Design Scope:

Façade Consultation & Engineering, Façade Design Certification and Shop Drawing. The challenge was to resolve an unconventional concept idea of the façade that is fixing 3 levels of frameless glass to horizontal steel beams. We started by analysing horizontal steel beam deflections and façade deflections, and concluded that hole positions on the glass and smart choice of spider patch fitting is the key to making sure the glass is safe during its life span. Moreover, we advised the builder to install the glass in a preferred sequence that reduced the impact of deflection caused by the steel beam and the wind load.
