From design intent to final handover, Archard has the expertise to manage the entire ironmongery package for the most complex of projects.

Archard works with the design team to provide a full door and ironmongery solution, taking into account design intent, functionality, fire standards and building codes.


Doors and Ironmongery are a complex component of any building development that must marry aesthetics, functionality, and fire safety – requiring clear communication & coordination between designers, contractors, door manufacturers and access control suppliers alike.


Archard is vendor independent, enabling it to optimize ironmongery selection that is best suited to project, without being obliged to the limited product range of a particular supplier.


Archard can manage the entire process of distribution and installation of ironmongery on site, and can implement a system that will strictly guarantee all hardware is prepared and issued for each door respectively prior to installation by the site contracting team.


Our approach has demonstrated significant positive results on project workflow efficiencies, on completed projects offering time and cost saving benefits to the client by negating common potential site coordination problems.
