Structal (UK) Ltd is the English subsidiary of Rinaldi Structal SA.
Structal (UK) Ltd is a subsidiary of Rinaldi Structal SA who have been part of the CORALU Group of Companies since 2003.
The UK operation which was established in 1985 has now carried out over 100 projects during this time. Making use of the systems predominantly produced in France, we provide a complete service to the construction industry, encompassing estimating, design, surveying and project management and site management installation.
To become one of the leading companies in Europe, Structal (UK) Ltd have a commitment not only to design, but also high levels of efficiency throughout the organisation. To this aim, the company has invested both time and money in people, research and development and the very latest production techniques. We are thus able to offer a service which not only recognises new developments within this country, but also those throughout Europe, building on our reputation for innovation and professionalism, and our ability to deliver good quality projects on time.
Rinaldi Structal SA has its own integrated research, testing and development centre equipped with the latest computer tools for graphic design and calculation they turn architectural inspirations into practical design solutions.
Once the concept details have been established with the architect and design team, Structal (UK) Ltd assume full responsibility for the project detailing. Here we complete set out details, builders work drawing and general arrangement drawings which are produced prior to production. This ensures the delivery of a unique building envelope design capable of performing throughout the lifetime of the building.
Following the handover of the contract details to the project team, all design procurement, production and site installation matters are dealt with by the UK project manager.
Our products are manufactured in Rinaldi Structal SA, Pinon production plant where ISO 9001-certified quality standards are maintained at each stage of the seven production lines to ensure the highest level of factory-controlled product quality.
The product range currently covers the entire spectrum of commercial unitised/stick/unitised timber, curtain walling, windows, doors, rainscreen systems, roof glazing, cladding louvres plus stone and terracotta integrated solutions.
Whilst in house testing takes place at Rinaldi Structal SA, Structal (UK) Ltd also carry out external performance testing with UKAS-accredited test houses to facilitate full-scale double storey CWCT sequence B performance with the dynamic aero-engine facility.
Site installation of prefabricated curtain walling is the end result of early design agreements and off-site factory-controlled panel assembly. Stick systems will also be installed with documented site quality controls.
The architectural diversity and structure material constraints of each project require fixing design solutions to suit each type of building from high-rise towers to lower-rise projects with moderate building movements.
Roof-mounted cranes, tower cranes, floor-mounted hydraulic machines and mobile external cranes are all options available for panel installation depending on the site conditions, programme and the panel sizes used on each project.
Every project has its own Project Manager who, along with the Site Manager, controls all aspects of site quality and installation with approved method statements, risk assessments and site check lists.
