Our pre-contract services can begin at project inception or beyond and continue to main contract or cladding contract package tender, working directly for clients, developers, project managers, architects or other members of the project team. Through PCSA (Pre - Construction Services Agreement) and DA (Design Assist), we offer our clients technical support while verifying feasibility, risks, and costs of the project to identify the best value facade system.
System Design & Selection
Working closely with the architect and wider design team gives us an opportunity to continually interrogate the design rationale and to distil our thinking in order to clarify the developed solution. Ideas are explored and solutions developed within our concept stage design workshops. We have extensive experience in full-scale requirements and applicable standards as well as technical performance analysis or individual materials and products. The development of bespoke and standard systems is a highly specialised discipline requiring in depth knowledge of materials, manufacturing processes, methods of installation, as well as a commercial appreciation that enables a robust solution to be attained every time.
Material & Envelope Fabric Selection
We have gained extensive experience in cladding of all types including rainscreen cladding, composite cladding and bespoke curtain walling systems. We’ve also got experience in many different materials used in the cladding of buildings including glass, stone, aluminium, steel, stainless steel, ceramics, timber, and many more. Our Tender Department already carries out a meticulous cost estimate during the tender phase through a thorough design intent and the project specifications analysis.
