Q: What is a Structural Envelope Company?
A: We as a structural envelope company specialize in the design, construction, and maintenance of building envelopes. The building envelope is the physical separation between the interior and exterior environments of a building, which includes the roof, wall framing, windows, doors, and other components that make up the building's structure and exterior shell.
We are responsible for ensuring that the building envelope is designed and constructed to meet specific performance requirements such as thermal insulation, air infiltration, and water resistance, as well as complying with local building codes and standards. We also can also be involved in diagnosing and resolving issues related to building envelope failures, such as leaks or structural damage.
We also partner with architects, engineers, or independent consulting firms who have extensive backgrounds in architecture, engineering, or building science and have expertise in various building envelope materials and systems, such as cladding, roofing, and waterproofing.
