Aluminum composite material offers the architectural design world a blank canvas to create with almost limitless possibilities. This freedom allows for incredibly imaginative works of architectural art in the finished state, but can also create problems in the fabrication and installation of the structure. Whether a design is simple or intricate, the very nature of ACM and other exterior wall panels calls for precise and exact application of the material. Engineered Wall Systems has eliminated 98% of the human error involved in site measurement and fabrication by instituting high definition scanning as part of the engineering process.
As one of only a few fabricators in the country using this equipment and process in exterior wall panel systems, EWS offers as seamless a system as is possible. Using equipment and software by FARO, our field team captures point clouds from millions of beams of laser data that makes up a 3D model of a structure. The model is then imported into our engineering software where we draw the panels. There is every advantage to using this process, including the following:
