Architects and Performance-Based Products
When it comes to the performance analysis of a building, architects need to make sure it meets specific thermal requirements. Ensuring these targets are met is vital to the energy efficiency of the particular building.
Over the last decade, more sustainable methods of construction have started to gain traction when it comes to achieving high energy efficiency.
Products are carefully chosen not only for their Performance-based features but also for their sustainability from a long term point of view.
Architects play a vital role when it comes to performance-based design and the products they choose. In this article, we’ll see why that is.
1. AN ARCHITECT’S DECISION HAS IMPACT ON A BUILDING’S EARLY STAGE DESIGN
From the moment pen touches paper, until the construction is finished, there are so many decisions that need to be made.
Which products are going to be used plays a huge role in the design process
The architect’s decisions are quintessential, especially when a building is in its early design stage. For example, a design decision that is made at an early stage would be close to impossible to change, unless the building will be reshaped.
An architect needs to be aware of the products that they’re going to use and also to think about performance in the long run.
2. ENERGY EFFICIENT BUILDINGS ARE THE FUTURE
We all know how the climate has changed in the last decade. Buildings have an enormous impact on the environment.
Today’s trend in construction (especially for self builders) is to go as green as possible. Building houses that will have the smallest impact when it comes to C02 emission’s is standard practice.
Architects are important decision-makers. They can recommend what type of performance-based products will increase the overall energy efficiency of a building.
Through their expertise architects are able to choose products that have a positive affect the design of a building.
Multi foil insulation is a good example of this. Due to its slim profile and the method of installation it is possible to achieve high levels of performance without comprising on room size.
3. ARCHITECTS NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW THEIR DECISIONS WILL IMPACT THE DESIGN OF A BUILDING
When it comes to performance-based design, architects have to learn how certain decisions can have an impact a building’s design.
Knowing about the range of products available in the market is essential to doing this. Without the knowledge of what options are available is difficult to make an in the best decision for the property.
Let’s take multifoil insulation as an example. You’re an architect and you’re searching for solutions that will meet the thermal requirements of building regulations.
Multifoil insulation is one of the solutions that stands out. Why? Because:
- Its high performance
- Its Easy to install
- Its Fully Certified
These are all key factors for architects when planning the construction of a building.
