– WITH YOU ALL THE WAY

We’re focused on delivering excellent tensile fabric solutions through great client relationships at every step in a project.



































































DESIGN & ENGINEERING

Creativity drives beautiful design. We’re ambitious and innovative, exploring concepts with an open mind to realise their full potential.

We involve our expert in-house engineers early. This helps clients, architects and contractors to understand the intricacies of the innovative fabrics we’re working with and identifies potential challenges to overcome for a seamless project.

Our established design and engineering approach benefits from specialist NDN software. We visualise solutions in CAD or 3D and can run technical feasibility studies using 3D modelling. All our 3D models work within BIM to support collaboration across work programmes.



































































MANUFACTURING

Our structures are built with high-quality fabrics and fixtures – and we understand how to get the best from them. This drives our manufacturing.

We combine the latest approaches in engineering technology and 3D modelling to generate technical patterns. Nearly 40 years’ industry experience and a long-standing network of suppliers goes into creating cost-effective and durable structures.



































































PROJECT & CONTRACT MANAGEMENT

Our project and contract teams truly partner with our clients. They have extensive experience across Fabric Architecture’s portfolio and provide valuable project advice and input while being a knowledgeable and reassuring daily contact.

Every client and every project is unique. Our dedicated teams understand this and they will be there to do what’s important to you and your project, whether that’s inputting on value-engineering, sourcing specialist fabric or providing practical logistics information.



































































INSTALLATION, GROUNDWORKS & ONSITE SERVICES

From the ground up, we’ve got it covered. Our skilled and experienced installation teams work to the highest safety standards and are dedicated to the safe and precise installation of our tensile structures to agreed timescales and deliverables.

Through CHAS Accreditation, we ensure continual and updated compliance across the different areas of risk management. Interior or exterior, small or large, UK or international – safety always guides our onsite teams.



































































MAINTENANCE

We all need a little care as time goes by and the same can be said for fabric structures. As with any building, environmental stresses take their toll. Fabric technology has evolved significantly – maintaining both the fabric and the structural joints is important to preserve the structure’s long-term integrity.

We can recommend and manage a proactive maintenance programme that could mean the difference between your structure lasting 10 years or 50 years.
