Novum Structures

Novum’s mission is to produce and construct architectural structures and their enclosures for diverse clients through the application of innovative technology, excellent engineering and a strong emphasis on client satisfaction.

Be it speciality glazing or membrane (ETFE) structures, each project is analysed individually so that our highly skilled in-house engineers can offer the best advice to make the architect’s vision a stunning reality. We are project driven not product driven.

Experience has shown that early involvement in scheme design can be very cost effective, as we can advise on our structures’ capabilities, especially with regard to their interface with other areas of the build. This early involvement reduces costly and time-consuming revisions at a later stage.

Novum provides a one-stop-shop when it comes to design or fabrication of integrated solutions for membrane, speciality glazing and structure.

Design development and pre-construction

In the development phase we listen to the client team, asking questions, prioritising needs and identifying possible solutions and options.

Engineering and project execution

Transitioning from design to execution requires attention to detail. Novum excels at delivering the project management, planning, analysis engineering manufacturing, sourcing, logistics and site management that drives projects to completion on-time and within budget. Novum structural systems and membranes are fabricated in our own facilities, providing excellent control over both quality and programme.


Novum’s commitment to client satisfaction extends beyond project completion. Warranty support and maintenance are an integral part of every Novum project, whether ETFE or glass, providing clients with the security of knowing that Novum’s care extends beyond initial occupancy.

ETFE air-filled pillows

Using a strategically placed inflation unit, ETFE pillows are inflated to give structural strength and stability. U-value requirements can be met by using a multi-layered system; light transmissions and solar heat gain can also be controlled by using different colour foils or by overprinting the ETFE itself. The pillows can also use backlighting to create dramatic night time effects and visual impact. Lightweight membranes offer the opportunity for large, economical structures, and are ideal for sports halls, and swimming pools.

ETFE stressed skin membrane

An economical solution for lightweight structures where U-values are not a consideration. The ETFE can be supplied in coloured or printed format.
