Involved in many projects to preserve and restore historical heritage, OSMOS naturally joined, in October 2016, GMH, the national representative body of historic preservation and building restoration professionals.
Close ties with those involved in heritage preservation
This membership reinforces OSMOS's longstanding and solid ties with those involved in the preservation of historical monuments and heritage: local authorities, private companies, Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC), etc.
Preserving businesses and living heritage
Created in 1959 under the auspices of the French Building Federation, GMH ensures an interprofessional mission to "unite those involved in the restoration of heritage, foster interaction among stakeholders, defend the interests of professionals in the sector and thus supporting companies who work to preserve historical monuments and living heritage.”
GMH brings together 200 specialized companies, covering a wide range of occupations ranging from masons, restorers of art, carpenters and master glassmakers to tailors, cabinetmakers, roofers, sculptors, ironmongers and, of course, technical specializations such as those offered by OSMOS.
Heritage and high-tech
Advanced technologies offer innovative solutions to preserve and restore living heritage. OSMOS solutions make it possible, for example, to understand the real structural state of structures using non-destructive technologies that are capable of anticipating the occurrence or evolution of damages rather than simply noticing them. It was therefore quite natural for GMH's Board of Directors to validate the membership of OSMOS as an associate member among professionals with traditional know-how.
