Building Scientist – Value Added

It is very important that you involve someone who understands building science in your decision to build or renovate your home. Don’t accept “because that is the way we always do it” as an answer as we have learned lessons about why we should not do some things. This home under construction in Crossroads Farm was designed to be a high performance project. There are little items that change in design that make a huge difference for the construction and it takes a slight learning curve to get it just right. Most builders are not spending their time learning about the latest thinking in building science, but rather working hard to keep up with their current projects. A building scientist spends a tremendous amount of time researching and understanding how buildings work. As an architect that is focused on building science, I am able to use the knowledge gained through research to help you live healthier and more energy-efficient.
