A Team of Experts at your Service

LYNKEA is born from the meeting of three engineers specialized in the construction industry : Sandrine Coste, Nicolas Icard et Gaël Brillaud.

Anne Tondeur, Betina Damvergi and Juliette Sabarros increase the team’s expertise by their specific experience.

Benefitting from complementary experiences and skills, they gathered around a common vision :

Making the contract a priority means better control over your projects and ensuring the sustainability of your business.
