ANTAMEX Façade Retrofits, strives to bring together the creativity and expertise necessary to facilitate the design and execution of an ever growing slate of complex retrofit projects in key markets throughout North America. 


AFR concentrates solely on removal & replacement of existing glazing, over cladding, reskinning, and total system swap outs for high rise and low rise commercial, institutional, industrial and residential buildings as well as an added layer of focus on specialty heritage scope.  ANTAMEX has identified a demand in the market to have a specific division that will have a dedicated and focused team. The need to bring older and aging buildings up to modern performance standards, while also addressing architectural improvement options, has created a different set of construction problems and requires a different methodology to execute and deliver effectively.



Some of the key challenges facing any retrofit can be:

  • Heritage building restrictions

  • Maintaining occupancy

  • Access

  • Phasing of construction

  • Public protection

  • Coordination with other trades

  • Older or non existing original drawings

  • Inaccurate drawings

  • Budget development

  • Design development

AFR’s team will endeavor to resolve these challenges by offering the following services:
