ICF Professional Engineering is a technical engineering studio based in Rimini, specialized in building and structural design, expecially in constructive systems of load-bearing concrete walls (ICF Insulating Concrete Forms).
In addition to planning, the studio is also organised to supervise bulding works, all over the country.
Cristian Angeli is the senior partner of the studio and he has been a freelance engineer in structural engineering since 2001. Over the years he has specialized in reinforced concrete load-bearing wall systems, collaborating with various companies and following, as the scientific manager, many researches and experimentation activities of innovative systems, carried out in various Universities in Italy and abroad. He also works as a consultant for leading industries in the production of polystyrene formworks for construction, dealing with the design, prototyping, certification and promotion of innovative systems.For several years, he has been a technical consultant for the Bazzica-Promass industry, which manufactures and commercializes the “ICF ITALIA” (www.icfitalia.eu) building system.Further Informations
On behalf of companies in the sector, Cristian Angeli has been a scientific manager in special research agreements stipulated with:

- University of Bologna (Department of Engineering DISMAT), research agreement for the characterization of finishing concretes and for the determination of minimum thicknesses of concrete cover
- University of Bologna (Department of Engineering DIENCA), research agreement for the thermohygrometric and acoustic characterization of ICF walls
- University of Pavia (EUCENTRE), research agreement for the characterization of shear wall systems against cyclic dynamic actions (earthquake)
- ITC-CNR of Milan, determination of fire resistance (REI) and for the issue of Technical Eligibility Document (Mediterranean Agrement) for shear wall systems
- Istituto Giordano spa of Rimini, static tests on slab floor panels realized with particular constitutive technologies, for acoustic tests in situ and for the evaluation of the effects of electromagnetic fields
He has worked abroad in the field of load-bearing wall systems, working closely with:
- Institute of Eduardo Torroja of Madrid (Spain)
- Centre National d’Etudes et de Recherches integrèes du Batiments (CNERIB) of Algeri (Algeria)
- Institutul National de cercetare-dezvoltare in constructii si economia constructiilor (INCERC) of Timisoara (Romania)
In 2006 and 2007 he held numerous lectures as a PhD student in the course of Technical Architecture at the University of Ferrara, Faculty of Engineering.
In December 2008 he received the position of “effective expert Member” in the Evaluation Committee for admission to the PhD in STRUCTURAL AND HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING at the University of Bologna (Department of Engineering DISTART).
