Choosing the right type of glass for the building is not an easy task. Requirements for residential buildings are much different than those of office buildings or hotels. Many trends come to different markets which might not be suitable in terms of climatic or social requirements. Therefore as Facade Consultants we have to be very careful in understanding the Client’s requirements.
One of our projects that had very unique requirements is the screen between Dubai Mall and the Ski Slope, while the glass had to provide the proper insulation between the cold environment and the mall area it also had to give a clear image for those interested in watching the activities at the ski side.
Glass Consulting also includes investigation of spontaneous breakage, distortion, humidity problems and discoloration. Having a facade consultant on board from the beginning could spare many parties lengthy disputes at the end of the project and a clearer expectation for end results.
