Surprises are hardly ever good news in construction. They can erode profit and trigger tactics to try to mitigate unforeseen costs that, in turn, lead to a drop in quality.
Tallwood will engage with you in an in-depth design process up front. The rigour of this process leads to a more accurate, seamless construction phase which fully realises the benefits of digital fabrication and offsite manufacture.
Tallwood can create a digital ‘twin’ of your building, enabling us to test the early design for its ability to be manufactured and erected easily and efficiently. This way of working eliminates surprises and the need to rework drawings, or worse, buildings, on the fly in response to unforeseen issues.
Components are manufactured from the digital model in quality-controlled environments away from the weather and to much finer tolerances. Once the components have been delivered to the site the building goes up more quickly, allowing it to be closed in earlier. Walls can arrive pre-clad, with windows installed. Once the roof goes on your building envelope is weathertight. The weather has far fewer opportunities to negatively impact the efficiency of your labour, site safety, and the integrity of your other materials and fittings.
