    As independent façade specialists, we select the system most suitable for a given project, depending on building geometry, function, end product quality expectations, programme, etc. With large enough projects, such as high-rise buildings, the quantity justifies and requires fully custom designed system solutions. For lesser quantities, we assist with product selection and application of existing systems. Thanks to a broad spread of project experience within our multinational team, we have in-house knowledge on a large range of possible solutions. Glazed enclosure system choices include:

    • Unitized curtain walling
    • Semi-unitized systems
    • Stick system curtain walling

    • Glazed skylights
