Building Envelope Design

The building envelope separates the interior from the exterior of a building and is essential in providing climate control and overall building energy efficiency. The building envelope includes the roof, foundation, floor, doors, windows, siding and associated components such as insulation.

Building owners and property managers are not only faced with meeting stringent energy codes, the general public’s demand for buildings with lower energy consumption, high-performance features, and adjustable interior climate controls has dramatically increased in recent years. Therefore, the building envelope design is a key consideration to staying competitive while reducing costs.
