The facade shows the visual, characteristic appearance of a building. The materiality and functionality of the facade constantly pose new challenges for design and implementation. Therefore, individual solutions have to be found carefully. Thus, facades made of highly efficient glass emphasize the transparent and light design and at the same time enable the reduction of operating and energy costs.

Rümmele Bauingenieur GmbH plans and realizes facades worldwide, always taking into account country-specific regulations and paying attention to economic feasibility, quality, care and overall conception.

We provide fully comprehensive facade planning for any type of building envelope and special construction in all service phases. Prerequisite for project success is the cooperation of architect and planning expert. Our work focuses on double facades, cable facades, ventilated facades and complex geometries.



Technical guidance during initial system development concerning the overall contribution of the façade system to the building envelope by taking into account all aspects of design and construction pertinent to facades along with accurate cost estimations.


  • Structural, state-of-the-art structural design and cross-sectional optimization, performed side-by-side with our client’s designers to ensure solid performance and easy to apply solutions on time and within budget
  • Thermal, quantitative approach to identify the thermal performance, target critical areas of thermal bridges, assess condensation risk and mold development
  • Acoustical, analytical and empirical approaches to ensure that noise levels remain within acceptable range


  • Project Specification, development of high quality and up to date façade specs to meet the most demanding requirements
  • Performance Assessment, inspection and evaluation of subcontractors’ performance to meet required quality levels
  • Critical Points Identification, exploring imminent or potential flaws by assessing calculations and drawings
  • Tendering Phase Appraisal, checking relevant offers to identify the most efficient match in terms of high-quality, low-cost and low-risk
