CMS Façades is one of the leading façade solution providers in the UK today. Our pioneering team is behind many of the most complex and architecturally challenging new-build and retrofit projects across multiple sectors. At the heart of all of it is innovation.
Like the rest of the CMS family, the CMS Facades team is future-focused. Firm believers that the innovation that’s shaping the future of construction is a breakthrough in mindset as well as technology.
CMS Façades was one of the first in the sector to adopt and make regular practice of some of the key developments in rapidly emerging technology, such as autonomous equipment, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and advanced building materials.
Together with other recent breakthroughs – including drones, augmented reality and 3D scanning and printing – they’ve helped boost productivity, streamline our project management and procedures, and enhance quality and safety across the four key project delivery stages:
- Design using BIM, Revit technology and an expert team of façade modellers;
- Manufacture with 5S machinery;
- Delivery offering standard, semi-unitised or unitised systems;
- Installation using 4D modelling and BIM 360.
And we won’t stop there. We continue to work collaboratively with the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service, Innovate UK and Scottish Universities to ensure our facilities and our team remain at the forefront of Industry 4.0 developments, including robotics in manufacturing. Just think what the future might bring.
OFF SITE MANUFACTURE FACILITIES
All our goods – including sheet metal fabrication panels and structural steelwork for bracketry – are manufactured off-site within our own factories, which means quality control starts and ends with us. Our dedicated 50,000sq ft manufacturing headquarters in Glasgow employs a team of over 50 highly-skilled, experienced façade fabrication operatives – ensuring a high-end, quality product, developed and built within a carefully controlled, lean manufacturing facility.
