A brief history

In the 1960s, during the general reconstruction of Italy and in particular that of the industrial sector, three engineers, Antonio Migliacci, Clemente Schiatti and Sergio Colombo were made responsible for the complete project design (urban plan, architecture and mechanical and electrical plants) of a large textile industrial complex to be built in Villacidro in Sardinia. It provided the opportunity to start an informal professional partnership, unheard of at the time, for the integrated building design. In the years to come, the team was given an increasing number of residential complexes, industrial complexes, social housing and recreational facilities on which to collaborate. By 1973, the number of projects on which the engineers had worked together had grown considerably, prompting them to consolidate their loose and at times spontaneous collaboration into the professional partnership of Studio Tecnico MSC s.r.l., based in via Poerio, Milan. In those years Prof. Antonio Migliacci’s constant search for innovative solutions for industrial construction and prefab components drove the structural design industry to grow exponentially. However, traditional project design and site management required the collaboration of young structural engineers and architects. By the end of the 1980s the firm became Studio Tecnico MSC Associati S.r.l., to include four new associates: Eng. Danilo Campagna, Arch. Maurizio Fantoni; Eng. Sergio Levati; and Eng. Renato Villa. The office moved to Viale Majno, then Viale Jenner, and opened an office in Como. Following these changes, the firm’s activities in Italy and abroad grew and developed to include important commercial, residential and hotel buildings. Along with its design activities, the associates’ specialised technical staff are able to follow all activities inherent to a building’s construction: site supervision, technical assistance, administrative and technical evaluation, financial job management. Furthermore, following legislative developments in 1997, the firm increased its competencies in site safety.
