SERVICES

FAÇADE CONSULTING

FAÇADE CONSULTING describes a range of services both during the design or pre-tender stage, called Pre-Construction, and during the actual construction called Post-Award or Construction Phase Services. Pre-tender work typically comprises advising the architect/ engineer during the concept design phase, providing the technical review of tenders.

CURTAIN WALL TESTING

CURTAIN WALLS have to keep the weather out and the people in. We provide design review (“Façade Consulting”) and full-scale testing to make sure that these systems do this reliably for the life of the building. Premature failure is likely to dramatically reduce building life because replacement or repair is a massive undertaking requiring a vacant building, extensive exterior access and replacement of all interior finishes in perimeter rooms. For this reason prudent developers insist on having an independent Façade Consultant on board and ‘Mock-Up’ Testing for all their tall buildings.

FIRE COMPLIANCE

FIRE TESTING, INSPECTION AND CERTIFICATION for passive fire protection systems – the materials of the building as opposed to the alarms, signs and sprinklers that activate when there is a fire – are critical to building safety. We provide all three with accreditation to an impressive range of UK, US and EU fire test standards. We are by far the largest fire testing laboratory in the wider region.

ACCREDITATION

We are accredited for a large number of curtain wall tests and fire tests to a range of standards from the UK, the US and Europe. Our scope under each standard and Accreditation Body is available on their respective websites that you may visit below:
