Among the many innovative façades, we have built, one of the most innovative façades with SAGE USA glass is currently under construction in Bangalore, India. Bagmane Developers and Glass Wall Systems are delivering their vision for smart façades in India.
The world’s largest smart/ electrochromic glass project, Rio-Business Park is a 1.6 million square feet commercial building in Bengaluru. Glass Wall Systems was chosen as the building’s façade fabricator. “I am always striving to set up a trend in the futuristic technology within the building façade industry. Regarding the creative possibilities of the façade at Rio Business Park, this project uses intelligent glass, which automatically tints throughout the day and reduces glare while regulating temperature.
This technology gives the building a luxurious feel and offers energy savings. Our strong R&D and teams have developed a strong united curtain wall system with an easily integrated IGU cable and connections along with the mullions. In doing so, it is effortless to integrate the smart glass aluminium-framed panels, resulting in a hassle-free façade installation process. With our combined resources and creativity, we believe we would be able to provide our valued clients with scalable performance,” states Rounaq Choudhari, Director at Glass Wall Systems.
So in my opinion, he adds – “innovation and sustainability are perhaps the most preferred word in the world of architecture lately. In light of climate change and the growing population, a larger group of consumers have limited resources, resulting in developers and architects looking for innovative façade developers. And talking about innovation, if I have to note down a few points for façade innovation, I would say the façade needs to be not only visually appealing on the exteriors of a building but also driven with high-end technology and performance when it comes to the functionality”.
Taking the example of Rio Business Park, the façade is not just visibly entreating but also caters to high-end performance and functionality with the innovation of dynamic glass and smart technologies. All in all, the innovation of smart façades is a trend in this industry as we lead travel towards the future.
