At Sotech, we aim to deliver the highest quality of service to the architects we work with, offering our technical advice on a rainscreen cladding solution that’s right for them.
This ethos also extends to our website, which is constantly being updated and developed to reflect what we believe architects need to make a decision about their specification.
Back in October 2014, we wrote a blog on 6 ways that architects can make the most of the Sotech website – we wanted to update that and give you a new guide on getting the best from our online cladding destination for 2016.
EXPLORE OUR PROJECT MAP
We are based in the North East, but supply our Optima rainscreen cladding systems to a huge range of projects across the whole of the UK. We wanted a way to showcase our portfolio that allows architects to easily see case studies of a product or material of their choice according to their location.
GET CLUED UP ON CLADDING
We know that our clients aren’t necessarily rainscreen cladding experts – that’s why we’re here. However, gaining a basic understanding of what rainscreen cladding is and how it can apply to your project can be key to specifying the right solution for you.
To give you more context on rainscreen cladding and its applications, we launched this new webpage; read about rainscreen itself, what makes us different from other manufacturers, and then browse our range of systems directly.
MORE WAYS TO LEARN
As well as our rainscreen cladding page, we have a new section on our site dedicated to the learning zone at our head office in Peterlee.
Complete with a short video to give you a brief tour of our learning zone, which is designed for architects and installers alike, our learning page informs you on the kind of workshops and events that take place, as well as what you could find out by visiting.
The learning zone has hosted a range of CPD’s throughout the year specific to architects and customers’ needs. To arrange or a tailored CPD please contact our technical line.
KEEP UP WITH OUR CASE STUDIES
We’ve always promoted our case studies here on our website, but in 2015 we took things up a notch; we’ve travelled up and down the UK to capture videos and photos of our latest stunning projects so that we can show you what our systems, materials and finishes look like in action. Whether you’re looking to specify or just for some rainscreen cladding inspiration, you’re sure to find what you need over on our Case Studies page. There’s also the added feature of being able to click straight through to any of the products that were used on the case study, making identifying the right system for your project even easier.
