Facade System Design
Our focus to develop high performance energy efficient facade products for future markets. We do research and development for our future requirements. A thoughtfully designed facade product can make a new building work more effectively for its environment.
A building’s facade products play a crucial role in heat and light exchange. Its performance in that role affects occupant comfort and productivity, energy use and running costs. Therefor we always prefer to design products by utilizing our expertise in material science & building physics.
Facade Structural Calculations & FEA
We deliver all the calculations needed for the different facade applications like curtain walls, Skylights, spider glass curtain walls, steel structures, cladding systems and rain screens, railings etc. The design of facade requires advanced methodology and therefore there is a need of specialized structural engineers & designers, with good experience in facade.
Our design is based always on International Building Codes mainly for safety and legal concern. We are familiar with all major facade standards like BS, European, American, UBC, IBC, IS, AS, Saudi, Seismic Analysis, Wind Analysis etc. Our FEA consulting services help you address a range of structural and thermal analysis challenges with accurate, timely and cost-effective solutions.
Thermal & Condensation Analysis
We are able to carry out thermal analyses to EN and US standards, U-Value calculations, condensation and risk assessments to assist the development process. Thermal analysis calculates the temperature and heat transfer within and between components in a design and its environment. This involves the evaluation of the thermal performance of a framework and evaluation of partial or global U-values of a building envelope.
Facade Shop Drawings
Every one of us needs to see our Building Envelope more aesthetically feasible and economical. For achieving that, we need to conduct a detailed study about facade. Shop drawings are playing an important role for facade study. It will make sure that system will fit at site. Our engineers are specialized in shop drawing preparation and they are already have good experience in high rise building from facade design industry..
Facade Shop Front Drawing, Storefront Shop Drawings or Shop drawing refers to a set of drawings that are considered to be critical to all prefabricated components in a building project. In general, these drawings are more detailed compared to an architectural drawing and created to explain the facade as intended by the architect
Shop drawings are now considered to be the backbone of any building facade project. These drawings include the building structure and all the interfaces. Our experienced team of facade engineers specialist in delivering custom facade shop drawings for a wide range of projects.
Top class facade shop drawing from Facade Global not only helps our clients obtain architectural approval, but is also utilized by them as a road-map for the completion of a profitable project. Our shop drawings offer a true reflection of the shape and structure of the building facade at all locations.
Facade Fabrication Drawings
Fabrication drawing refers to a special type of detailed drawing that includes a list of material parts identifying the different materials, cutting lengths and orientation of the material as first or third angle of projection for the factory.
Facade Global has created a system of fabrication drawing with release procedures for the factory. It is unique to our operations. We have a dedicated team of skilled draftsmen and fabrication industry experts to support all your drawing needs.
We utilize the latest software tools including 3D modelling to provide a complete set of fabrication drawings to the factory. This proficiency of our experts has been instrumental in hassle-free completion of many of our facade building projects, saving time and money for our clients.
BIM & 3D Modeling
Facade areas which are difficult to visualize when drawn in two dimensions, complicated assembly details, and intricate components can be presented in isometric studies, or can be modeled in 3D using CAD.
3D models are considered to be extremely useful in explaining or demonstrating any design pattern that is unusual or complex in nature. In the field of facade engineering, 3D modelling offers a plethora of benefits including that of saving time during the design phase of the project by reducing the number of steps. It also helps the designers retain all the finer design details in their final plan. By using this technique, the architects can visualize the physical spaces within a building so that the probable issues are identified and addressed in a timely manner. 3D modelling helps us with defining all critical panel construction and interfaces.
