Make sure your architect is also a building scientist
Because Brach Design clients are often interested in bold and meaningful cuts energy consumption, they often choose to have us push the limits of sustainable design. This can involve more cutting edge construction details and strategies, as well as more unconventional financial and investment analysis. We provide specific reports and detailed graphic displays to help clients understand and determine the most realistic and achievable goals, and the most reasonable and cost-effective path to achieve them.
High performance building also requires a much more intimate knowledge of building science and building physics on the part of the architect, to ensure accuracy in design and the elimination of any unintended consequences of untested products, materials and methods. This is why we have developed the capability to do detailed thermal bridge modeling as well as hygro-thermal climate-specific analysis of wall assemblies, windows, roofs and other building components.
