OLYMPIQUE Facade Access Consulting is the global leader in facade access design and consulting services for developers, architects, general contractors and building owners. With over 27 years of experience in Exterior Building Maintenance (EBM), we strive to develop common sense and technically appropriate solutions for the facade access and EBM challenges that result from the complex and unique architecture of buildings today. In additional to our highly technical experience and ability, you will benefit from our deep knowledge with the following codes and standards: Fed OSHA, Cal OSHA, Washington OSHA, New York DOL, CAN/CSA, EN1808 ASME A120, ANSI Z359.
Traditionally, project teams have allowed EBM equipment and systems to be designed and developed during construction after architectural and structural design is complete . This design/build approach is flawed since all of the regulatory authorities requires that portions of the building architecture be designed to support the EBM equipment and system. The end result is a flawed installation, incomplete systems, code compliance issues and high cost to build. If designed in a performance-based model during architectural design, the project will benefit from the early interdisciplinary coordination that will allow a streamlined approach and cost savings.
The following professional design and consulting services are tailored to your project. Just ask us how we can help and contact us now.
