Planning and Quality Assurance with Mock-Ups and Prototypes

On the basis of the IFE data, the Facade-Lab produces functional prototypes and mock-ups during the planning phase. Architects and investors can "tangibly" experience their facade concept on-site and at a scale of 1:1, enabling them to examine the planning results at an early stage. In contrast to the normal case, where a Mock-Up is at best developed following award of contract to the facade fabricator, in Facade-Lab the planning can be considerably optimised without any biased interest. The tender to contract can be worded more precisely and with the unambiguous "model" no longer contains any room for interpretation. The Mock-Up thus ensures greater planning and quality assurance and can also be used for early marketing of the building, for example by being presented on the future building site to potential buyers or investors. The practical creation of the Mock-Up is carried out by the CNC multi-axis production machine in the Facade-Lab, which is directly controlled from the IFE model and can therefore image the progress of planning in real time. On the other hand, specific units of functional sets, for example in the fields of photovoltaics, solar-thermal energy, solar cooling, vacuum glass, or "phase changing material"are built to implement new developments, illustrate solutions, review benefits and efficiency, and control costs.
