Façade Engineering



The façade of a building determines its aesthetic appeal. Being directly exposed to varying weather conditions and pollutants in the air means it is at the highest risk of deterioration. Beyond our structural design service for new façades, GMB Structural are well versed in preparing due diligence audit reports, routine inspections and management systems for existing residential, commercial and industrial façades. We are highly experienced with glazing systems, sealants, cladding materials, general façade construction, and remedial methods.

Over many years we have become experts in the design of most forms of façade treatments including:

  • Stone and terracotta
  • Metal clad and rain-screen systems
  • Curtain wall and window design and certification
  • Precast concrete and GRC
  • Structural glass and fibre composites
  • Glass awnings and skylights
  • Aluminium composite panels

GMB Structural provide an expert opinion that’s supported by investigation, testing, defect reporting and project management services for rectification and repair of building façades. We also advise on contemporary structural glass uses such as floors, stairs, balustrades and shop fronts.
