About us

A family owned Business with strong values and solid foundations, leader in the building sector, innovating for responsible and low-carbon construction.

Specialist in metal construction for three generations, the BRIAND group brings together the best expertise of construction: metal, wood, and concrete.

With a widespread presence in France, in the territories and in the heart of the regions, but also in Europe and Africa, we understand your expectations, listen to your constraints, and advise you in order to offer you tailor-made techniques and solutions, at the right price, within optimised deadlines and in complete transparency.

As a designer, builder and manufacturer, with integrated expertise and complementary subsidiary companies, we offer you new, unique, sustainable and low-carbon solutions for responsible construction, in line with the challenges facing the planet.

Driven by our main aim of “Building better, together” for people and the planet, we rely on a collective of subsidiaries, expertise, engineers, technicians and specialised workers, guided by the same vision of excellence, values, respect for standards and customer satisfaction, to deliver reliable works, within optimised deadlines and costs, respectful of needs and budgets, with no unpleasant surprises throughout the project.

Aware and concerned about the challenges of preserving the planet, we are constantly innovating to change the way we build by proposing sustainable and more environmentally friendly solutions.

Governance of the Briand Group

The group’s governance is exercised through various groups and bodies. This governance method, which is run transversally and at different levels of the company, makes it possible to involve the greatest number and diversity of employees.

Our aim:

  • To listen to and integrate the real-life vision in the implementation of the project
  • To allow time to step back and work on our main aim “Building better, together”, through the permanent improvement of our methods and tools, but also through the progressive integration of sustainable construction into everyone’s daily life
  • To make the smooth running of the group a duty and a resource for everyone. The cross-sectoral entities illustrate and organise the sharing of the keys to success with as many people as possible, the adoption of common practices for greater efficiency, and listening to and welcoming differences.

Here, the committee of entity directors, who meet several times a year to share practices and discuss the group project.

‌Our story

70 years of experience in the construction industry

Briand is a family owned business, whose history is rooted in Vendée, in Les Herbiers. From a traditional forge handed down from generation to generation since 1745 to an industrial steelwork company from the 1960s onwards, we have gradually diversified our activities and extended our territorial coverage in France and abroad.
