In May 2019 ETEM officially joined the international professional association of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The CTBUH was founded in 1969 in the US and aims to promote the exchange of up-to-date information on tall buildings around the world through publications, research, events, workshops, web resources, and an extensive network of international representatives.
The membership of ETEM in the Council is part of the company's strategy to meet the specific needs of each market and to offer state-of-the-art system solutions for the most challenging projects.
The company has been developing for years the portfolio of systems for high rise buildings, that are already successfully installed in projects worldwide.
Especially in Bulgaria, ETEM has already couple of referent high rise buildings with a height more that 100 m.
One of the latest projects of the company is the project Sky Fort in Sofia. The skyscraper will be the second building of the Sofia Capital City complex and will be 202 meters high.
