Architects and Technal

Support for your Project

A range of support systems is available to you which includes technical assistance with design development, through to the preparation of specification. 

Technal responds to individual project needs through more bespoke designs for specific schemes, performance enhancements, and new innovations.

Technal strives to continually improve every aspect of the business, from the design of systems to delivery on site. 

Architects and Specifiers

Our team of field-based Project Consultants work closely with our in-house contracts, system design, and supply chain teams to provide architects and specifiers with information and assistance. Backed by the resources of the Hydro Group, we are able to offer architects and specifiers a wide range of innovative aluminium systems for curtain walling and facades, doors, windows and specialist applications. 

We cover every aspect of your project. We combine architectural trends and technical developments as part of our product design process to deliver high-performance systems. Wind and dead loadings, static and dynamic weather sealing, acoustic and thermal insulation, blast resistance and security and stunning aesthetics are all taken into account when designing our product range to allow unlimited ideas to be realised on site. 

We know that the specification process is influenced by client demands to obtain the best value. We are keen to participate in site visits, project meetings and outline budget discussions. Your design stages can be supported with NBS documents, samples, literature and typical arrangement drawings for consultation or planning meetings. 

To assist specifiers with the production of faster and more accurate project drawings, CAD files for all facade systems offered can be downloaded from the download area. 

We also respond to individual project needs through bespoke designs for specific schemes, performance enhancements, and new innovations to enhance new and existing architecture.

Contractors & Developers

We pride ourselves on our ability to work in close partnership with our clients and within their specific areas which has given us vast experience in different market sectors. 

Whether you are planning a new-build or refurbishment project, in building maintenance or speculative developments, we have a product solution to meet your requirements. These can be tailored to suit your project objectives without compromising the aesthetics of your project design

Our team of Project Consultants can assist in coordinating your project plan with our specialist sub-contractors. We track progress via our CRM systems and link through to our production planning team to ensure a smooth and efficient supply chain functionality.

  • Safety Standards and Regulations for the selection of Windows and Curtain Walling
    The seminar draws as its source key British Standards and Building Regulations, supported by additional documentation where required.
  • Building Regulations Part L 2010 (Full Course): Thermal, Solar and Air Permeability Considerations for Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling (ADL1A; ADL1B; ADL2A; ADL2B)
    By using extracts from key documents the seminar guides specifiers and engineers through limiting, reference and notional U-values, solar gain and air permeability issues.
  • Building Regulations Part L 2010 (ADL1A - Specialist for new build, dwellings): Thermal, Solar and Air Permeability Considerations for Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling
    Seminar focusing on ADL1A - Specialist for new build, dwellings.
  • Building Regulations Part L 2010 (ADL2A - Specialist for new build, non-wellings): Thermal, Solar and Air Permeability Considerations for Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling
    Seminar focusing on ADL2A - Specialist for new build, non-dwellings.
  • Designing shading that performs - understanding the science of solar shading to enhance building temperature control
    Through this we aim to enhance the design process, leading to the best selection according to building design and efficiency needs.
