While appropriate material selection is a key contributor to the successful performance of a building, materials also provide some of the greatest opportunities for creativity and exploration in the built environment. But with the rapid expansion of material and product developments new methods of working are needed to keep pace.
This is where Materials Council comes in, cutting through the proliferation of products out there and offering specialist advice to individuals and on projects.
Analogous to the design process, Materials Council adopts a rational materials selection methodology as part of an integrated design approach, informing and advising on options based on their appropriateness for the individual application, context and required performance.
Materials Council also bridges the manufacturing and architectural industries, translating technical data, material performance and constraints, and communicates them to designers in clear, visual and immediate terms.
Our services advance the understanding of materials, aid decision making, facilitate communication amongst colleagues and with clients and, ultimately, enable you to successfully execute your creative vision.
In all of these activities, Materials Council remains discretely in the background, leaving the entire focus on the professional expertise and brand of the individual firm of architects.
Completely independent from manufacturers, our consultancy is not influenced or compromised by our relationship to industry.
