Wienerberger moves into architectural services
Wienerberger has launched an architectural services department in response to member demand.
The firm designs and manufactures building envelope materials and works with clients to provide technical support to schemes once they reach site. The new service, Archigility, was launched to bring together a number of services under a new banner. It comprises qualified, experienced architects, technical specialists and BIM experts.
“In 2018, we were asked by one of our clients if we had the capability to undertake the masterplan and full design for his new development of five affordable housing units in Surrey. On the back of the success of this development, Archigility was born,” said Charlotte Hamman MCIOB, Wienerberger’s head of built environment.
“Combining practical architectural skills with expert technical knowledge leads to fewer unknowns, less risk and early material procurement. Our current schemes now include a 128-unit greenbelt development, a 50-unit village in Somerset and a number of others.”
