Ensuring that your building’s envelope is sealed from the elements is YEG Engineering Group’s primary goal when designing a new or renovating an existing structure. If the building envelope is improperly designed or implemented, it could cost the owners or tenants thousands of dollars in unnecessary repairs and added utility costs. The building envelope controls the flow of air, heat, moisture, light, and sound within the building and, if correctly done, prevent potential water damage caused by it seeping through cracks or any other opening. It can also reduce the energy needed to heat or cool your building by blocking the heated or cooled air from escaping from the building. By ensuring the building envelope study is conducted correctly and is adequately designed on the project onset, we heighten the value of the building asset for clients for years to come.
