Building Skin

Our multidisciplinary team of building skin specialists brings decades of experience providing design, consulting, engineering and construction support to clients around the world. We integrate building skin and structural designs in new buildings, renovations and recladding projects, with scope and service offerings that can be tailored to accommodate the specific needs and budget of any project.

As architects push building forms into new territory, building skin designs have evolved to meet new geometric complexities. Faceted designs and thinner, more delicate enclosures are becoming the norm. These aesthetic qualities must be achieved without sacrificing performance requirements dictated by unique local conditions, sustainability objectives, demanding schedules and budget constraints.

Our teams provide façade consulting to architects, building owners and developers at all project stages. We offer a suite of specialty analyses, either as stand-alone services or as part of a broader scope, that solve complex design challenges, improve constructability, maximize energy efficiency and increase security. We also perform a range of construction support consulting services to assist contractors during bidding, negotiation, value engineering, post-contract review and site supervision.

Building skins vary as widely as an architect’s imagination, with equally diverse solutions by engineers, contractors and manufacturers. Our expertise in systems and materials ranges from traditional curtain walls to innovative custom design solutions. Our capabilities in 3D parametric and building information modeling allow us to work directly with a variety of manufacturers worldwide on design, consulting, engineering and installation of these systems.
