It is one type of unique glass curtain walls.

When you visit in different cities in China, you maybe see all different shaped buildings in these cities, not only in China, but also in other countries, like Australia, Europe countries, USA…… More and more unique buildings are built to represent each local place’s own culture and traditions. The aluminum profiles are also used in these unique buildings as supporting frames for curtain wall. The weight of aluminum profile is much lighter than steel, its tensile strength is bigger than timber, it is the ideal material to be supporting structure to transfer the façade weight load and wind load to the building main structures.
It is the most important installation accuracy of unique curtain walls must be under control, like hyperboloid curtain wall, multi surface curtain wall. The surveying and setting out must be correct as the relevant drawings. The plane control survey network, the base points supplied by main contractor must be double checked. The total station can help control the accuracy of surveying and setting out, improving the work efficiency.
