As the primary boundary separating interior and exterior spaces, building enclosures play a significant role in a building’s overall efficiency and resiliency.
High-efficiency buildings integrate space, facade, and internal systems to maximize energy savings and help make occupants comfortable, productive, and healthy. Facades designed for providing resiliency protect occupants during and after extreme events. Finally, third-party benchmark certifications rely on high-performing enclosures to achieve specified metrics for energy consumption and human comfort. We'll tackle facade design strategies to address each of these points.
