When creating a building envelope design, we take into account the following principles and factors:
- Air leakage control. Building durability
- Drainage and drying or rainscreen principles
- Lifespan and sustainability of the material
- Moisture and control mechanisms
- Material selection
- Protection from rain
- Wall assembly selection
- Thermal loss control.
In the design, we also take into account systems like below grade construction, exterior walls, roofs, atria and fenestration which includes the windows and metal or glass curtain walls. To make sure that the building complies with industry standards and local building codes, we make sure that the designer of the building envelope is very knowledgeable with such locals laws and standards.
ENG-Source is a company based in Calgary and aside from building envelope design, we also provide professional 2D drafting, 3D modelling, 3D rendering, custom Millwork and shop drawing services. Our team of designers are extremely adept at using popular CAD or computer-aided design software like AutoCAD, Microstation, CATIA, SolidWorks and Revit.
