A new team at materials supplier James Latham will connect architects, designers and specifiers with the most innovative and exciting products on the market today.
Bringing together expertise and insight from around the company, the Lathams Specification Team has been launched as a one-stop solution for materials specifiers.
There is a strong focus on products with unique benefits, including solid surfaces, hardwearing laminates, antimicrobial acrylics and robust exterior cladding.
Aesthetics are well catered for as well, with the team able to recommend a range of surfaces, finishes, colours and styles suitable for any project.
These include products that mimic other materials, such as decors that replicate the look and feel of various stones, woods and linens.
Rob Goodman, who leads the team, commented: “There are many high-quality, advanced products being brought to market all of the time. It’s easy for specifiers to lose track of what’s available or just stick to what they know.
“What they are often unaware of is the broad range of options available to achieve that final finish that a customer has requested.
“By creating a single point of contact we can better support the A&D community and help them to find the right solution for their client’s brief.”
The team’s knowledge incorporates a broad product portfolio including solid surfaces such as HI-MACS and Avonite and decorative laminates and veneers from manufacturers including Egger, Xylocleaf, Kronospan and Decospan.
While currently offering consultancy via video conferencing, the team will support customers nationwide, corresponding with the locations of Lathams various showrooms and depots.
The specification team consists of Debbie Northall (London), Joe Sepede (Yate, Thurrock and Hemel Hempstead), Natasha Smith (Dudley and Leicester), Mark Robinson (Leeds, Ireland and North West England) and David Schofield (Leeds, Gateshead and Scotland).
To coincide with the announcement of the new team, a solid surfaces website has also gone live, providing an additional detailed product resource for specifiers and customers.
Featuring product information, case studies, videos and inspirational images from HI-MACS, Avonite and Studio Collection brands, it offers guidance and support on the specification of solid surfaces for a range of architectural applications, both internally and externally.
