High Performance Buildings

Building Performance is a measure of how well a building functions in many different aspects, including: energy efficiency, thermal comfort, water conservation, indoor air quality and daylighting. We utilize building performance analyses as an integral part of our design process to help our clients deliver high performance buildings.
