What is COACH?

More than 25 years’ experience of working with architects and builders has given us deep insight into what the market wants – and what helps specifiers get the results they are looking for. Our unique online tool, COACH, was born out of a desire to make compliant balcony design as simple as possible across the world.

COACH is the latest enhancement to CABS our Computer Aided Balcony Specifier, and the complete new suite was launched in December 2020. 

COACH is a free online software suite which currently enables you to design and specify your balconies, either from a predesigned option from our library, within certain parameters or from scratch. COACH intuitively guides you through the progress, so that within minutes you can create your full specification in a photorealistic 3D model with all the outputs you need ready to download.

We are extensively investing in COACH to enhance the existing suite. Some of the future features on the COACH journey include:

  • Computerised pricing of your balcony design
  • Tender submissions for your balcony design
  • Automatic structural calculations
  • Generating the quality process for each balcony
  • Automated production drawings
  • Guidance tips based on the location of the project.
  • Computer created BIM files
  • Value engineering analysis
  • Standard design library for customers

A Collaborative Journey: Faster. Simpler. Smoother.

COACH enables you to create compliant balcony designs faster whilst giving you the detail you require to adequately specify the product. When using COACH and after use you will get access to a suite of design information. Including:

  • downloadable BIM/CAD compatible drawings
  • NBS specification
  • Drainage considerations
  • Fire Safety information
  • Structural detailing
  • Project design report
  • And more…

The tool continues to be developed with more features being rolled out in regular software updates, sign up below to be notified of future updates.
