This has resulted high quality works which has been demonstrated with stringent site tests.

  • Structural design wind loads for glass facades are derived from wind tunnel reports
  • Estimation of facade wind pressures accurately as per local weather
  • Detailed engineering design to arrive economical design yet robust design
  • Advance engineering to meet highly challenging design requirements such as high wind pressures and weather proof conditions
  • Bespoke Lobby facade for triple height (12 M High) using vertical member only Without Horizontal
