Estimating

We place great emphasis on accurate estimating and cost control as we know how crucial this is to the success of our clients’ projects. Our estimators and bid managers are experts in their fields and, working alongside our design team, are able to produce accurate costs that do not need constant revision.

We also consider it an important part of our added-value service to find alternative and innovative ways to overcome design and build challenges, whether through product or process, which in many cases can lead to a lower price and a faster completion time than our competitors can offer.

In order to have the best chance of making a valuable contribution to the pre-construction process, we prefer to be introduced to a project at an early stage. In this way, we can usually offer our clients the maximum benefit in terms of cost and time savings.
Our estimating services include:

  • Specification advice
  • Budget estimates and cost analysis
  • Value engineering & alternatives

Design

Glazed facades can be among the most complex and technical aspects of many construction projects and it’s crucial that any installation partner has the expertise and experience to ensure that all design detailing is spot on well before the construction phase begins.

Core Facade’s in-house designers and structural engineers possess an impressive wealth of knowledge across a whole range of different disciplines. This ensure that all aspects of the design are considered and optimised, from wind loads and loads transferred to the primary structure to the implications of the positioning of the sun at different times of the year.

This technical expertise enables our team to resolve interface issues and fixing details at an early stage and makes for a more smooth and efficient build and installation process.

Manufacture

Core Facade retain tight control over fabrication and assembly which are carried out at a partner production facility by skilled operatives.

Raw materials such as extrusions, glass and cladding materials are subject to stringent quality control before fabrication commences and throughout the assembly process, and are thoroughly checked before despatch to site to minimise delays and ensure adherence to the strictest build programmes at all times.

Where possible, we use unitised and pre-assembled systems which allow us tighter control and minimise additional work and time on site.

Installation

When it comes to installation, you can be assured that the Core Facade’s team maintain the highest standards of operational excellence at all times.

Site teams are run by an experienced site manager who takes overall responsibility for quality standards, QSHE, programme compliance and overall operational productivity.

As we are rarely operating in isolation on a site, we are at all times mindful of the need for careful coordination between trades and our place in the overall build programme and will always strive to operate seamlessly as part of the overall site team.

Project management

Once your order has been placed, Core Facade will assign a dedicated project manager to your project. As well as acting as the main client contact and keeping you appraised of progress, the project manager is responsible for ensuring that every aspect of the project runs as smoothly as possible.

This includes everything from initial delivery of materials, their storage on site and the installation process (overseeing an installation team where appropriate), right through to final site clearance and handover.
