RED specialises in the design and manufacture of aluminium glazing products and will join forces with Sigmat to produce products for luxury housing and commercial developments
Wirral architectural glazing firm RED Systems is forming a partnership with a Leeds firm to produce products for the luxury housing sector.
RED specialises in the design and manufacture of aluminium glazing products for a wide variety of sectors. The firm, which has offices in Neston and London, will work with off-site experts Sigmat to target residential developments.
It will work 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 has already created a bespoke bracket to kick-start the project which enables products to be factory assembled.
RED Systems managing director Michael Green, said: “Sigmat’s design and development credentials combined with their industry leading products makes this a hugely exciting opportunity for us.’
‘We are massively interested in modern methods of construction (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.”
Sigmat, which has pioneered the development of modern methods of off-site construction over the past 20 years is now a market leaders in the design, manufacture and installation of light gauge steel frames for the UK construction industry.
Chief executive 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.”
