Why Look at ETFE and Tensile Construction Consultancy?
Our experienced ETFE and Tensile construction consultant professionals provide effective leadership, sharp attention to detail and a valued partnership you can count on throughout the life of your project.
The construction industry has been for many years, and will continue to be, one on the most competitive of all industries. Main-contractors, Architects, suppliers and sub-contractors alike are continuously being asked to find ways in which to deliver projects more efficiently whilst providing more cost-effective deliverables. Competition is at the heart of most contracts awarded within the construction industry. With Shade Sculpture’s Tensile Architectural Consultancy ‘T.A.C’ for short, Shade Sculpture can provide the industry with full financial control and profitably when it comes to the procurement and delivery of tensile membrane projects such as sports stadium cable net systems, building facades, roofing, canopies and walkways.

With the construction industry employing best lump-sum competition bidding, or, best unit-price competition tendering as the primary method for awarding contracts to contractors, it is now more important than ever before to ensure all cost saving practices are employed.

Shade Sculpture’s consultancy management have overseen many large and high profile tensile architectural projects including but not limited to The Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, The Beira Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre, The Olympic Stadium in Kiev and the National Stadium Warsaw, The Greenpoint Stadium in Cape Town, The Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg and Wimbledon’s Centre Court.
