Façades

A façade is more than just exterior cladding or an outward-facing wall. It is a first impression – one that can seriously impact the functionality and aesthetic of your building.

Here's How

Our people are hands-on. Our people are team players. Our people will get the job done. With one of the largest and most respected façade engineering groups in our industry, we’ll work collaboratively with you throughout the design and construction process to deliver the best solution to any challenge. 

We are an active member of the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) in the UK and a member of the Façade Tectonics in the US, the two most recognized scientific international institutions in the façade engineering industry. And we are one of only two engineering firms that can provide a best-in-class facades consultancy and security consultancy within the same organization. 

Whether you’re an architect, building owner, contractor or developer, we offer a full range of façade services that span the building life cycle. We’ll take on your toughest design challenges and transform your vision into reality.


Custom-designed hinge mechanisms convert the 3D movement of the building, subjected to seismic acceleration, to one-dimensional pivoting of the panels. The 26- by 10-foot curved panels are thereby restrained to resist wind loads while allowing the superstructure to move freely.

Qualifications

Our 60+ strong team of façade specialists brings decades of experience providing design, consulting, engineering and construction support to clients around the world. Our team applies expertise in systems and materials to solve complex design challenges, improve constructability, maximize efficiency and increase security. 

We work collaboratively - with teams spanning across multiple states and countries - to share knowledge and expertise. We work worldwide with high-end design architects for award-winning architecture. And we are involved at all phases of design and construction, from concept scheme to detailed design, from specification writing and support during procurement to full monitoring services during manufacturing, testing and installation. We know what LEED, BREAM, WELL and other various sustainability schemes actually mean for façade, and we can help you achieve your targets.

In the technology-driven cladding industry, innovation comes with the territory. Nearly two-thirds of the façades we design and engineer are based on customized systems that involve unique combinations of materials.

Architectural intent and project-specific objectives, such as targets for thermal or acoustic performance, require novel design solutions. Our technological tools enables us to deliver high-functioning designs that have been validated by prototype testing. And we’re always developing more ways to innovate.

We know that you have challenges; we’re here to help you meet them. Our façade engineering services include: 

  • Materials Research
  • Specialty Analyses
  • Detailed Design
  • Engineering and Construction Support
  • Glass and Façade Failure Investigations
