Folia [Greek φωλιά] noun: nest; a place where groups are nourished, collaborate and thrive
Folia is more than a structure. It represents our forward-thinking team, partnering to deliver award-winning, high-performance education buildings. The brain trust of renown AEC experts Blach Construction, Quattrocchi Kwok Architects and Gregory P. Luth Structural Engineers, Folia is the result of our uncommon approach to a common endeavor — we have revolutionized the design and construction process.
Pre-engineered and structural steel at their core, Folia buildings combine the lasting durability, higher quality and customization of site-built structures with the cost and schedule efficiencies of modular construction. While designed with schools in mind, Folia is ideally suited for workplace, healthcare and most other industries as well.
Independently, we design, construct and build. Collectively, we are Folia. And together, we deliver.
