Our goal is to see every building enclosure meet both code compliance and performance expectations. Before detailed decisions are finalized, our clients benefit from a review of the enclosure design strategies at a conceptual level. This review provides an opportunity to reflect on the basic building science behind the selection of specific assemblies and materials. Experience shows that changes made at the conceptual stage of design have far less cost impact that those made during construction. A typical Concept Review considers the following: Environmental loads Energy performance targets and compliance options Life cycle expectations Constructability, sequencing, and complexity of detailing Structural support
