Façade technology

A durable façade

A façade distinguishes a building. Not just because of a characteristic design, but also because of solutions that provide comfort and safety in the building. From the very first lines on paper, the façade is important for the design, also in case of renovation. How do you achieve an innovative, climate-friendly, affordable and durable façade? But you could also feel the need for an independent and expert advice or for quality control for an existing façade.

Call on our façade expertise

DGMR’s consultants have specialist knowledge and follow the latest market developments. Clients regularly call on our expertise in new housing development, but they approach us for problems with existing façades as well. Product suppliers also request our input to their product development, improvement and certification.

Whether the façade needs to be net zero energy, circular, safe or low-maintenance, we aim for realistic solutions in every case.

More information about façade technology

  • Design and engineering

    DGMR examines and assesses the feasibility of a design. We consider how the image of the architect can be realised and which couplings between façade elements are optimal. The same steps go for renovation or transformation of façades, but a building or façade scan usually precedes this. With these scans we check the constructional feasibility of procedures needed for, for example, a more energy-efficient façade. We search for an optimum between old and new, and advise and design one or more solutions.

  • Quality control

    When the façade builder has made his sketches and calculations, we carry out the quality control for you. We guide the tests of prototypes, monitor the production in the factory and the assembly on site. There, we perform the tests again, so that the client is certain of a solid façade. Heightened supervision on the execution of essential aspects (water, wind and airtightness, thermal and acoustic insulation, burglar resistance and fire safety) also belongs to the possibilities.

  • Product development and assessment

    As supplier of façade products, would you like to improve the circularity, the energy neutrality, thermal characteristics, fire or burglar resistance of your product? Or would you like to know what the performance of your product is in an environmental classification system? Our consultants know the market, know the norms and regulations and possess elementary knowledge of your manufacturing method and product to help you along. You can be assured that we handle your request confidentially.
