About Guthrie Douglas Group Limited
We are a unique team of specialist engineers with the sole focus of creating technical shading systems for extraordinary spaces.
Creating solar shading systems for extraordinary spaces. We can analyse your building to regulate heat gain and glare, whatever the angle or size of the glazing.
We seek to collaborate with architects and design teams as early in the process as possible, to specify a shading system specific to your project, that will disappear into its surroundings when not in use, harnessing the power of light and shade as positive architectural features, rather than restrictions or problems to be overcome later.
Sometimes great design is about what you can’t see. Building physics modelling and specialist mechanical and electrical engineering create shading systems that work in tune with aesthetics and atmosphere, evolving together with the building design, and delivering both efficacy and elegance.
