DESIGN, ENGINEER, INSTALL
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
To develop highly engineered membrane lightweight structures takes careful and well planned processes to achieve built solutions that achieve the desired aesthetic and functional outcomes as well as manage successfully the environmental challenges.
To achieve the high level of standards we set ourselves, we believe most of this can best be done through a design and build process where we set, control, manage and install the structures. Implementing our processes generates the kind of results that we are proud of and delivers excellent return on investment for the client.
Developing projects today takes a large amount of consideration of all the factors involved to build the most appropriate structure. Material, time and cost need careful selection and planning. Most times clients need to make decisions and do not understand factors sufficiently. LWW have responded to the demand and supported a few clients by providing a Feasibility Study. As a company we are contracted to propose concepts, advise selection and develop one concept sufficiently to report back on design, material selection, statutory implications, preliminary engineering, time and cost. This places the clients decision making in the best position to proceed with a project or not to invest and even perhaps to go in a different direction entirely. As a paid study we are able to dedicate our time and expertise to the best solution.
The outcomes have been varied from some clients confirming the project into realization, others who have cancelled investing further and some that have taken the information and decided on alternative solutions. Clear cut informed decisions based on proper expert information that benefit their business.
At Lightweight Works we believe in delivering a high quality result to the benefit of all involved.
To achieve that, our team need to be involved and control the input and output of every part of the process. Design is done at our studio in Hong Kong as that is the best way to work with our clients, understand the requirements and reflect that in the design. The structures are complex and we employ specialized software in design and engineering. In addition we work with a long term partner who provides RSE calculations and information to reach compliance and work with the Buildings Department. Long-term partners in the fabrication of membranes and steel works we also have and that facilitates smoother production and lead-times. Installations are carried out by our crew team and we build what we designed, engineered and fabricated. We take responsibility for the outcome and we make sure it’s the best solution for the clients requirements and challenges.
In support of our clients on-going management and maintenance of these structures, we provide the following services as membrane lightweight structure specialists.
