Early identification of the façade types (usually by method of construction) assists in the rationalisation of the construction methods, the identification of suitable façade contractors, and the capturing of the design criteria. This  is one of our key methods of working.

When this is combined with a detailed understanding of the procurement strategy for the façades, and the programme, interface can identify a rational and achievable way to deliver the performances required.
