High-performance building design is an ever evolving process, making the best performing buildings of yesterday the standard of performance today. This means that the high-performance buildings of today must build upon the best buildings of yesterday, and add the high-performance design features of tomorrow. High-performance design involves many aspects of a building, including architecture, envelope […]
DesignNot all design processes are equal, even if they are trying to reach the same project objectives. When you are aiming for high-performance, integrated efficiency, and true green credentials, alternative design methods are required, with expert teams using advanced simulation and design tools. Our streamlined design solutions offer you a set of specialized services to help you optimize your design in an integrated approach, bringing it closer to a smooth implementation.
With many software tools available to simulate the energy performance of a building, energy modeling should not be limited to projects seeking green certifications. Energy modeling offers you a way to assess different design concepts and systems for your project, without having to build it, try it, and wait for your next project to improve […]
When dealing with medium to large scale projects, sometimes as large as an entire city, central utility plants (CUP) are the vital heart for the operation of all the facilities. Supplying the buildings with electricity, water, heating, and cooling, they are the largest energy consumer, but have the potential for the most energy savings if […]
In a time where Building Information Modeling (BIM) and 3D drawing design has become the standard for leading design firms, demanding clients, and large projects; some designs are still being done the old fashion way. It’s like sending a letter through the post office when you can video conference, missing out on speed, unlimited interaction, […]
A second and fresh pair of eyes to look over the design and specifications will always add value to a project, and ensure that the owner project requirements are addressed. Whether to verify compliance with the standards and codes or to ensure a trouble free implementation and operation, the design and specifications review can be […]
