Building Science Corporation designs buildings and communities to promote a more sustainable world. We believe that our understanding of building science ensures our designs are energy efficient, durable and provide healthy indoor air quality to the occupants. We believe that educating our clients leads to social transformation from which all citizens will benefit.
We begin the process of design by understanding the client and his or her goals and by listening to learn their design expectations as well as budgetary and scheduling needs. We are open to creative ideas, and work to translate these ideas into the reality of a successful building. We strive to design buildings that fit into the neighborhood as well as meet our client’s design aesthetic. It is important to us that buildings we design are functional, and that the space enclosed within the building is used effectively, so we work with the client to develop the program and fine-tune their spatial needs.
We work with other consultants where appropriate and promote the integrated design team approach for all of our designs to ensure that the different disciplines work well together. We believe that setting goals at the beginning of the design process allows us to continue to check our designs to ensure that the project goals are being met. We also believe in following up after the construction is complete to commission the project and to learn how the process might be improved in future jobs.
As a full service architecture firm, BSC utilizes a multi-disciplinary team approach to create comfortable, durable, healthy and energy-efficient buildings for our clients. Our work includes both new construction and retrofit projects that start with schematic design and are taken through construction documents, bidding, permitting, construction administration and post- construction monitoring.
