Specialty Structures/Structural Glazing Division

This year our Cold Form department added another skill set to its already vast list of services. With the hire of Bill Jansen, Excel formed a specialty structures/structural glazing division. Bill Jansen is leading the group as the Sr. Engineer with over 20 years of experience.

This division provides engineering and drafting for many different types of projects. We can cater to everything from PSG (point-supported glass) canopies or walls to AESS (architecturally exposed structural steel) steel structures, to curtainwall, to tensile structures (like tensile trusses, or cable walls), to structural glass (like glass floors, glass bridges, glass stair systems), to metal panel systems, to free form structures, to whatever else our client asks us to tackle. We are equipped to execute a wide range of projects - from the engineering of small canopies to creating workable designs from the most challenging of architectural dreams.

We offer services for all phases of projects. Our services include:

  • schematic design
  • design development
  • structural analysis
  • engineering calculations
  • structural glass engineering
  • submittal shop drawings
  • fabrication drawings
  • 3D modeling
  • thermal simulations (U factor and condensation analysis) in accordance with NFRC Standards
  • construction/installation guidance (examples: installation sequence, tensioning equipment & instruction, lift points, stability of partially erected structures, etc.)
