Syntegrate Facade Design is a division of Syntegrate that specializes in the design and engineering of facade systems. We leverage the power of advanced 3D modeling from our BIM (Building Information Modeling) division and our in-depth knowledge of fabrication processes and material properties to produce optimized solutions for complex building envelopes.
THE CHALLENGE WE FACE
Worldwide construction is a US$ 7 Trillion industry and buildings consume 40% of the world’s energy; however, 20% of construction ends up as waste. If we put these numbers in the context of national GDP, worldwide construction is the size of China and each year the entire output of Spain is wasted.
Something must be done and Syntegrate is a part of that solution.
Natural resources are limited while urban populations are growing at their fastest rates ever. Therefore, for the foreseeable future, the application of technology in architectural design and construction is the only means of addressing the increasing pressures on the realization of our built environment. Just as there are no panaceas for these challenges, there is no single tool or software that can be utilized to produce the optimum solution for a given project, which is why Syntegrate is adept at using a wide array of software tools and technology platforms depending on the nature of the problem at hand and the risks involved.
UNIQUE APPROACH & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Since Syntegrate is not tied to any one software platform, our clients will never receive a cookie-cutter solution. Every challenge represents a new opportunity for Syntegrate to undertake a thorough inquiry into the issues and tailor a customized approach to generate the maximum return for our client.
We are not just a company but a company of individuals. We firmly believe in the value that our services provide and, while the corporation exists to make a profit, we, its members, work to make a difference. Therefore, Syntegrate pledges its time, energy and a portion of its profits every year to a charitable organization.
The building industry faces a complex set of challenges requiring a multi-disciplinary approach which is why Syntegrate is composed of individuals trained in architecture, engineering, construction management, computer programming, sustainability in design and construction, and economics and bring with them experience gained from design offices, engineering firms, construction sites, software development, manufacturing, banking and finance, and academia. Furthermore, each founding member has worked with some of the most prominent practitioners and researchers in the field of Building Information Modelling and have applied their expertise to a wide range of building projects prior to forming Syntegrate.
