Our facade experts input, these issues are addressed before the design development stage. 



  • Review of architectural drawings focusing on the feasibility and constructibility of the facade.

  • Review of wind tunnel test report or wind load analysis as per local wind codes 

  • Review of facade design options 

  • Proposed facade types and different options available

  • Proposed material options 

  • Concept design and provide different options for facade types. 

Design Development 


At this stage AFS will develop façade design details incorporating all design aspects, this includes local code requirements, design basis report (DBR), structural integrity, thermal analysis, air and water infiltration specification, smoke and fire stop, integration of building maintenance restrain, and combination of façade lighting.
