Understanding your brief and project means we can see, predict or identify things that you may not be aware of. As specialist designers and installers of tensile architectural solutions, part of our fact finding is looking at the site and undertaking a site analysis: looking at sun direction, the view, weather conditions, orientation, noise, access points and so forth. When working with a large range of tensile solutions like, structural cables and rods to tensioned mesh, we have the fittings and the knowledge on their specification, application and know how they should be installed. Making sure your expectations are met is fundamental to your project’s success.
