Movable elements are increasingly important building components – especially in sports, public assembly and cultural facilities, and in sustainable buildings. Retractable roofs, operable walls and doors, and convertible seating create functional, flexible spaces that enhance the overall user experience.
The successful integration of kinetic features requires structural and mechanization systems that complement one another. We work with project stakeholders to define the underlying functional requirements and their effects on aesthetic goals. We apply the combined expertise of our structural engineers, façade engineers, sustainability experts and construction engineering specialists to develop a holistic approach to optimize the balance between aesthetics, efficiency, constructability and cost.
We look beyond the conventional answers – considering the full range of systems, design consultants and procurement options – to help the project team find integrated and holistic solutions that provide the best value for each individual project.
