We work closely with clients and architects to make sure a project not only looks fantastic and meets the design intent, but that we can manufacture it in the most efficient way. Our experienced team will factor in any manufacturing requirements, sustainability criteria and materials supply issues to ensure we keep the momentum on a project going to deliver on schedule. Here are just a few ways we can ease the journey from initial design concept to practical completion to help our clients and architects make their vision a reality.
Design is so much more than the sum of its parts. It’s as much about how different elements come together to work as a whole and materials specification lies at the heart of this. We never take a design at face value and if we think an alternative material may be worth exploring, we’ll include it in the mix. We’re always on the look-out for new materials in different finishes and colours to create the high specification interiors our clients demand.
The first stage for us in any given project is to source samples of each material specified as part of the design, which we can share with the client to make sure the look and feel of each fits their vision for the project. At the same time, our experienced manufacturing team will assess its suitability for the elements of the design where it’s been specified.
And as a manufacturer, we’re very aware of any potential issues with materials shortages and cost increases, which is why our dedicated procurement team works hard to make sure we can deliver, suggesting like-for-like alternatives where necessary so we can always meet project deadlines.
From design to reality
Our bespoke approach means we’re committed to delivering interior fit outs tailored around our clients’ different requirements with no two projects ever the same. Combining traditional craftmanship with modern design and manufacturing techniques allows us to get the best possible finish for each project.
Using the latest CAD software, we can create scaled drawings and realistic renders which allows our clients to visualise the exact details of their project and bring initial designs to life. Our on-site 3D printer can also be used to create scaled mock-ups of key elements so clients can see how they will look once manufactured and make any adjustments at an earlier stage.
Even with the best project renders, we know how important it is for architects and clients to have something more tangible to assess too. That’s why we’ve developed our accurate full-scale mock-up service. This gives clients the opportunity to see their finished designs to full size in our factory, using the specified materials and finishes so they can be viewed as close to complete as possible well before work gets underway on site.
Putting an emphasis on sustainability
Sustainability is increasingly a driving force for our clients. When it comes to accreditations like SKA and BREEAM which apply to the whole project, it’s vital that every member of the supply chain plays their part in achieving the required sustainability criteria and we’re no exception. We’re proud to be able to work to the parameters set and can advise on alternative, more sustainable material options where required.
Having our in-house manufacturing facility allows plenty of scope for producing bespoke designs to meet the needs of the building and its end-users. Why not get in touch today to see how we can help your next project?
