Facade Design

A facade is a term used to describe an exterior of a building. Typically we are talking about the front side of the building, but technically the term refers to any exterior side. When it comes to architecture, the facade of any building is usually a crucial aspect from a design perspective because it determines the overall character of the building as determined by an outside observer. This is the first thing that visitors see before entering a building and is one of the features which will most be associated with the building.

Curtain Wall design

An architectural curtain wall system is the exterior walls of the building, which are not in any way structural. These walls merely keep the occupants of the building safe from the natural elements. The curtain wall system incorporates lightweight material and architects apply this system as a way of reducing the construction costs. The system also increases the penetration of natural light, thereby reducing the electricity bills for the building.

In the past, curtain wall systems used steel and glass, but advancement in construction designs has allowed the use of an aluminium structure filled with glass to create an architectural masterpiece. Here are the different curtain wall design services that  Burchell Design Services offer. 

Stick systems: – Installation of the curtain wall is by the use of long pieces of glass otherwise known as sticks, between floors vertically or horizontally. Fabrication of the frame is possible in a shop, but the installation and grazing processes completed on site.

 

Unitized Systems: – This system involves the fabrication and assembly of the curtain wall panels in a factory. Some will include factory glazing though it is not always the case. The completed panels form the building’s enclosure. This type of system uses lower onsite installation costs, faster installation time, and a high degree of quality control.

Our curtain wall designers have the expertise to come up with designs that will handle any load set on the curtain wall as well as keeping air and water from getting into the interior of the building.
