Science and technology
Our work in the science and technology sectors includes the design, manufacture and installation of high performance facades, rainscreen cladding, windows and doors.
Our experience in this sector ranges from the impressive glazed facade of the new Square Kilometre Array (SKA) HQ at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire to the award-winning Project Capella, a state of the art laboratory building for the University of Cambridge at their Biomedical Campus.
New science buildings often feature visually striking facades which may seek to push boundaries in terms of material choices or aesthetics.
At the same time, they may include areas such as laboratories where the requirement for absolute control over the internal environment could not be more critical.
Our design technicians are experts in creating an optimum balance between aesthetics and performance, prioritising considerations of sustainability and the efficient use of energy along with safety and security and the comfort of building users.
Britplas is a certified supplier of leading aluminium facade systems including Kawneer, Schüco, Aluprof and Smart Systems UK.
Our established relationships with our carefully selected supply chain partners allow us to ensure that our clients receive the best possible technical and specialist advice at all stages of the project as well as reliable and efficient supply of materials from the best in the business.
Our in-house BIM-accredited design team work closely with clients and partner consultants to ensure that glazing, cladding, screening and architectural metalwork details are all specified, procured and installed in the most efficient and effective manner to suit the requirements of the scheme.
