Building Envelope Engineering

Building envelope engineering concerns the design, construction, and maintenance of a building’s facade, roof, windows, and foundation. An effective building envelope (also called a building enclosure) seals your building against the elements, improving energy efficiency and comfort.
If you need to design a new structure or renovate an existing building, call ATS for a qualified structural engineer to meet your building envelope needs.
