Visualising your goal
At Base we offer a tensile fabric design service like no other. Guided by Mark White, one of the most experienced tensile fabric structure designers in the UK, our in-house team has worked on some of the most iconic tensile fabric structures ever created in the UK. Using the latest CAD technologies and in-house NDN software, we offer the complete service, from concept visualisation (in CAD or 3D), through to form finding, load analysis, patterning and designing the critical interactive junction between steel and fabric.
We’re also just as happy working alongside your design team, whether adding that extra layer of specialisation to make your designs complete, or turning initial sketches or ideas into full design plans. And because we gain input from all areas of the process (testing, manufacture, build, maintenance) every concept is driven by sound experience of what works and what doesn’t. This means any complications are designed out early on, ensuring every design we deliver is realistic and achievable, saving you delays and extra costs. We also have the equipment and knowledge necessary to rigorously test every fabric detail, ensuring you gain a quality product that realises its full anticipated lifespan.
Whether you’re at concept development stage or just looking for that initial creative spark, why not take a look at our Inspiration section. You’ll find a free sketch modelling tool; innovative design ideas from cladding to interiors; as well as our recommended reading.
