Every project is unique – that’s the beauty of what we do. To ensure a successful outcome, we will work in partnership with you in a framework that has been designed to clarify processes and responsibilities for both parties throughout the life of the project.
At the early evaluation stage of a project, basic drawings in any format are suitable for us to evaluate and provide guidance on likely member sizes and project cost indication. Where a preliminary design is required from our design team and/or our engineers to establish the scope of the project, we will always provide a quotation prior to proceeding.
Once we have your agreement, we proceed with full structural design and specification. Depending on the scope, this document will include relevant producer statements along with full plans and specifications for presentation to council.
As with other factory-manufactured components, prior to manufacture, fully dimensioned workshop drawings of the components must be created, including the location of all slots, pre-drilling and penetrations as required. Techlam require full client approval and sign off of these drawings, including sign off by the project architect or engineer.
Upon completion of the full design, our QS team will a detailed Schedule of Quantities, and dependant on scope, a fixed price proposal. Once we have your approval, we will then schedule the project for production.
Techlam proceeds with the manufacture of the product, along with any required detailing set out in the specification document. We will provide indicative lead times for delivery, dependant on workload at the time of acceptance. Accurate lead times can only be established upon approval of drawings and we will work with you to ensure satisfactory delivery times.
Techlam provides Product Assurance Supplier Statements (pass™) for specifiers to include in their specification. These statements can also assist with the acceptance of consents.
