At Priedemann any project starts with the determination of the planning basis, with the facts, requirements and possibilities – no matter when we start and always together with everyone involved in the project
Priedemann develops the facade concept for planning ready for approval – taking into account all planning principles and requirements determined up to that point, e.g. the climate plan, building technology and building statics.
Priedemann sees the implementation planning as a precise simulation of the construction process and the building – in detail, digitally and, depending on the complexity, as a 3-dimensional model.
For tendering and awarding contracts Priedemann defines and specifies the planned facades and details as well as the connections to adjacent components.
Priedemann provides clients with comprehensive advice independent of individual manufacturers and systems when selecting the best award procedure and the most suitable manufacturer.
We know the market: Our experience from hundreds of projects with various manufacturers is incorporated into our consulting services.
The first phase after the award of the contract is of particular importance. Often some time has passed since planning and a number of changes may have occurred, the planning team has changed, user requests have been added or additional requirements are putting pressure on the budget. Priedemann checks and assesses whether all of the documents are up to date, complete, feasible and if any improvements can be made, coordinates change management and is the contact for all questions of the planning team concerning the facade.
Before the work is planned
While the work is being planned
Scale does not just changes the perspective and the proportions, only in the 1:1 model can the loads a component is exposed to be tested realistically.
Usually, mock-ups are only created after being awarded to the manufacturer of a facade. We support the planning and implementation already during the planning phase in order to ensure greater reliability of planning, design and implementation at an earlier point in time.
The supervision of assembly and installation is particularly important for us, to ensure the agreed quality. Our principle is that deviations from the agreed planning must be identified at an early stage, documented and the implementation corrected. This controlling refers both to production and manufacturing as well as to the assembly on the building site:
Regular inspection of production and assembly in the factory
Regular inspection at the building site
The aim of Priedemann’s thermal-structural planning is to minimise heat losses and undesirable heat input through the exterior of the building and to avoid damage caused by weather conditions. The range of services includes identifying all influences and values relevant for the facade structure as well as the exact dimensioning and determination of the materials for the layer structure of the facade.
Priedemann produces energy saving certificates based on the existing building data, which represent the most important energy consumption data and characteristic values in accordance with local legal requirements. For Germany we are also authorized to assess such evidence.
For completed projects or ongoing projects – depending on local regulations and the determination of specific building data – we can issue energy efficiency certificates that illustrate the energy consumption of the building as a whole, i.e. in the interaction of building services, facade and use.
