UPB frame and facade solutions offer is a complex solution that combines the design and installation of glass, steel and concrete structures. The combined solution enables a more efficient construction of the object and reduces the overall time and cost of the project. UPB has implemented more than 40 such projects up to now.
UPB calls this 3C (3 construction) solution. Under these projects, the customer is provided with full external shell of the building under a single contract and single responsibility.
Benefits of combined frame and facade solutions to the customer:
- More precise technical solutions from the project proposal stage.
Thanks to prefabricated concrete, steel and glass engineers working together from the early stages, an ideal combination of frame and facade is made possible. UPB will provide a much more accurate quotation and suitable frame and facade solutions as a BIM model.
- Streamlined project coordination ensures lower consumption or resources and cost.
The customer has one project manager as a single point of contact. Single contract, joint documentation and joint responsibility for the frame and facade. Efficient communication facilitates the resolution of any issues.
- More accurate job planning.
Work-time planning can be more efficient in 3C projects because the work is coordinated between the frame and facade assembly teams early on. Both teams can work in parallel, thereby reducing the construction time. At UPB, both teams work together and prepare the site for the other team. This synergy enables quicker transfer of work between frame and facade assembly and further reduces the assembly time.
- More efficient use of the building machinery on site.
The frame and facade assembly teams work harmoniously, using the same equipment and tools, thus reducing the equipment rental costs.
- Higher work safety.
Each site has a dedicated person in charge of health and safety and the entire UPB team is informed about the ongoing work, area restrictions and other matters.
Prefabricated concrete structures are produced in two advanced factories in Liepāja and Daugavpils. Steel structures are produced at the Grobiņa plant, while the glass structures are made at four plants in Liepāja. UPB has more than 130 professional construction and building engineers with extensive design experience in the Nordic countries, Germany and Eastern Europe.
