goes far beyond construction techniques alone, to attain the creation of the elegant structures that reconcile engineering and architecture.
The work of RFR is founded on mastery of the technical tools and of the associated scientific concepts. Its use of the most advanced computer applications and exploitation of the most recent technologies enable the company to generate a synthesis of construction parameters which lead to solutions that are at once rigorous，innovative and efficient.
RFR was founded in Paris in 1982 by Peter Rice, and is also based at Stuttgart in Germany, at Shanghai in China, and at Abu Dhabi in the Emirates. The firm has distinguished itself over the intervening years on many projects, executed in every part of the world. The wide range of skills possessed by its staff, composed of engineers, architects and industrials designers, enable it to operate in very diverse contexts, and to use the widest variety of materials.
