Advanced Building Envelope Solutions
for High-Performance Buildings
Improve energy efficiency, durability, speed of construction, lifecycle cost and environmental impact. Focus on the role of the building envelope to achieve sustainability goals.
Commercial buildings use 20% of our energy and cause 17% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. But a properly designed, high-functioning building enclosure can reduce a structureís energy consumption by up to 40%.
The envelope separates interior from exterior and provides the interior space with protection from external elements. It controls heat flow, moisture flow and air flow. It provides structural integrity and protection from rain, snow, hail, wind, dust, pollutants, allergens and pests.
Advanced building envelope solutions let you optimize thermal comfort, manage moisture, enhance indoor air quality and withstand severe weather. In fact, itís impossible to build a sustainable building without a high-performance building envelope.
