Fast Grow
Frame Fast UK has smashed its own goals with glass unit production, as it’s now manufacturing more than 1,300 insulated glass units every week.
“Opening the glass factory has been a big benefit to customers,” says Nigel Leivers, director at Derby based manufacturer Frame Fast. “We have seen production continue to grow as demand has continued to rise. In fact, it’s grown so much that we’ve had to make more space for glass production.
“We have added another 10,000 square feet of factory space. Both roof manufacture and aluminium window and door fabrication have moved to give them more space. Glass production has a new, much larger, home too. The £60,000 investment in machinery means we needed more space and we wanted to put glass production into a place where there was space for it to grow even more.”
Alongside the production of IGUs Frame Fast also has a decorative glass division where craftsmen hand make every design. It has attracted a lot of interest especially for entrance doors as homeowners often want to make a real statement. Now that the move is complete, Frame Fast has also custom-made its own logo in glass.
“Customers can get exactly what they want from Frame Fast’s glass factory,” says Leivers. “It makes it even easier to order the glass and frames together, and that means one delivery or collection. It’s been a real success for everyone.” ❐
   The second edition of the CIC BIM protocol is intended to reflect current practices and standards and to be a more flexible document to use alongside different contractual arrangements. It will fit more easily with the other documents in the contractual matrix and shows a greater understanding of the need to integrate the legal and technical aspects of BIM, an issue which needs to be addressed to ensure that BIM projects have a clear and well defined delivery mechanism.As such it marks a significant development on the first edition and will certainly contribute towards the growing standardisation of BIM legal and contractual documentation.
