Design Development

This process will include project-specific advice on basic cladding-design options, performance criteria, and the many technical, scheduling, and cost constraints that should be understood and defined during this phase:

  • Design Constraints and Performance Criteria
  • Materials Research and Evaluation
  • Budget Review
  • Development of Design Options
  • Sketch Detailing
  • Preliminary Fa├žade, Glass, and Climate Engineering
  • Outline Specifications
  • LEED Criteria Support
  • Climate Analysis
  • Energy and Thermal Modeling
  • Complex Geometry Modeling and Analysis
  • New Material Development and Testing
  • Daylighting Analysis and Modeling
  • Acoustic Analysis and Design
