Abstract

Permasteelisa Group is a manufacturer of curtain walls specialized worldwide in the creation of personalized architectural envelopes. The Group’s mission is to use innovative design methods and advanced technologies to construct architecturally significant façades. In order to meet project budget and timing requirements 3D modelling, personalized applications and automated production processes have been implemented company-wide. Together with the new technologies, the new design methods developed within the company, such as cold-formed units of curtain walls and toleran- ce compensation units, have given designers the ability to break classic design rules.
