Design Consulting Services
ABI begins each project with an analysis of its unique needs—structural, aesthetic, environmental. From this, we propose site-appropriate solutions for your project.
We can help you select an ABI System and customize it to your needs.
When appropriate, we can also design a new, unique solution for your project. We collaborate with your team to create an integrated envelope design that achieves design excellence in conjunction with high functional performance.
Custom System Design
As an expert on building adaptivity, ABI can custom-design an adaptive system for your building or provide refinement and expert analysis for a system or idea you have under development. Please contact us for more information.
ABI maintains involvement through the fabrication, installation, and commissioning of the adaptive systems we design. We provide oversight, quality assurance, and engineering support to ensure that all performance and quality standards are achieved.
With extensive experience in both product development and the installation of large-scale kinetic structures and systems, we ensure that all of our projects are delivered on time and within budget.
ABI continuously strives to produce solutions that are robust and practical, without aesthetic sacrifice. Our systems are often comprised of modular units that go through rigorous cycle testing, ensuring reliability in advance of installation. Once installed, if individual units need repair, they can be swapped out without impairing overall system performance.
All systems are backed by warranty and maintenance contracts.
