We offer a comprehensive multidisciplinary service, covering design and consultancy in all project phases. Our experience also covers all scales and all climates.
Integrated façade service
Our team of façade engineering experts work closely with architects, structural engineers, contractors, manufacturers, installation specialists and consultants within sustainability and environmental issues, to deliver fully integrated solutions.
Constructing façades is a considerable task, which often accounts for over 25% of a construction budget. We add value to the project by offering detailed analysis that enables us to help meet our clients’ individual needs and provide highly efficient solutions.
Comprehensive façade expertise
We have extensive experience with full-scale testing and performance analysis of materials and products, and we continually contribute to development programmes covering materials, component design and procurement.
Our knowledge-base also includes a thorough understanding of commercial products and systems, which aids cost comparison and specification, and improves the ability to customise or create new detailing.
When determining how to design and construct a particular façade, variables such as structure, thermal performance measures, use of materials, and the interfaces between them, all need to be considered. These are crucial for achieving water- and airtightness and ensuring high performance.
Functional, sustainable and attractive facades
We have expertise in combining all the variables of aesthetics, structure, performance and materials to create innovative solutions that are functional, sustainable and visually pleasing.
A well-designed façade contributes to the low-energy credentials of a building and our team work closely with building services and environmental and sustainability consultants to ensure that the façade is always an integral part of a building’s energy strategy.
