Sustainable Buildings Services
Morrison Hershfield is a North American leader in sustainability for the built environment. We understand the complexity of the new generation of sustainable buildings. High performance green buildings are achieved as we strive for more efficient designs and simplified building systems. Our experts are mindful of a broader range of possibilities and impacts while assessing synergistic trade-offs.
We bundle the following list of sought after sustainability buildings services to help clients achieve high performing green buildings. Clients are offered higher quality and better integrated solutions, as well as a single source contact for ease of sub-consultant management. Our specialists are all in-house, thereby removing the geographical and social barriers that exist when design teams work with multiple firms. We are an inherently integrated engineering firm.
Expert LEED Facilitation
We understand better than most the intents and flexibilities that exist within LEED.
Energy Modeling and Simulation
Accurate simulation models assist with making informed decisions on energy saving design strategies to create an optimized whole-building design solution.
Building Commissioning Authority
Commissioning the whole building is extremely valuable. It offers a method by which all building systems can be reviewed, tested and properly transitioned to the building operator.
Envelope and Materials Durability Analysis
We understand how to provide a functional and durable building envelope while balancing the risks associated with emerging building technologies.
Code and Life Safety
Our expert Building Code Consultants provide valuable code interpretations that consider the use of emerging technologies in green buildings.
