Building Envelope Engineering

Optimizing the outer shell

Building envelopes separate the exterior and interior environments of a building. These are often complex systems, and building envelope engineering must accomplish several performance objectives such as structural integrity, moisture control, temperature control and maintenance of conditioned air.  And, of course, all of these must be accomplished in an aesthetically pleasing manner. 

CTLGroup building envelope consultants help clients with all aspects of the building envelope:  foundation, walls, roof, doors, windows.  We help manufacturers with design and testing to make sure their component will integrate effectively and meet performance standards.  We also help designers and builders implement solutions that meet the demands and expectations of building owners and inhabitants.
