Research & Design

Bankside Patterson Frames offer a comprehensive service to customers on all aspects of specification and use of our range. The specification needs vary from project to project but we are able to provide solutions to meet your design needs.

Build to customer specification

All frames for modular buildings are built to our customer's specifications and dimensions. This gives our customers the control they need to optimise the frame for distribution of services and other features required for subsequent build activities.

The definition of our supply is defined in BS EN 1090-1:2009+A1:20011, Table A.1

Method 1
The basis of manufacture is "MPCS", or Manufacturer Provided Component Specification. In this method, Bankside Patterson LTD draw and supply the drawings to the design brief provided by the customer. Then, they are approved by the customer. The customer is the design authority and any subsequent revisions to the specification must be directed through the approval route.
