Structural Calculations

Facade structural calculation is the rigorous examination of a building’s facade to assess its structural integrity. This process is vital to ensure the facade’s ability to withstand diverse loads and forces, including wind, snow, seismic activity, while adhering to applicable building codes and standards.

This calculation process may also encompass testing and simulation to evaluate the facade’s performance under various conditions. Such assessments could involve wind tunnel testing, thermal performance analysis, and other physical tests. Facade structural calculation services are indispensable components of modern building design and construction, guaranteeing the facade’s strength, durability, safety, and compliance with essential building codes and standards.

Acoustic Calculations

The acoustic performance of your exterior facade plays a pivotal role in determining the level of noise exposure that residents experience from transportation sources. Optimal acoustic performance can significantly impact construction in terms of cost, dimensions, and project timelines. However, when uncertainties arise in acoustic performance, it often necessitates a more conservative design approach, incorporating safety factors to ensure compliance with noise requirements. This careful approach, while crucial for acoustic control, can lead to increased complexity and costs for your project.
