Gain peace of mind through the lens of applied building science and higher performance.

Whether building new or remodelling, addressing proper design details for your exterior envelope will protect your investment and avoid future problems by addressing key strategies for water drainage, air tightness/leakage, thermal resistance and vapour control between your indoor environment and changing outside climate.

Instead of making early mistakes that compound over time, obtain building science advice before you build. From specifying performance window or wall assembly components to recommending proven or improved installation methods of building materials, our consultation process identifies issues and potential opportunities to lower your risk, save operating costs over the long term and provide clarity on what you can specifically do right now to improve or build a high performance lasting envelope that also meets high architectural expectations (rather than look like someone's science experiment).

Properly constructed assemblies protect your investment. Good architecture is both science and art.

Have an existing air leakage or vapour/water issue or are planning to re-clad or improve the energy efficiency of your building or home? Call us for a comprehensive audit that comes with professional recommendations to enhance the durability, continuity of control layers and energy conservation potential for the life of your building.

If you already feel we can help you, contact us and schedule a time to briefly discuss your envelope design or building science issues. If you require a full Hygrothermal Building Assessment, we typically coordinate our investigations with a preferred envelope scientist capable of assessing and modelling both the effects of heat and moisture in envelope assemblies.

* Fees begin at $500 for a basic audit and vary in scope according to the needs of your project.

Think you can't afford an architect? You can.

For many people, full architectural design services are not in the cards. In these cases, to provide greater access and help more people improve building outcomes, we began offering individual and packaged design services in addition to full services so that you can work with a design professional when it matters most: in the earliest stage of your project when ideas are formed and advanced on paper with zero construction cost implications to making repeat changes.
