Our designers also stay abreast of the latest MEP and energy standards and guidelines such as ASHRAE, LEED and Energy Star for buildings.
Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) is a complement to Building Information Modeling (BIM). Where BIM defines material spatial relationships and physical information, VDC adds the action and methodology of construction to BIM. In simple terms, BIM shows what’s physically being built while VDC shows the building process.
There are new technologies and techniques to reduce energy cost and consumption appearing regularly. Many of these new technologies are driven by new opportunities to partner with utilities to protect the environmental. Let us show you how to save money and while being a better partner of the community and the planet.
