Designed, Sealed, Delivered
Thursday, Jun 26, 2014
The building envelope is a union of design and function, showcasing unique architectural features, while providing protection from and offering a visual connection to the outdoor environment. Although the functionality of an envelope is essential to the performance of a building, it is sometimes taken for granted.
How can we know if an envelope is underperforming? A lesser-known area of commissioning, envelope commissioning, is poised to gain traction with its recent inclusion in LEED v4 (Enhanced Commissioning, Option 2). Join us in exploring New York City case studies with complex façades and how the envelope commissioning process exposes their true performance.
