Green Buildings & Sustainability
CTLGroup’s Architecture + Building Science practice can assist owners in achieving more efficient and sustainable structures. Our building enclosure specialists design high-performance roof, wall, and waterproofing systems for new and existing buildings to reduce energy usage and carbon footprints.
Our building science architects and engineers can peer-review construction documents for owners prior to construction. This value-added service allows an independent evaluation of the building enclosure design in the context of established performance criteria. In-depth peer reviews can include hygrothermal analyses of wall and roof assemblies to model water vapor flow and condensation potential and finite-element analyses to evaluate potential thermal bridging effects.
CTLGroup can commission building envelopes to help new construction and major renovation projects achieve LEED® certification goals and provide additional Quality Assurance to building owners and developers. During the course of construction, CTLGroup can provide on-site observation and ABAA air barrier auditing to help ensure proper workmanship and energy performance of the building envelope.
