Koltay Façades provides Façade Engineering and Facade Access Consultancy services. Our team combines façades experts with Architectural, Structural Engineering and contracting background, to allow us to cater for all Client requirements from initial design through to delivery stages of projects and beyond. Façade engineering is a relatively young and dynamically developing engineering discipline, continuously pushed by requirements for buildings to be more energy efficient and sustainable.
We are actively involved in industry development, speaking at key conferences as well as having formal membership in a number of industry leading institutions, we believe in a collaborative approach to façade/envelope development and strive to lead in innovation, keenly taking up the challenges of complex façade structures.
Koltay Façades was established in the UAE in 2011 by Agnes Koltay and currently has the largest specialist ‘façade only’ team in the Middle East. We work on some of the most important iconic landmarks in the region. In 2016, we established the Singapore office, as a response to international demand.
In 2013, Agnes Koltay was selected 91th on Construction Week’s “Power 100” list, and in the same year, Koltay Façades was shortlisted in the “Engineering Consultancy of the Year” category at the Middle East Architects Award. 2018 was definitely an award winning season: firstly Agnes Koltay, the founder of our firm, was awarded The Woman of The Year in Construction Award at the Big Projects 2018 event. Few days later, Koltay Facades was awarded as Specialist Consultancy Company of the Year.
Façade engineering is an interdisciplinary field, combining elements of structural engineering, architecture, building physics, construction management. Our team structure reflects this, bringing expertise to the projects as a result of team interaction. We employ professionals with a degree in structural engineering or architecture, with design or construction experience.
