Glass combines transparency with solidity. Its timeless beauty works from outside-in and inside-out. But it’s heavy. It’s relatively fragile. And its thermal properties can make indoor spaces too hot or too cold, requiring extra energy for temperature control.

Our façade consultants use cutting-edge modeling to understand and optimize designs. We offer engineering support at every step, from structural analyses to aesthetic recommendations and energy performance. Our expertise in glazed-façade and structural-glass construction includes unitized aluminum frames, stick-built metal frames, steel cable supports, structural glass fin supports and glass stairs and balustrades.
