Facade design works undertaken


Residential facade design

We will work with one single dwelling to a whole block of flats and apartments.

Working with multiple finishes of panel - render - timber - terracotta - ACM or composite. Detailing around balconies and locations where differential materials meet.

Working to the latest guidelines from NHBC and building regulations we aim to schedule the materials used from primary grid and fixings to panel layouts working with leading manufacturers of tried and tested products.


Commercial facade design

Offices come in all shapes and sizes, cabins to re-developed warehouses and gleaming curtain walling systems.

We are often needed for those areas in between, at the entrance area or soffits and canopy locations where junctions, angles and materials meet as well as between windows to add a splash of colour or texture.

Entrance areas and reception locations too.


Industrial facade design

Fire, clean ability and durability often required using more robust materials specified by the client or architect.

We take those elevations and create cross sections at all necessary points, base, head, jamb and reveal as well as capping and junctions to other buildings.

All the items can be drawn and scheduled identifying the jigsaw of fixing pieces needed and a method of installation understood at site level.
