Façade System Design And Development
Extensive industry experience has made CGS Façade Group aware of the fact that proper designing is the cornerstone of any successful curtainwall or façade project. Utilising a perfect mix of superior engineering skills, technical knowhow, and customer centric service philosophy, we deliver custom façade design and development solutions for all our clients.
Façade design considerations may range from the performance and aesthetic requirements determined working in tandem with an architect, to the fabrication and installation needs that have a significant impact on the successful completion of the project. Our in-house façade designer team has a long history of designing and developing façade systems conforming to the highest standards.
We have the experience and expertise to provide engineered solutions for the most challenging façade systems that may include developing a concept for BIM façades, virtual construction, façade simulation, and much more. Apart from BIM and 3D modelling, we can also help you with all types of analytic solutions ranging between FEA (finite-element analysis) and CFD (computational fluid dynamics). Our high level of proficiency in simulation and visualisation has proven extremely valuable to many of our projects.
Some of Our Key Façade Design and Development Capabilities
The ultimate fate of a challenging building façade project often depends on its conceptual design. Our design team can significantly enhance the success probability of your projects by providing support in the form of design development, material usage and applications, constructability review, valued engineering and much more.
3D Modelling and Form-Finding
Dealing with complicated building forms and surface geometry is an integral part of creating innovatively designed façades and curtainwall systems. CGS Façade Engineering offers specialised skills in the advanced techniques of 3D modelling as well as form-finding. Our wide usage of different softwares allow us to resolve any complex façade.
Analysis of façade systems
One of the most remarkable aspects of a façade system is that its different performance attributes can make a serious impact on the building’s overall behavior. This is why our process comprises of many different types of analysis related to the building façade, including thermal, acoustics, daylighting, spandrel panels/walls, and ventilations.
Our team of designers is noted for their expertise in traditional designing tasks related to building envelopes such as thermal, wind loads, building movements, point loads and rope load by abseiling. We have also successfully performed non-linear analysis for several advanced façade designs such as cable structures and blast designs.
Advanced Simulation and Visualisation
We employ a wide range of visualisation and analytical tools to create different building behavior simulations.
BIM or Building Information Modelling
BIM is an emerging technology that we have been deeply involved with for many of our projects. Though this technology tends to vary significantly between projects, our team has demonstrated the ability to adapt to any level of Building Information Modelling development.
