Sigma II Build System reaches new heights

Award winning Sigma II Build System can now support structures up to six storeys, extending benefits to a wider market

Stewart Milne Timber Systems has unveiled a new development to its award winning Sigma II Build System that will enable more customers to capitalise on the associated benefits of the BBA certified product.

The Sigma II Build System can now support structures up to six storeys thanks to the company’s commitment to innovation and investment in R&D.

The enhanced Sigma II Build System will allow more Stewart Milne Timber Systems’ customers to take advantage of the increased speed of build, reduced material costs and excellent air tightness afforded by the product.

The company already supplies a large number of projects across the UK, from its factories in Oxford and Aberdeen, delivering cost effective products to support sustainable building in the hospitality, retail and education sectors, as well as residential developments. This advanced Sigma II Build System can now be deployed on a broader range of multi-storey projects ranging from commercial property developments and hotels, to residential schemes like apartment blocks and student accommodation.

Alex Goodfellow, Group Managing Director of Stewart Milne Timber Systems, said: “Through continued investment in research and development, we are able to challenge the status quo of the market place and this has been the catalyst for our most recent innovation with the Sigma II Build System.

“By increasing the number of storeys available to our customers, we have significantly grown our own potential market and extended the financial and sustainability benefits afforded to customers choosing timber systems to a much larger group.

“The construction industry was hit hard by the recession and continues to contend with restrictive finance. As a supplier to the sector, it’s important we demonstrate added value by investing in product development and exploring new cost effective options which align with our customers’ objectives. Only through a targeted focus on innovation can we ensure we develop a suite of products which are superior in the market.”

Fergus Ewing MSP, Scotland’s Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, recently visited Stewart Milne Timber System’s Aberdeen headquarters and got a sneak preview of the company’s latest product development.

 Mr Ewing said: “Innovative companies form the cornerstone of stimulating market growth, which is why I was delighted to see first-hand the good work being carried out by Stewart Milne Timber Systems.”

Mr Goodfellow added: “In the last decade the market has changed with businesses required to do things faster, better, and more cost effectively than ever before. Innovation is no longer an option, it’s imperative for long term success.” The company which has offices across the UK designs and manufactures a wide range of timber systems for commercial and residential developments and places innovation and product development at the heart of its business to create new opportunities and maintain its competitive edge.
