Our process explained and broken down

Step 01. Design

When it comes to design, our team can achieve almost anything. Over the years, we’ve turned thousands of construction challenges into smarter framing systems. Send us your design specifications and allow us to work on a smarter solution for your project.

Step 02. Estimating

Every project is unique, and that’s why at this stage we spend a lot of time communicating with you. We’ll arrange an initial consultation where we take the time to learn all about your project. Our detailed quotations explain the scope of the project, engineering details if required and mark-up plans.

Step 03. Shop Detailing & Engineering

Your framing is shop detailed in-house including comprehensive layout plans, individual frame details and fixing locations. Framing is designed and engineered as a full system including 1507 certification, compliance to ISO 9001 and a certificate of compliance by registered structural engineers.
