Founded in 1978, Universe is a full-service fabricator, engineering and façade technology company with local branches on the West Coast, East Coast and Midwest.
From bid to installation, we engineer, anticipate and support you to secure a successful facade installation. Here’s how we work with our partners from first quote to after sale support:
From early bid to installation a highly trained local facade specialist will support you through every step of the process.
Full list of materials that leaves nothing out, diagram of the system with details and any issues we see with the plans or specifications. The quote contains complete part-marked, hot-linked and highlighted set of drawings.
Our optional Laser Scan technology, custom integrated with our design and fabrication software makes millions of ultra-precise measurements of the building, so that we can fabricate a solution that always fits precisely on the wall.
Universe NFPA-285-approved systems are easy to use and save labour time. The 9000/9050 system is our most popular semi-unitized system with prefixed hidden fasteners. It can save up to 50% labour time in high-wage urban areas.
We have inventory and ample fabrication capacity in our local facilities in St Louis and Las Vegas. Our experienced logistics team communicates openly with partners to get the materials safely and timely on the spot even in the most demanding urban locations.
Materials are packed in heavy-duty protective crating and organized in Universe Logical Packing Groups. Each facade element is logically grouped, documented and numbered in the drawings, making it easy to quickly retrieve the right piece at the right time.
Our installation support team will train new installation teams and gets them started on new construction sites if needed.
Universe has long-term partnerships with the most reliable facade material suppliers: Trespa, Equitone and Alpolic. We pride ourselves on backing our partners with the after sales support they deserve.
Our digital marketing and specifications team create an uninterrupted flow of highly qualified facade projects. We gladly share our specs and projects with prime partners, so that we can grow together.
