At the forefront of the latest industry standards we deliver exceptional building envelope and facade services to improve the quality and efficiency of today’s buildings.
Excellent design and engineering is the corner stone of all good facade companies.
BES offers a complete range of specialist facade services, from design conception through to facade completion. So whether you're looking for a comprehensive facade engineering consultancy, undertake an individual inspection or require a specification report to meet compliance regulations, we can support you.
Today our technical department has 20 employees in the design and engineering department consisting of senior designers, system developers, structural engineers, mechanical engineers and draftsmen. All members of this team are highly qualified, with years of experience working on many different and varied projects. We utilize all the latest software and 3D design systems for material orders, production orders, general design work, drafting, structural modeling and thermal analysis.
From managing a new-build, to rectifying an existing one, or restoring a piece of architectural history, you can confidently depend on our facade expertise.
We complement architects, developers, project managers, main contractors, facade contractors and private houses– providing them with expert technical input.
We understand that every project and every client is different.
In every project the team demonstrates a complete understanding of the project requirements by utilizing the latest available products and meeting all required technical specifications. We ensure that all materials specified meet the economic, technical and visual parameters and translate the Architect's vision into optimised designs that the client can both appreciate and afford.
From architectural concept, preparation of facade performance specification, design development, through to off-site and on-site inspection, BES offers a complete facade and building envelope consultancy.
After we review and assess the proposed design with the developer and the architect we select the correct materials and systems for the project. We'll address any special design requirements and critique the schematic drawings and specs.
We evaluate the concept designs in terms of performance, budget and constructability, then develop the best envelope system to proceed with, including drawings, preliminary calculations and in conjunction with the project team we outline
facade performance criteria.
A full technical design audit of the subcontractor’s designs, calculations and thermal models. We will conduct drawing-specific reviews to check that the relative designs conform to the specification, the client’s requirements and meet all the technical, lifetime and performance requirements of the project.
We evaluate the bidders qualifications, propsal drawings and project understanding to identify the one most qualified to correctly complete the construction. Compliance checking alternative value bids is vital for you to make an informed decision and avoid the danger of accepting the lowest bid with the biggest errors.
We assess the causes of facade failure, recommend the remedial measures to take and can give expert advice on any resulting legal issues. We advocate starting the complex evaluation and approval process pre-assembly.
Looking to have your project evaluated?
Our highly qualified team establish the best building options available for your project and develop innovative facade design solutions that will provide optimal performance, constructability and satisfy budget constraints.
Through exceptional design, engineering and by applying improved practices BES strives to achieve excellence in all our facade projects.
Our expert engineers will provide facade concept development and design assistance to select the right system to meet the architect's vision and the required performance for your project.
Our highly specialised knowledge of materials, manufacturing technology, methods of assembly, application and commercial issues combined with our extensive experience of developing bespoke and cost effective product solutions mean we are able to produce market-driven facade system designs.
We produce comprehensive shop drawings including plans, elevations, schedules, sections and enlarged details to obtain the architects approval. Reflecting the structure and shape of the building’s façade at every location they provide a roadmap for project managers and installers that can greatly affect the profitability of any project.
We conduct a full structural analysis for all the facade components including, but not limited to fixings, brackets, glass, cladding, supporting frames, silicone, stone, etc. in accordance with international standards and project specifications using the latest software to provide our client with an optimal solution.
Thermal analysis calculates the temperature and heat transfer within and between the different components in the facade systems. At BES we carry out thermal analyses using finite element software to calculate the system u-value, the facade overall u-value and condensation (dew point).
BES has created a unique system of fabrication drawing with release procedures for the factory. Our skilled draftsmen and fabrication industry experts create detailed drawings identifying the different materials, cutting lengths and orientation as first or third angle of projection for the factory. This results in hassle-free completion and reduces time and cost.
We are experts in the increasingly complex methods and techniques available.
BES understands the implications of different facade solutions in terms of geometry, structural adequacy, performance, energy efficiency, procurement, fabrication, installation, program, and whole life costing.
We provide a fully tailored management, procurement, repair and refurbishment for facade systems to meet commercial demands of the construction industry.
The multi-faceted nature of facade construction is complex, with numerous interdependent suppliers to co-ordinate and monitor. We are able to offer you professional Project Management Services and associated advice in the following areas:
BES will determine the best value commercial bid submissions for facade procurement by carrying out a complex technical evaluation to identify any qualifications that are detrimental to the project and any non-compliances of the subcontractors’ designs against the overall project requirements and performance specification.
As specialist facade surveyors we are suitably qualified, experienced and adequately insured to provide the following services:
Our pioneering creativity delivers world-class results.
