Services

Performance Throughout the Building Lifecycle

Building science deals with the performance analysis of the building envelope, the physics of the utilized materials, and the integration with building systems under various indoor and outdoor conditions. With codes requiring higher performance and new materials and systems emerging in the market our buildings face challenges to perform under the changing conditions that occur throughout a building's lifecycle.

We offer services including building science investigations, envelope and system design review, building simulation and performance analysis, performance monitoring and assessment, assistance in design and analysis of building related materials and products.
