On my first visit to their office, I felt especially welcome both by their friendly approach and the space itself; it offers the necessary conditions for work, combined with the comforts of an elegant and habitable, huge and bright loft.

Their motto: build, don’t talk.

Pericles and Yannis Dimitropoulos own the construction company SOLID. Based in Athens, they collaborate with selected professionals of the field for each new project they undertake.

They grew up in Athens, in a neighborhood of Philothei. During their school years they showed a marked interest in sports and devoted a lot of their free time to athletic endeavors. Nowadays, after their work obligations are over, they venture into the wild for short or not-so-short escapes that are necessary for the balance of their daily lives. At every opportunity they seek an adrenaline rush skiing on the mountain or the sea, kite surfing, motocross or BMX racing, biking and any other activity on land or water.

They studied Mechanical Engineering at London’s Imperial College. After graduation they worked in different construction companies, each acquiring separate professional experiences. This empirical knowledge completed the pre-existing foundation and, combined with their individual vision, led to the founding of a new company: in 2009 they created SOLID, their own construction company that invests in the continuous development of its services. They believe in lifelong relationships instead of fleeting collaborations, striving for a unique long-term vision which demands solid foundations and hopefully promises a better future.

A main and essential precondition for the projects they undertake is the lifespan of each construction, which in turn depends on appropriate planning and impeccable execution. Dynamic, hard-working and focused on professional quality, the two brothers and their team recently began a new course in New York while they have already shown samples of their work in Europe.

Keep it up!
