Batiline was established in 2005. It was one of the first “trade” companies to found what later became Domicim, and subsequently Groupe MK.

Initially called Batiline SA - Architecture, Renovation & Consultation, its mission was to take on the role of technical managers for Domicim, which given the magnitude and complexity of the projects, often required the skills of architects and construction managers.

New markets opened up and Batiline developed rapidly, not only managing building renovation projects for the clients of Domicim, but also interior design, conversions and renovations as well as space planning and new builds for new clients.

In 2014 the general contractor Batiline Constructions SA was incorporated to provide its clients with a guarantee of the cost, quality and completion time required for their projects. Prestigious clients such as the Association of National Olympic Committees, Swisscom, HH Sheik of Kuwait and many others offer first-class references.

In 2016, in the context of the merger between Foncia and Groupe MK/Domicim, Batiline SA has integrated the FT Concept SA /(ex-Foncia) teams, enriching its experience in the area of new builds, particularly for co-operatives.

Its legal character and the range of benefits offered by Batiline SA make it an independent company, but complementary and necessary to the activities of Groupe Domicim, which brings together all of the trades needed by the real estate business.

Over the 16 years since it was founded, Batiline has grown from one to more than fifteen team members.

Batiline places its skills, experiences and methodology at the service of its clients and the success of their projects in the field of architecture, renovation, space planning and new builds.
