First we define the project scope. Do we fully understand the customer needs? After an extensive intake meeting we visualize dreams and demands in moodboards. They provide interesting talking points for further explorations. By the end of phase 1 we make sure everybody’s on the same page. All people involved know the scope of the project and feel confident in the process.
Now it’s our time to create ideas. From the first drafts to final sketches and 3D drawings. Here the journey begins. We want to see happy faces.
After approval of the final drawings development can begin. That means: making technical drawings and engineering all aspects of the structure. We source all components from selected suppliers, to ensure quality and durability.
The production takes place both off and on site. First we gather all components and materials, then we build (parts of) the structure off site, so we won’t meet unpleasant surprises on site. And that’s where the tensile structure really comes to life, in it’s natural habitat.
First and foremost to us tensile design is a creative craft. Shapes may emerge intuitively yet need to obey laws of physics. An intriguing tension field.
Our structures mainly consist of wood, steel and canvas. We source materials locally from the best suppliers to guarantee long lasting, firm structures. For safety reasons our engineers are specialized in the technical demands of sail structures.
