Our in-house design and pre-construction team has an important role to play on every architectural façade and solar screening project.
They combine experience, technical know-how and a deep understanding of the construction industry to help clients turn their visions into cost-effective and buildable reality. In a process of consultation and collaboration, our experts influence designs to optimise manufacture and installation. And although every project is bespoke, we build in standard processes and components wherever possible. Today, detailed drawings are complemented by advanced 3D modelling to aid visualisation, accommodate changes and give architects and contractors confidence in the proposed design.

“Maple were head and shoulders above other suppliers. We sat down with their design team and they showed us how they would approach the project. Maple have been instrumental in the appearance and overall quality of the job.”
Dave Burton, Contracts Manager, Caddick Construction
Real-life insight – our designers don’t spend their lives in front of screens, they’re often on site carrying out surveys and attending client briefings
Design review and consultancy – our team host workshops with clients and architects to get under the skin of a project and optimise the system or product design
Value engineering – we apply a disciplined process to every project to improve function and quality, and eliminate unnecessary costs
Finite element analysis – we use advanced computerised methods and simulation to predict how products or components are going to perform in real-life situations
