We are internationally recognized as a leader in the building envelope field. Our strength and professionalism in Building envelope resides with our team of engineers, architects, technologists, consultants and construction trade specialists, who have a direct knowledge of the issues involved with providing a functional and durable building envelope.

Building envelope engineering focuses on solving or preventing performance problems associated with the enclosures of buildings. The building envelope includes exterior glazing, opaque wall assemblies, roofs and balconies, and at-grade and below-grade waterproofing. We collaborate with owners and designers of new construction projects to create high performance building envelope systems. We have also been involved in thousands of investigations of buildings with envelope performance problems, often leading to remedial design and in many cases to the management of exterior wall, window, and/or roof replacement or rehabilitation programs.

Our services include:

  • Building envelope condition assessments
  • Investigation and failure analysis
  • Building envelope design development and review for new construction
  • Indoor air quality testing
  • Design for rehabilitation of building envelopes
  • Field review services
  • Structural analysis of cladding and glazing
