Structural Design

In all buildings the coordination between structure and façade components is essential for avoiding construction issues caused by incompatible movement and/or tolerance discrepancies between structural frames and cladding elements. This is even more critical for tall buildings where the method of construction and in service movements such as creep, inter-storey drift, floor-to-floor deflection and wind sensitivity impact directly on the design of the cladding system. Our extensive experience as industry professionals enables us to bring a coordinated façade/structure interface for all cladding systems in the project.

We are skilled in:

  • Curtainwall and cladding calculations

  • Glass strength calculations

  • Design of load bearing glass structures

  • Design of non-linear and tension structures

  • High wind, impact and blast resistant design
