Curtain walling is where the window system is positioned to the exterior of the building structure, which allows the combined window and spandrel framing to span multiple levels, ultimately forming a continuous facade. A curtain wall can comprise a combination of different glass types, aluminium panel and/or other specified exterior cladding material, granting architects significant design flexibility. G.James specialises in the manufacture and installation of both standardised and bespoke curtain wall systems with a commitment to addressing the specific performance, operational and aesthetic requirements of the project.
Design & Engineering
Since the early 1980’s, G.James has developed and demonstrated a capability to convert an original design concept into reality. Our team of in-house engineers ensure compliance with all relevant building codes and standards. With all operations Australian-based, G.James Facades Solutions can provide all the resources and experience necessary for the successful completion of your next curtain wall project.
G.James can design, fabricate and install a fully customised solution to suit individual project specifications. Utilising our vast extrusion, fabrication and glass & glazing capabilities, G.James can tailor a bespoke solution to address the ever challenging design aspirations of today’s architects.
G.James conducts prototype testing at our NATA approved, test facilities located in Brisbane. These facilities allow all interested parties the opportunity to view and inspect an actual mock-up of the façade to confirm the aesthetic and design compliance. Under test conditions, the mock-up unit is subjected to simulated wind and water conditions to satisfy the nominated performance requirements.
Competent and strategic project management is the key to the timely completion of any construction project. An assigned Project Manager will follow a well-structured plan while diligently monitoring fabrication, installation, quality and documentation to ensure our best endeavours in the adherence of your project’s construction program.
G.James directly employs experienced curtain wall technicians to guarantee the most ‘capable’ resources and specialist knowledge is available for your project. Supplementary labour is sourced through third-party installation companies chosen from our approved subcontractor list. G.James also has access to a range of specialised handling equipment essential to the safe and efficient use of on-site personnel.
