Perhaps the doings inside a building could make that claim…but not the building itself. However, that buildings can change lives, outlooks and communities, is a simpler …
It’s said to be the hottest February on record, so we can’t help but look ahead to spring and summer. Of course. no summer would be complete without a splash in the pool! Even with hotter weather than ever though, UK meteorologists can’t promise clear skies all summer long. So, why not consider housing that glorious pool, in a gorgeous glass pool house?
A modern pool house can be used all-year, proving it’s worth far beyond spring and summer. When the weather warms up, bi-folding or sliding doors allow you …
Powder coating is something that each and every one of our structures undergoes. It helps to protect their aluminium frameworks, gives a high maintenance finish and provides the colour of choice for each new structure. What is it powder coating though, and why do we choose to use it?

What is the best material for my frameworks?
