Building enclosure design and engineering

We are committed to add value to your projects and deliver performance-led design while controlling risks and driving cost out.

From the facade engineering point of view a building’s façade or on a wider perspective a building’s fabric is not only the expression of the architecture but is the medium to which all other disciplines, from structural to lighting design, resort for achieving design targets for the building.

Amounting at least 25% of a construction budget for new buildings the façade is potentially a risky element in successful building delivery requiring special expertise and technical knowledge.

Among the key skills BDS brings to design teams is contribution to the client’s strategic targets to achieve the best outcome for the building. From site investigation to the assessment of the microclimate to which the building is exposed we use the fundamental principles of Building Physics to ensure that a successful building fabric is delivered.
