Design professionals like architects and interior designers often book appointments with us to discuss our product range and which product will best suit their latest design project.
If you are designing a residential or commercial space and considering our on-trend Porta Contours, we can discuss the requirements of the project, both aesthetic and practical, as well as the benefits of specifying timber in terms of biophilic design principles.
If you are renovating a period building with existing mouldings and lining boards, or you have a unique profile that you would like for a new build or renovation – our custom design service can deliver the exact profile that you dream of.
Your brief serves as the foundation, it may take the form of a sample, a dimensioned sketch, or a technical drawing.
Our design consultants and engineers take this brief and use CAD to design the profile to the exact specification required. Once the profile is designed in CAD, we make a sample on a 3D printer for your approval, then the tooling process begins.
Whilst we are designing the profile, we work with you to source the most suitable timber species for your project.
Upon approval of our quote, we manufacture a custom tool that is unique to every project subsequently production commences.
Our custom moulding capability also applies to external timbers. Our product development and design team love working on custom projects to create your own custom profile, please contact us and our team will work with you on a custom timber specification that is tailored to your requirements.
Our industry leading experts are invited to present informative Continual Professional Development (CPD) sessions to architecture firms Australia-wide.
Porta is committed to providing architects and designers with the knowledge and resources to specify and design timber for optimal performance.
Porta’s CPD presentations have been created to inform architects, and design professionals who love the feel, warmth, and aesthetics of using timber in their designs.
We offer an in-house presentation that provides a valuable opportunity to expand design and technical knowledge. Porta’s presentations build on the understanding of designing with timber including design principles, along with updates on the latest timber products and services.
