Building Envelope Concepts

What we do

After the system is designed we then proceed with shop drawings to make sure that all details and interfacing are known and thus allowing the adjoining contractors to know the sequence of installation to ensure that the fa?ade results in a watertight condition.

Once the shop drawings are completed and approved by the architect and consultant, we then follow up with detailed production drawings to make sure that any factory staff will be able to read and fabricate from these documents.

Our production documentation also involves cutting lists that enable all materials to be properly marked prior to processing and thus minimizing wastage. From our cutting lists one would be able to track down any component and cross check at the same the progress for that area that is being manufactured. Grouping of the components allows the materials to be properly allocated and thus making the job of the material coordinator easier regarding planning of the outsourcing of processing or the material itself. We also provide a pallet schedule that makes delivery of panels on site to be done with precision thus saving on handling by crane.

What is curtain wall?
Curtain Wall is a term used to describe a building facade which does not carry any dead load from the building other than its own dead load. These loads are transferred to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, wind forces acting on the building, seismic forces, and its own dead load forces.
Curtain walls are typically designed with extruded aluminum members, although the first curtain walls were made of steel. The aluminum frame is typically infilled with glass, which provides an architecturally pleasing building, as well as benefits such as daylighting and environmental control. Other common infills include: stone veneer, metal panels, louvers, and operable windows or vents.
Curtain walls differ from storefront systems in that they are designed to span multiple floors, and take into consideration design requirements such as: thermal expansion and contraction; building sway and movement; water diversion; and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling, and lighting in the building.

We have successfully completed projects having pressure equalized envelopes such as a Unitised System, Semi-Unitised System or Stick System. The Curtain is rigidly tested according to Australian Standards or as stipulated in the specifications.
