Benefits of Going Green

Page under development

Pre-Design (Concept): Establishing the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR). This establishes the design, comfort and performance goals of the project from a technical and administrative viewpoint. 

Pre-Design (Concept): Integrated Design taking into account inputs of all specialist consultants at the design table itself. In a design charette format, structural, MEP inputs are integrated in a Design Brief Report format at the pre-design stage.

Schematic Design: Testing and quantification of benefits: use of high yield passive design and climate-specific strategies for maximum performance.

Schematic Design: Energy modelling to establish the major decisions for meeting requirements set out in the OPR: setting standards for MEP.

Detailed Design: Integration of daylight autonomy in building design, keeping a balance between light ingress and heat gain from the sun.

Detailed Design: Electric lighting design to enhance the architectural design. Interior areas, façade lighting, site and landscape lighting design. Meeting code compliance through emergency lighting design in basements and ancillary areas.
