Building design is a key focus for ensuring that the occupants won’t have to cope with a lack of comfort by helping to provide low carbon emissions, low energy use and great operational performance. This refers to the non-structural performance of the building looking into how it copes with retaining heat, air circulation and moisture transfer.
A lot of people don’t realise that building physicists are involved in building design and that they play an important role in creating a sustainable building. This process makes sure that we cover all the elements that go into making sure a building is sustainable, from looking into air-tight designs which contribute to energy efficiency, to insulation materials and thermal performance.
We look at all the necessary requirements to make a project the best it can be, it can also help to significantly reduce costs and risks to a build.
We can provide qualitative advice to inform initial concepts and provide quantitative rigour as the design develops to help influence design using 3D computational modelling techniques.
