Building science is a growing area of expertise that bridges the gaps between architecture, engineering, testing and building research, and is recognized as crucial to the success of minimizing the impact of the built environment on the natural world from the design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of buildings.
Building science and engineering are applied to the design of new buildings, the repair and maintenance of the increasing stock of existing buildings, and the development of new building materials and technologies. The issue of sustainability, pollution, energy use and health are becoming increasingly important.
Our work for new building projects is aimed at providing the design and construction team with appropriate support to help ensure that performance expectations for the building enclosure are met, while respecting other project objectives and budgets.
At SPA our passion for the design quality of the built environment has led to a reputation for creating high-performance, fiscally responsible and award-winning buildings. We work collaboratively, matching expertise to client and community goals. Supported by the skill and experience of a sizable staff of professionals we offer a full range of services to our clients.
