Glass Engineering is an absolutely new business area, so far not known on the Belarusian market
In 2014 ITC Engineering JLLC and Technologica SP LLC joined their efforts in the field of design and integrated support of projects dealing with translucent façade structured and established a joint subsidiary enterprise ITL Engineering LLC. The stakeholders’ professional dyad allows to provide engineering services in the sphere of erection of unique buildings and structures with a high degree of glazing and application of most complex structural design solutions.
Development of the engineering concept of the façade
- Selection of the type and basic characteristics of the façade system with reference to specific local site conditions and project budget (based on the example of one of the existing façade systems with its “design-tied” modification);
- Development of the basic units and structural solutions of the façade concept (façade section prototypes and mounting brackets);
- Preliminary structural strength analysis of basic elements of the façade, such as profiled sections and glazing units (in coordination with respective specialized design organizations).
Elaboration of engineering solutions and other documents for material supplier tendering processes
- Development of tender package drawings, including 3D full-scale model of the standard façade surface and detailed 3D models of the key unit fragments, façade appearance drawings, typical floor facades;
- Strength analyses, thermotechnical and acoustic design calculations for basic façade elements: profiled sections, glazing units and mounting brackets attaching façade elements to supporting structures (in coordination with respective specialized design organizations);
- Development of general technical specifications for the façade, of the quantitative specification of façade structures, drafting a consolidated list of façade system materials, as well as other tender package documents required for selection of the façade contractor;
- Materials, manufacturing and façade installation cost estimation.
- Development of KM section (metal structures) shop drawings package;
- Budgeting and financial project management pertaining to construction of facades and interior translucent structures;
- Elaboration and introduction of the façade and interior translucent structures installation work schedule;
- Development of the façade and interior glazing structures supply logistics plan;
- Drafting reporting documents for the projects related to construction of facades and interior translucent structures;
- Integrated engineering support of construction and installation works related to building façade and other glass structures, including performance of other functions as required by the Client;
- Project risks management;
- Development of the building facades maintenance concept (BFMC) and of the architectural building façade lighting.
