Project details :

A former six storey office, the DAA Hob project refurbished the complete internal and external look of the building extending to approximately 8500 m². This was the first phase of a planned 70-acre business park aimed at international high-tech companies involved in research and development and other service industries.

This refurbishment included a new triple-glazed façade with the WICTEC SG Curtain Wall, and the WICSTYLE 65 evo Doors. Many ideas and products came together in this project resulting in LEED Platinum Accreditation being achieved.

Facade systems


Filigree look without any change in appearance to the inner mullion and transom gaskets Ideal for vertical and polygon façades, sloped glazing and spatial structures Individual design thanks to a wide range of profile geometries for the structural and glazing profiles Uf up to 1.2W/m²K, solutionfor passiv houses up to Uf =0.74W/m²K Reliable glass load transmission (up to 4 kN), with adapted transom-joint technology Overlapping and secure drainage at the cross point, without mechanical mullion processing, ensures tried-and-tested impermeability Broad selection of profiles enables economic adaptation to structural requirements, with the additional option of internal reinforcement Glazing from outside featuring single- and/or two-part pressure and cover profiles Design options with concealed or visible screw fixture Extensive solutions for structure junctions and conservatories Burglar resistance up to WK3 with presure profile reinforcement bullet resistance class up to FB4 fire resistance class G30/F30, glass or panel up to 1.8x3.0m or 1.4x2.4m, overhead glazing possible, construction principle identical regular WICTEC 50 Complete product range for glazed roofs or slope facades Easy integration in roof windows, realizeable as SHEV variant as all glass facade, appearance similar to structural sealant glazing (SSG) facade Special pressure profile available with concealed guide for integrated sun protection
