Services // Building Sciences Studio

The business of designing and constructing buildings has undergone dramatic change in the past decade. Buildings must not only be functional, they must meet a variety of important requirements related to longevity, energy-efficiency, occupant health, and sustainability.

As newer materials and systems are integrated into buildings, it is more critical that the design team and owners have assurance that these systems will perform as expected. Whether you are striving to reach zero site energy, source energy, or energy cost, H&A's advanced analysis can help drive your building's use as low as possible to make net zero achievable.

The mission of our Building Sciences Studio is to develop environmental stewardship and holistic, effective design for H&A’s clients through innovative research, advanced analysis, and design collaboration.
