We are Building Scientists
A building science consultant is a professional who specializes in the analysis and evaluation of building systems and components. They use their knowledge of physics, engineering, and materials science to help building owners and managers optimize the performance, energy efficiency, and durability of their structures.
At Evergreen Building Science, we understand the importance of a healthy built environment for both the environment and the occupants. We believe that buildings should be designed, constructed, and operated to maximize energy efficiency, sustainability, and indoor occupant comfort. Our team uses the latest in building science technology and methodology to ensure that buildings are functioning at their highest potential.
Where does Building Science Consulting fit in?
The role of a building science consultant can vary depending on the project and client's needs. Some of our key responsibilities may include:
Conducting building inspections and assessments to identify potential problems and areas for improvement, such as air leaks, moisture intrusion, and thermal inefficiencies.
Developing and implementing strategies to improve the building's energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and sustainability, such as the installation of energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, insulation, and moisture barriers.
Providing guidance and recommendations on building codes, regulations, and industry standards related to building design and construction.
Collaborating with architects, engineers, contractors, and other stakeholders to ensure that building projects are designed and constructed to meet performance, safety, and environmental standards.
Performing forensic investigations to identify the cause of building failures, such as water damage, mold growth, or structural problems, and recommending remediation and repair solutions.
Overall, a building science consultant plays a critical role in ensuring that buildings are safe, healthy, and sustainable for their occupants and the environment. They use their expertise in building systems, materials, and design to help clients make informed decisions and optimize the performance of their structures.
