After a university education at EPFL in Lausanne (Switzerland) and Marne-La-Vallée, Didier Mignery obtained his diploma of architect in 2001. He founded ZOOMFACTOR® Architects in 2002 with which he realizes more than 300 projects, in housing and equipments. In 2015, he delivers his first raise the roof project in Paris. With the experience gained and the interest generated, he refocuses part of his activity on the raise the projects and accompanies his customers on all stages of a project. This approach ultimately leads to the creation of UPFACTOR® Surélévation in 2017, an independent consultancy structure with transversal expertise (architecture, engineering, law, financing) and a tool that leverages open source and big data, UPFACTOR GEOSERVICES®, a geographical information system allowing large-scale identification of the aerial land potential.
