Precision Engineering Empowers Architectural Vision
As one of the UK’s leading providers of rainscreen systems, metal fabrications and bespoke full envelope solutions – quality is at the heart of PSP Group’s operation. Chairman Heath Hindmarch reveals how investment in the most advanced CNC fabrication equipment integrated with sophisticated digital technology is opening up new design possibilities for the building envelope.
A distinctive facade design is the external representation of the creative vision and offers insight to what lies within. From small quick turnaround developments to extensive multimillion-pound schemes, our state-of-the-art manufacturing and digital technology is helping architects to achieve the most challenging of design detail across a range of metals and composite materials.
PSP work in synergy with supply chains during the early design stages to achieve outstanding facade solutions with an array of aesthetic and technical benefits for almost any building. Each project is custom-made and unique but whatever the size and scale of the project – the unifying factor is the outstanding quality of the finish.
Achieving Aesthetic Ambition and Performance
We bring inspirational designs to life but finding a balance between form and function is essential and this is why we like to get involved from the initial design concept to advise on not only achieving the aesthetic ambition but the optimum facade performance.
PSP’s manufacturing processes take place in our precision-controlled factories. Our architectural and manufacturing teams collaborate with our experienced designers to maintain premium quality throughout all processes – from design to manufacture, to transportation of finished systems.
Our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system supports quality procedures to consistently provide up-to-date information and a single point of contact. This facilitates full traceability of materials and provides real time updates on the project. Our systems have been CWCT tested to ensure they meet rigorous industry standards and are resilient against extreme weather conditions.
There have been huge technical developments in cladding solutions in recent years but with designers demanding more aesthetic elements – an architectural approach is now an essential part of the mix.
We have made large investments in recent years and have positioned ourselves as a single point of procurement for bespoke full envelope solutions. As a leading manufacturer in our field, we understand the importance of working closely with architects and suppliers to build long-lasting working relationships that allow us to provide the very best engineered solutions.
Over the last two decades or so we have developed vast knowledge and a deep understanding –experience is everything as each project requires a specific facade solution that is tailored to individual demands.
PSP Group is an integrated cluster of three companies: PSP Architectural, PSP Aluminium and PSP Design. Our companies operate in complete synergy to provide design, manufacture and supply of bespoke envelope solutions including rainscreen cladding, specialist fabrications, rainwater goods, ventilation, solar shading, flashings, pressings and support facade systems
At PSP we value the process of becoming a trusted member of the supply chain, and by offering a complete package of services we are able to minimise risk through a single point of control and responsibility.
