LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW ENTUITIVE APPROACHES ENGINEERING CHALLENGES, AND DISCOVER WHY ENGINEERING PERFORMANCE MATTERS FOR YOUR PROJECT.

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

Challenge One

The roof of the building includes undulating lines that are free flowing and blend with the rolling hills of its surrounding site. The curves of the roof and how the roof connects seamlessly to the exterior wall cladding and glazing systems was a particular challenge in terms of material selection, assembly composition, and the requirement to maintain the continuity of the building envelope sufficient for occupant comfort and the air and water tightness of the building.

Solution One

Entuitive worked with the architect to evaluate the various cladding, roofing, and glazing options, and details to ensure the building envelope met the aesthetic requirements, while beneath the visible skin it provided the required moisture management and continuity of air barriers, vapour retarders, and thermal barriers for the internal uses of the building.
