We understand that every project and every client is different.
BES guarantees a complete understanding of the project requirements by utilising 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 to life that the client can both appreciate and afford.

Facade Consultancy

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.
SCHEMATIC & CONCEPT DESIGN

After we review and assess the proposed facade 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.

SYSTEM DESIGN

We evaluate the concept designs in terms of performance, budget and construct ability, then develop the best building envelope system to proceed with, including drawings, preliminary calculations and in conjunction with the project team we outline facade performance criteria.

TECHNICAL REVIEW

A full technical facade 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.

BIDDING & VALUE ENGINEERING

We evaluate the bidders qualifications, proposed drawings and project understanding to identify the one most qualified to correctly complete the facade 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.

CONTROL & INSPECTIONS

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.

Design + Engineering

Through exceptional design, engineering and by applying improved practices BES strives to achieve excellence in all our facade projects.
CONCEPT DESIGN

Our expert facade 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 facade project.

SYSTEM DESIGN

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.

SHOP DRAWINGS

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.

STRUCUTURAL ANALYSIS

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

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).

FABRICATION DRAWINGS

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 design solutions in terms of geometry, structural adequacy, performance, energy efficiency, procurement, fabrication, installation, program, and whole life costing.
