Case Studies

Architects and specifiers learn a great deal from how colleagues have overcome particular challenges and the more technical information provided within case studies the better. Learning first hand through technical documents, drawings, videos and other material how a project was brought to a successful conclusion, from the design concept to specification of products and meeting building regulations and standards aids the industry as a whole.

In this section we look at a wide range of projects from all sectors of the market, discussing the use of products, materials and systems to meet the design and construction challenge.
