We seek a collaborative working relationship right from the start, with proactive involvement from the initial design stage until final on-site completion and handover.
On receipt of an enquiry, we closely appraise the client’s drawings in order to identify the best solution, and respond with a proposed scope and marked-up drawings.
Following this, we work closely with the client to agree the detail of this scope, attending workshops and design team meetings as needed, in order to maintain the architectural intent and to advise on areas that can be value-engineered by the use of LSF. Where appropriate, we incorporate structural engineering as required in accordance with EN 1090-1 and BS EN ISO 9001:2008. The design is approved and agreed by contract, before manufacturing can begin.
Our Tekla 3D design software controls the design and fabrication process of both light steel framing and hot rolled steel members. We have a robust change management process and use BIMsight viewing software to enable all parties to be clear on what is being produced.
We offer a supply-only service or full installation, as required. Our nationwide installation service includes technical review, provision of site installation drawings and on-site inspections and sign-off. Icarus is registered under the Achilles and CHAS schemes with an outstanding safety record. Our operatives are trained to a high level of site safety and CPD is implemented throughout the workforce.
