From your DREAM to a full IDEA.

All project stems from a preliminary “idea” and the constraints attached to it, that will determine its final outcome: the use you want to give; the available land-space; geographical location; if prioritize vertical or horizontal construction; if you opt for a very bright and airy space or if instead it is a priority the generation or save of energy …

In Renkho, we are aware of the importance of the “idea” and the need to respond and give solution to all these constraints, to solve each project maintaining the preliminary idea as much as possible.

Renkho has a technical team of extensive experience, able to assimilate the basic concepts of the preliminary “idea”, with the capacity to adapt them to the associated constraints. In this way we develop studies of the area in which the project will sit, determining structural loads due to wind, seismic loads caused by near faults, solar influence regarding the lighting and the air conditioning of the building, native climatic agents from the area that are of relevance for the design of the envelope (extreme rainfall, sand storms, high gradients of temperature). We study the whole building differentiating itself based on the orientation of its facades and climatic properties involving each of these orientations.

Our extensive knowledge of the world of building envelopes, allow us to provide to the “idea” an assessment of the optimal facade solution for each architectural design, use and situation,adding to this, an interesting advice on the many materials available on the market (aluminum alloys, steel, glass, composites, ceramic, phenolic, wood, stone, photovoltaic) and capable of being integrated in a facade.

When you have an “idea”, it is intended that this persists over time, for this reason, the knowledge of the durability and life expectancy of the materials used in a facade it is essential, considering which should be their proper maintenance and what should be the products to do it in the right way.

Loads analysis

The study and analysis of dynamic loads that affect the design of the facade is given by:

  • The geographical location of the building, its location relative to the surrounding environment, the performance of internal and external stakeholders from the area and weather conditions.
  • The morphology of the building defining its geometry, the height, the orientation of the facades and the positioning of the envelope in the elevation itself..

Calculation of Solutions

Based on current Standards and the study of static and dynamic loads affecting the elements of the solution, we obtain the diagram of stresses and maximum strains. The result is the correct dimensioning of each component of the envelope.

For projects where it is necessary or required, Renkho has agreements with various laboratories to develop wind tunnel studies wind tunnel studies. This test will allow recreate loads that will affect our facade due to the movements of the wind against the envelope, simulating the behavior of it in a real situation.

Algunas Normativas Vigentes

3d Design

Nothing better to imagine an idea to see the final result of it.

Renkho uses graphic design and 3D simulation software that faithfully recreate the idea put forward and allow us to move through it, showing the result from both the outside and inside of the building, such as the elements that compose it.

Design of specific systems

Not everything you can imagine exists on the market, but that does not mean that cannot be done.

The professionals of Renkho have extensive expertise in designing light façade systems and developing specific systems for each building or to assist in its development with the help of different system suppliers in the market.

Fire protection

Today ́s trend in the construction is the use of increasingly lighter elements. On the other hand, there is an increase in the use of fuels.

It is essential when designing a facade to eliminate, lessen the risk or presence of a fire.

After the study of the building and its use, the fire sectors will be defined by horizontal partitioning, vertical or both depending on the geometry of the construction.

In this case the source of fire will be isolated for a period long enough to allow its suppression and the people evacuation.

The fire protection systems will be defined, either passive and evacuation or active through detection systems, warning and suppression.


Energy Study

The amount of energy that is channeled through the building envelope is high, hence increasingly working on ways to benefit from it without compromising the aesthetics of the facade.

Depending on the needs of the construction will be raised: energy saving systems for the building through a double skin design, ventilated facades, active and vegetables, or power generation systems such as photovoltaic, thermal and wind.

Construction details

Design of type and specific construction details necessary for the development, understanding and subsequent evaluation of the projected idea.

Development of elevations, plants, vertical and horizontal sections, specific details, legends of materials, etc…
