Kingswood Aluminium sets a high standard in high quality, high performance facade design. With over 40 years of experience in the facade industry, Kingswood Aluminum has a wealth of knowledge and resources to develop class leading curtain wall systems. All of the curtain wall systems used in our designs are exclusive to Kingswood Aluminium. We continually develop new systems to meet the ever changing and challenging specifications and green star requirements. Together with virtual trials and testing, engineering and real world testing, Kingswood Aluminium can develop a facade system to meet any buildings requirements.
As early as the tender stage of a project, the design office is involved to determine the correct suite to use. From manufacture and installation feasibility to the aesthetics of the system to ensure the sales team offers the correct option. The design team works tirelessly developing the perfect suite to meet the project requirements, right through the fabrication process ensuring an economical and reliable build and then a setout design for a smooth installation on site considering all factors such as loading bays and crane locations.
Throughout the construction phase, the design team provides site with cast-in location drawings, proposed setout and design shop drawings.
The design office utilizes a combination of 2D drafting and 3D modelling using industry standard software. Capable of providing 3D models of our designs to integrate into a federated BIM model.
During the design of a custom aluminium suite, extrusions are virtually tested for thermal and stress properties for an economical design.
Combining 3D CAD models and 3D printed models of a proposed suite in early stages of design, Kingswood Aluminium can relay our vision to the client in a fast and accurate manor. Full scale 3D printed parts allows checking of snap in beads and covers and to confirm that mating sections fit as intended.
Kingswood Aluminium has the capability of sharing high work loads with our Thailand based design office. The Thailand office has a carefully selected team of experienced designers with both manufacturing and facade backgrounds. The Adelaide office continually works closely with the team in Thailand, together developing new and improved facade suites drawing on their manufacturing knowledge and experience. Thus, developing an entire process into the facade design. This reduces fabrication error and unforeseen issues sourcing materials.
Kingswood Aluminium recognises the challenges of acoustics, thermal performance and aesthetics all needing to be achieved within a zone as slim as 150mm. We work closely with several certified Australian facade engineering firms to ensure our curtain wall systems meet Australian Standards and perform to the required specifications.
Full Scale Mockup
When appearance is paramount or new and unused materials are to be used, Kingswood Aluminium can provide full scale mockups of the proposed facade system. From aluminium finishes, glass types to customised sunshade systems.
Kingswood Aluminium can build small, detailed mockups to demonstrate the facade make up and materials. This can be from actual selected materials or 3D printed parts.
When developing new facade suites to meet demanding specifications, Kingswood Aluminium will perform full scale testing for wind pressures, water penetration and acoustics.
