Consulting

Reducing the energy requirements of buildings reduces the demand for new energy production, and the cost of energy conservation is far less than the cost of new generating capacity. Our design assistance to architects and engineers covers the gamut of load reduction strategies from daylighting to night ventilation of mass and also includes climate and microclimate analysis, thermal and visual comfort, mechanical and lighting systems selection and integration, controls and operation sequences, and broad sustainability issues. We frequently deliver our services as part of an integrated design process we have developed and promote. We also develop unique and innovative design tools when we see a need for them.
