  • Performance
    Engineering

    The consulting industry strives to provide clients with high performance design, yet the reality is that many buildings never achieve their targeted level of functionality or operability. Once the building is completed, their performance is neither measured, nor optimized to validate their design intent. Necessary systematic processes are not being put in place to empower building owners and operators to effectively monitor or maintain their buildings at a high level. Over time, the ability to adjust a building’s functional program in an efficient manner is diminished.

  • Sustainability
    Consulting

    Sustainability—the nexus of social, environmental, and economic factors— is imperative in order for our communities to thrive in the future. Our crosscutting consulting services include a focus on health and wellness, comfort and district-scale planning to reduce our use of resources like energy, water and materials, thus reducing carbon emissions. We draw from our extensive experience on LEED Platinum, Net Zero and Net Positive Energy projects to help our clients quickly identify cost-effective strategies to achieve restorative and regenerative design. We take a whole-systems approach to buildings and communities, integrating our building simulations, passive design strategies and resource-efficient active mechanical system designs.
