We all know the importance of making a good first impression – and it’s true not just for humans: a good-looking building, it’s reckoned, will make the people who live or work in it happier and more productive.
Wicona, which offers bespoke façade solutions, knows this well, and to this end has just launched a range of technically advanced, high-performance aluminium curtain walling, window and door systems. Particularly suited to complex projects, they’re engineered to push the boundaries of aluminium façades while balancing cost efficiency with the latest advances in façade technology.
Developed in Germany and already widely used internationally, Wicona’s systems will give architects and contractors in the UK the opportunity to specify highly engineered but proven solutions to realise the most ambitious building designs.
Both standardised systems and bespoke solutions will be supported by Wicona’s in-house technical team, who work with specifiers and contractors to develop applications from the first sketch to the final handover. The team will also assist with the production of 3D technical drawings, fabrication detailing and cost calculations.
Commenting on this latest development, Ian Smith, senior manager for Wicona, says, “The addition of such a full range of profile systems enables us to offer specifiers in the UK an even wider choice of high-performance façade products, to make more ideas a reality. Wicona is a market-leading brand across Europe and uses advanced German engineering which we can combine with unrivalled technical support and a network of fabricators here in the UK.”
Wicona has more than ten years’ on-site experience in the UK and offers a complete turnkey service for the building envelope, from design concepts to fabrication, installation, testing and handover.
The company and its partners will manage the full façade project, ensuring a seamless approach and complete peace of mind for architects, contractors and developers.
