UK leaders in light steel gauge framing (LGSF) form strategic alliance with Cheshire based architectural glazing specialists….
With an ever growing portfolio spanning residential, leisure and the education sector, LGSF giants Sigmat are now poised to make their mark on the luxury housing market.
The firm, who have developed three bespoke housing frames, all of which offer high levels of customisation, have appointed RED Systems as their preferred glazing partner.
Sigmat, who have pioneered the development of modern methods of off-site construction over the past twenty years, are now the market leaders in the design, manufacture and installation of light gauge steel frames for the UK construction industry.
Their commitment to innovation has seen them deliver the building superstructures of over 300 high profile projects in a variety of sectors across the UK and their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Leeds produces vast quantities of bespoke LGSF in order to meet the ever growing demand for modern construction solutions.
A New Era of Construction
The partnership with RED systems coincides with the launch of the firm’s new luxury housing division which has been developed on the back of the company’s success in the residential sector. Sigmat anticipate that demand for houses built using modern methods of construction (MMC) will continue to increase and that, combined with government initiatives could see the UK becoming a global leader in the field.
Speaking about the teams plans to roll out the new luxury housing models across the UK, Sigmat CEO Mark Eburne said, ‘This partnership represents the culmination of a significant amount of research and development into delivering fully glazed units for both our new luxury home division and existing commercial clients across the UK.’
‘RED Systems share the same passion for creativity and innovation as we do here at Sigmat so they were the perfect choice when it came to appointing a forward-thinking glazing partner.’
‘We are excited to be able to tap into RED’s expertise as we continue our ongoing programme of research and development and look forward to working with them on a whole range of industry leading initiatives in the coming months.’
RED Systems will be working alongside Sigmat’s in-house design teams to provide factory installed window systems for the new bespoke housing range as well as a number of commercial projects. The team have already created a bespoke bracket to kickstart the project which enables products to be factory assembled.
RED, who have offices in the North West and London specialise in the design and manufacture of aluminium glazing products. Their service led approach and strong commitment to innovation and quality has positioned them as one of the most respected operators in the UK glazing sector.
RED Systems Managing Director Michael Green commented, ‘We are absolutely delighted to have formed this strategic alliance with SIGMAT. Their design and development credentials combined with their industry leading products makes this a hugely exciting opportunity for us.’
‘We are massively interested in MMC and see this being a significant part of the construction industry moving forward. More than anything though, we see this partnership as a real ‘meeting of minds’. By combining our knowledge we are confident that we will be able to create an outstanding solution and complete rapid dry envelope solution for the industry. We have already had a high level of interest from our existing clients who are keen to explore MMC.’
