How we work
Specialising in the design build of Lightweight Engineered Architectural Features, the (LEAF) Structures team offers in-house engineering, detailing, project management and installation.
We believe in having a clear understanding of the specialty feature requirements, which enables us to add value by providing initial design input and various options, while keeping to the intent of the specialty feature. We take into consideration the desired structural and cladding materials, thermal requirements and constructability of the projects we work on and how these can affect the budget of the specialty feature. Due to our licensing agreement with Novum Structures LLC, we can use various Novum products, including nodal systems which can ease site installation of complex structures.
A Typical Design Process
Step 1: Initial design concept developed by the architect
Step 2: Preconstruction and design development in collaboration with the architect
Step 3: Detailed engineering, drawings and material fabrication
Step 4: Installation of free form structure and ETFE cladding
With an exclusive licensing agreement between LEAF and Novum, we are able offer clients a full range of Novum systems.
These systems have been uniquely developed to offer speciality engineering solutions to the construction industry.
