Services // Building Sciences

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.

Our Building Sciences Studio provides analytical capabilities and expertise beyond the reach of standard design, helping our clients produce better performing buildings in a cost effective and timely manner. Specific expertise includes:
