Modern Construction Firm Launches Luxury Housing Scheme

Sigmat, the Leeds-based specialists in the development of modern methods of off-site construction, has partnered with RED Systems to launch a scheme for the luxury housing market.

According to The Business Desk, Sigmat, which designs, manufactures and installs light gauge steel frames for the construction industry, and has developed three bespoke housing frames, has appointed RED Systems as its preferred glazing partner.

The company has delivered steel frame superstructures for more than 300 high profile projects across a range of sectors in the UK.

The announcement of the partnership with RED Systems is to tie in with the launch of Sigmat’s new luxury housing division, developed after the firm’s success in the residential sector. The company is anticipating greater sustained demand for houses built using modern methods of construction.

‘Modern Methods of Construction’ (MMC) is a wide term, embracing a range of offsite manufacturing and onsite techniques that provide alternatives to traditional house building. MMC ranges from whole homes being constructed from factory-built volumetric modules, through to the use of innovative techniques for laying concrete blockwork onsite.

Sigmat CEO Mark Eburne said: “This partnership represents the culmination of a significant amount of research and development into delivering fully glazed units for both our new luxury home division and existing commercial clients across the UK.

He added that RED Systems share the same passion and enthusiasm as Sigmat for innovation and creativity, making them the ideal glazing partner when it comes to MMC.

“We are excited to be able to tap into RED’s expertise as we continue our ongoing programme of research and development and look forward to working with them on a whole range of industry-leading initiatives in the coming months,” he said.

RED Systems will work with Sigmat’s design teams to provide the glazing for factory-installed window systems for the luxury housing range, as well as several commercial projects. The partnership has already developed a new bracket for the project, which allows products to be factory assembled.

RED Systems has offices in the North West and London and specialises in designing and manufacturing aluminium glazing products.

RED Systems managing director, Michael Green, said the firm was delighted to confirm the partnership with Sigmat, calling it a ‘strategic alliance’, and that its design and development credentials and its industry-leading products make it an exciting opportunity for RED.

“We are massively interested in MMC and see this being a significant part of the construction industry moving forward. More than anything though, we see this partnership as a real ‘meeting of minds’,” he said.

He concluded saying that the combination of talent and experience from both firms makes him confident that the partnership will be able to produce outstanding housing products, and many of RED’s existing clients have expressed a ‘high level’ of interest in exploring more MMC.
