A vision of the future that anticipates the place of human beings in cities
For nearly 30 years, IKO has been demonstrating its in-depth knowledge of the property market and its ability to constantly reinvent itself. This enables it to anticipate developments in the sector and satisfy the requirements of our private and professional clients. Its avant-gardist spirit constantly drives it to conquer new technologies and see the potential of new sites ahead of everybody else.
In 2018, our passion for our profession, our desire to cast a fresh eye on every project and our conviction that people’s well-being is closely linked to the way cities are developed are inspiring us to explore a new corporate vision, and a new mission.

FAAST is a think tank dedicated to the innovative sustainable construction. In a context of an overflow of information and green-washing, FAAST tries to make clearer the vision of its partners and to pull out them to more sustainability, ‘open-minding’ and well-thought innovation.

We work on 4 stages : collect (survey, be aware…), Focus (be more specific on an interesting topic, … ), Play (test new stuffs, make OBoxes,… ), Share (organize events, trainings, …)
