Modern products under implementation of the latest Minergie requirements and with an individual style determine the exceptional approach of the company. Away from standardized products, the experts from the roof window element construction division always seek and find perfect solutions, even for difficult projects.
A high degree of prefabrication makes assembly fast
The specialists for roof window element construction see a significant advantage in a high degree of prefabrication of the individual elements. The more complex the projects are, the more it depends on perfect pre-planning and implementation. Especially when time constraints are very tight or other circumstances preclude lengthy on-site assembly work. It is precisely in such cases that perfection is required, and the specialists in Lungern live up to this practically every day. The window manufacturers specializing in roof windows do not necessarily only install them on the roof. Special solutions for cellar entrances or the installation of special window elements and glazing for basements are also examples of the flexibility and professionalism in window construction.
Special solution for special project
In the project presented here, the task was to replace the glazing on two roof windows almost at ground level. The difficulty here was not so much the shape and design of the roof windows, but rather the fact that during installation the access to the adjacent underground garage is blocked. It was therefore necessary to work in such a way that there would be as few restrictions as possible on the use of the underground car park.
And also in terms of the quality of the windows, it was a matter of a significant gain in modernity. The old glazing no longer met contemporary energy efficiency requirements at all. And the connections to the building were also no longer tight. Three challenges had to be mastered at once: New, modern glazing in individual production, sealing of the connections, and installation in small time windows.
Challenges mastered, promises kept
After thorough preliminary planning of the project, prefabrication of the glazing, including all connecting profiles, was carried out at the factory in Lungern with millimeter precision. This was implemented using HPG oecoline vario® flat roof elements with side ventilation flaps. It was clear that this was a case of perfect work, as this was the only way to achieve rapid installation without a lot of reworking on the construction site.
Then practically everything went “just in time.” The glazing was delivered, unloaded and installed without delay. And this was done in sequences that did not interfere, or only minimally interfered, with access to the underground parking garage. Within just one day, everything was in place. New glazing, tight windows and hardly any restrictions on the use of the underground garage. Finally, a service was delivered that met the high quality standards of the customer in every respect, but also the performance promise of HP Gasser AG in every respect.
