Our fully integrated approach

SIGMAT offers a seamless process which allows each project to progress from design through to on-site installation.

The main stages are explained under the following five headings.

The experienced SIGMAT team offer a professional and technically advanced design service using proven Tekla BIM software.

    Design
  • All designs are carried out by experienced qualified engineers in accordance with the Building Regulations and EC3
  • The design process is assisted by computerised tools, but we take a ‘hands on’ approach to respond safely to project and client requirements
  • Design information, together with the Architect’s and Client’s requirements, are brought together in a Tekla BIM model that allows project details to be reviewed in a full 3D rendered environment before manufacturing begins
  • Manufacturing information is downloaded from the Tekla Model to the Rolling Mill - eliminating the potential for human error at this critical stage.

Our expansive headquarters in Brighouse, West Yorkshire house both a manufacturing and assembly plant.

    Manufacture
  • We operate a fully computerised barcode system to track each component from plan to site delivery
  • We have a state-of-the art roll forming mill which manufactures bespoke light gauge steel frames
  • We also manufacture a full range of hot rolled elements – including podium structures and steel stairs
  • We provide our clients with the complete structural envelope by co-ordinating all elements and maintaining strict quality control over the whole process.

SIGMAT pre-assembles storey-height internal and external wall panels in accordance with the relevant drawings.

    Panel assembly
  • We normally clad external wall panels with a rigid foil-faced insulation board and vertical stainless steel brick tie channels, or a sheathing board
  • We roll form profile elements from pre-galvanised steel coils in phases to suit the site programme and to align our pre-assembly work phases with specific site delivery dates
  • Our meticulous off-site pre-assembly in factory-controlled conditions improves the build quality, shortens the site erection programme and reduces Health and Safety risks on site.

In addition to light gauge steel framing expertise, SIGMAT fabricates hot rolled steel elements to offer the complete structural envelope.

    Hot rolled steel
  • We manufacture posts, transfer beams, lintels and balcony steel work to exacting standards within our factory. These are shot blasted to Sa2.5 standard and coated with primer paint or a hot dip galvanised finish
  • When a podium is required we offer a fully integrated design and construct package with beams positioned under all load bearing walls
  • When feasible, integral posts and lintels are included in our off-site panel assembly process
  • Beams and other major elements are delivered to site with the wall panels for fitting on-site
  • We maintain strict in-house quality control over both light gauge and hot rolled steel elements. This eliminates the possibility of incompatible frame elements arriving on site.

Our experienced and dedicated installation teams are committed to achieving the optimum combination of quality, accuracy, speed and site safety.

The fully integrated SIGMAT system:

    On-site installation
  • achieves the shortest possible on-site installation time
  • improves project health and safety by minimising on-site activity through pre-fabrication
  • manages quality control from beginning to end: design > manufacture > installation
  • provides earlier access to follow-on trades
  • simplifies installation and minimises risk
  • introduces cost certainty and tighter scheduling to the project.
