Facades in building construction allow the architect to give a building a distinctive appearance. In particular glass and stone are frequently used as materials. However, as a whole, facades are highly complex elements and aspects from architecture, building physics, statics, sun protection and waterproofing are interwoven.

Damage in facades is predominantly only locally renovated without a comprehensive survey. The responsibility of the building owner is often underestimated in this connection.

After the occurrence of damage a facade should be immediately totally examined for any “still hidden” deficiencies. In case of bigger objects, in particular high-rise buildings, we recommend a detailed survey of the facade at least every 10 years.

FCP has excellent experience of more than two decades in this field. Our experts offer comprehensive solutions from damage analysis and approach for refurbishment up to detailed design and tender as well as site supervision, if required also in cooperation with external specialists.
