Nikolaos Kofinas, having worked for 10 years in various construction companies, acquires the experience needed to implement his innovative ideas for the time.
Anticipating the needs of the market for cheaper homes, which would be delivered to the customer faster and would be superior in quality compared to the usual constructions, studies building systems and materials.
Emphasizing wood, which he considers the best
ecological but also construction solution, creates an exhibition
prefabricated houses in the current offices of the company in
Mesogeion Avenue of Agia Paraskevi, founding at the same time
After the dynamic start of the company, the demands for further organization and development bring to the company Michalis Kofinas and thus enter the foundations of the course of the Kofinas brothers in the events of the construction sector.
Then begins the search for permanent partners, engineers and craftsmen to ensure a steady and upward course. It is no coincidence that since 1980 many of the company’s executives work until today in Kofinas OE. and continue to share the same vision with us.
At the same time, the company is building the first factory in Markopoulo, which increases the production of prefabricated houses, but also massively produces smaller houses, which are transported ready by cranes.
The company Kofinas OE Responding to the increase of demands and with emphasis on the improvement of the services provided to the customer, it expands its exhibition in Agia Paraskevi, while it also creates a new one on Markopoulou Avenue. It is worth noting that the new exhibitions also gave the customer the opportunity to choose individual materials that would include his home.
The construction of houses that were transported by cranes comes second, since now the company Kofinas OE. gives a basis to the prefabricated houses which he builds on site on the plot.
Having already built thousands of houses, the company is not resting. The constant research and search in the field of prefabricated housing, mainly through various exhibitions and engineers from abroad, are constantly improving the quality of construction. The company now selects even from abroad the best raw materials for the construction of houses.
In 1993, in order to prove its pioneering role in the field of prefabrication, it organizes for the first time in the Greek events an Exhibition of prefabricated houses that took place in the courtyard of the Zappeion mansion.
From 2000 the new generation of the Kofina family will take key positions in the company (Costas Kofinas: foreman, Pigi Kofina: accounting, Eugenia Kofina – architecture).
The thirst of the family and its collaborators for the evolution of the existing construction in combination with specialized static studies and Germans
engineers create the only screw masonry system in Europe.
The new factory of the company in Markopoulo, Mesogaia, is being constructed for the production of the innovative masonry.
The modern factory with the huge storage spaces is equipped with machines that robotically place the screw in all the construction parts of the masonry.
The prefabricated houses that were built on site on the plot are a thing of the past. Now the masonry is transported ready to the plot with privately owned cranes,
since the company’s factory is further upgraded with machines that angle, press and test each wall separately.
However, the company is not only evolving in the technical sector but also in the commercial one. In 2004 it reconstructs its exhibitions in Agia Paraskevi and Markopoulou Avenue and at the same time creates a sales network in Greece and abroad. Now Kofinas OE exports its masonry and its foremen are sent abroad at regular intervals for supervision but also for research of construction technologies.
The unique building system of the company Kofinas OE. is tested for its endurance at the National Technical University of Athens, exceeding any natural endurance limit. The construction surprised experts and scientists who spoke publicly about the quality and technology of the company.
The vast experience of the company in wooden constructions and the constant technological research, mainly abroad, lead the company Kofinas to deal with the wooden Finnish houses. The company now imports the best quality timber in Europe to build houses with Finnish logs. To prove their quality to the customer, the company is expanding its exhibition on Markopoulou Avenue by constructing Finnish homes.
The company is undoubtedly the center of reference in the developments of the prefabricated buildings. This is the reason why engineers, students and technical schools visit the company’s exhibitions and constructions for the study and learning of constructions.
The Kofina brothers, despite their objective reputation in the construction market, are not complacent about continuing uphill. They attend the largest European exhibitions, such as BAU in Germany, emphasizing the construction of larger buildings (commercial buildings, office buildings, etc.) and go on to research modern construction solutions.
This technological progress is also verified with the new experimental research of three-storey construction KOFINA. The experiment carried out in the technical office of the internationally Emeritus Professor of the National Technical University of Athens P. Karydis, reaffirmed the uniqueness of the construction and the name of our company.
The further modernization of the company is achieved with the construction of a new office building of the company in Agia Paraskevi. At the same time, the company will present the new series of Flexyhome houses. The Flexyhome series was created by the company in order to offer home buyers an economical solution, which, however, does not lag behind in anything in terms of technology and quality.
By creating exclusive dealerships, importing huge quantities of raw materials and prefabricating most of the construction in bulk in our company factory, we were able to reduce construction costs without negotiating quality. From the Swedish wooden frame to the last link, the Flexyhome construction proved that the best is not always the most expensive.
The company Kofinas is being upgraded to a SA. At the same time, it is creating a network of representatives in Greece and Europe, while for the first time, the export of prefabricated construction parts abroad is starting.
At the same time, its building system is technologically and qualitatively evolving based on ecology and sustainable development. Both the masonry of the structures and the roof are reinforced with ecological materials ensuring the optimal energy behavior. This optimal energy behavior will be the basis for the first time the company Kofinas SA. to construct certified passive buildings.
The company KOFINAS SA innovates without resting. As always, it constantly introduces new elements in the construction of houses, which are recognized and “certified”, both by our hundreds of satisfied customers and by the National Technical University of Athens, where the unique building system of Kofinas was tested for its durability surpassing any natural endurance limit.
So once again, without resting, the innovation is seen, with The new factory of KOFINAS SA that will house its vision which is already in operation since the beginning of 2020. KOFINAS SA once again creates something new that does difference in the area of prefabricated houses. This factory is located in Markopoulou Industrial Area.
