Facade Engineering Services
Concept / Systems Design
Systems Design is our core expertise. As well as one of the most important stages of Facade Engineering studies.
We study facade concepts with detailed solutions and technical feasibility that will respect the project’s design standards and architect’s intend.
- Develop technical plan for all the different facade areas, types, elements.
- Project specific adaptation of existing facade systems.
- Design of all typical details, as the basis of structural design plan
Analysis of the existing planning approval for completeness and feasibility. Always in close collaboration with the facade contractor:
- Assessment of the planning approval (IFC Drawings).
- Optimization of the design and assembly plan according to client’s needs.
- Clarification of the responsibilities and planning-relevant parameters. In collaboration with the developer and client.
- Drafting of Shop Drawings.
- Construction of all sections and identification of all materials, qualities, fittings and surfaces.
- Review and adaptation of drawings during the approval phase.
Facade Structural Calculations
Analysis and static calculations of profiles, glass, cladding, fixings etc in 2 or 3 dimensions. Evidence is provided n the basis of the applicable international or national standards.
- Profile and glass structural specifications.
- Project structural analysis.
- Structural evidence depending on the region based on EN / BS / AA standards or Eurocode.
We undertake to define exactly the materials to be used. Their quality criteria and how they should be processed.
- Preparation of the orders for all necessary materials.
- Check the technical data submitted for the materials.
- Comparison of the materials proposed by the contractor with the specified materials.
- Cutting list for fixed length optimization, surface treatment, allocation to assemblies and construction lots.
We supply all planning documents for the construction of the planned facades.
- Preparation and provision of construction drawings (Working Drawings).
- Compilation of all documents from the shop drawings with the production drawings and installation drawings, the static and structural calculations right through the material lists.
- Identification of individual parts with allocation to individual production lots according to quantity, design and size.
Coordination of the handover of the completed facade to the client.
Preparation of the as-built drawings, the documentation of the facade that was actually built.
All materials for building skins. Glass, metal cladding, doors / windows, ceramics, terracotta, louvers, fins, spiders etc.
