Building analysis and modeling (BAM)

Integrated buildings with best-in-class performance

Our high-performance building analysis and modeling (BAM) services are an essential part of the design process. We provide our clients with the data they need to make informed choices about construction budgets as well as indoor environmental quality; employee productivity; and energy, water, and carbon conservation. We lead workshops to communicate the relative merits of environmental-conservation strategies, and we work with project teams to establish measurable goals and a path for how to achieve them.
