Façade Refurbishment of an existing building can be extremely challenging. Today, more than ever, Designers and Contractors are faced many challenges. Balancing onerous interrelated design and construction issues against managing the different types of construction risk must often be done in a tight time frame and budget.
Approaching Façade refurbishment correctly is critical to meeting the demands of a changing commercial and global market, where time is of the essence.
Existing buildings have a unique advantage over new build. The envelope and structure already exist. Very often, however, they need to be modernised sensitively to compete with the more environmental friendly and recently constructed buildings.
