Facade Design and Engineering
Building enclosure is one of the most crucial elements in defining the overall aesthetics and the technical performance of a building. Facade construction cost could vary from 20% up to 30% of the overall construction cost; this cost represents 15-20% of the total life cycle cost over 30 years.
Knowledge-based design decisions taken at early stages can go a long way to reducing and optimizing the money spent in the future towards facades O&M, repairs, and replacements!
Our team has the experience and qualifications that make us one of the rare specialized companies dedicated to this niche sector of the building industry.
ARKS engineers have handled many complex and well-known mega projects in the Middle East, including Canada, UAE, KSA, and Egypt.
Buildings facade access and maintenance has become an essential discipline in the current evolution of facades and buildings envelopes designs.
ARKS provides facade access consulting, including strategies and systems selections that ensure full coverage and safety and integrate buildings’ architecture.
Facade engineering and structural design are collateral and inseparable disciplines. Our engineers have the necessary capabilities to design bespoke systems complementing the architectural vision.
In cooperation with our Canada office, our engineers can design fabric structures up to the shop-drawings stage.
