    Default Window corner with slide part, concrete detail!

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello all, i am a student and new to this forum and I haven't stop reading it since. So I will stick around!
    Anyway I found you guys by looking for a corner window plan, where the it also has a slide part but not at the corner. I am using thick concrete as my main material and I want to have glass corners since this is part of the building is a truck entrance so visibility is required. So, if anyone has one, please share it with me?
    Also, I would also like to ask if you have concrete detail (section) where the material is shown in both sides as it is (no plaster if possible) so you can see the material raw as it is but also the insulation etc. Location of my project is at south spain, which is a very warm, desert-ish environment.
    Either than that, forum looks great and I have already acquired some knowledge, since my CAD skills are basic!

    Maybe this should be moved to the students part of the forums. I just noticed that there is a subforum there.

    Welcome to the CADTutor forum.

    Is the base construction of your building poured concrete or is it concrete block?

    The glass corner you refer to, is it at a 45 deg angle?

    The CADTutor website does not have a library of details. Members who may have such details can choose to share them with others however by posting them either as an image or a DWG file.

    I assume you are drawing using metric units is that correct?

    Thank you! It is poured concrete 300mm thick. The whole building is structure of its own, hence the thick walls and my struggle to understand how i can make it strong, insulated and keep the concrete immateriality on both sides (in and out).
    Of course if block can work, it is also good.
    The window is a 45 degree corner!
    Also, thank you for the link, I have checked it but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking, but I will give it an other look out!
    Thank ytou for your quick reply!

    Your wall is almost a foot thick. There are concrete blocks that have an insulated interior. Are you familiar with them?

    So you have a 45 degree corner with a window opening in it. I suspect you'll be putting some kind of double-pane window in it that is constructed of an extruded aluminum frame right?

    No, I am not. I will browse on the net, however bare in mind that this building rises at 15 meters, so I don't know if they can support all this floors as my intention is that the walls are also the supporting structure as I am not familiar with this technique.
    About the window, there will be aluminium frame, but I was hoping to not have any frames on the corner.

    Concrete block walls have been used for decades and 15 meters really doesn't seem that high. If constructed correctly that height should be no problem. You'll need some rebar (vertically), welded-wire mesh every few courses and the voids will have to be backfilled with mortar.

    Well your image does have a frame around the perimeter. What it doesn't have is a framing member at the 90 deg corner. That's an expensive window.

    yes but I am a student so it doesn't really matter at this point, but thank you for the input, I will definetly use this on the future. However it is important for me to keep it like this, as I want total visibility.
    I am very interested on the blocs as they would add to my facades. And can the material is visible from interior and exterior? Also, would u happen to have this detail, as I am not quite familiar with the terminology? Even a photo would be good!

    Look for a product called Insulated Concrete Block. It will look like concrete block from the outside as well as the inside. If this is to be a commercial building then the look will be fine. If you want to upgrade the look a little then you could always do a sand-finish stucco treatment on one or both sides.
