Partnering with architects and building contractors

Taylor Maxwell have been partnering with architects and building contractors for over 60 years to provide design guidance on suitable building materials for their construction projects. We offer a range of traditional materials such as bricks and masonry, as well as more contemporary rainscreen cladding systems including terracotta, natural slate, metal and mesh, brick, fibre cement and stone.

Design Concept

Our long standing relationships with key suppliers across the UK and Europe means that we can facilitate design meetings and consultation throughout all stages of the project timeline.

We believe the most successful construction projects come from a culture of early collaboration and open discussion through technical design workshops. These can be organised for a convenient time at your office, online via video call or at one of our product showrooms.

These workshops are a great opportunity for us to provide product samples and images of products on completed projects for facade inspiration. Using our interactive peg boards, located in our city centre showrooms, you can create a project moodboard. Once your products have been selected, we can provide all of the technical data for the specification and drawing of the overall wall build-up.
