Building Envelope + Why It Is Important

The building envelope is a critical component of any facility since it protects the building occupants + plays a major role in regulating the indoor environment. An integral part of the building’s foundation, walls, roof, windows + doors, the envelope controls the flow of energy between the interior + exterior of the building. A well-designed envelope plays a critical role in solar gain management, thermal load control, air infiltration + exfiltration, ventilation, moisture management, fenestration support, impact + disaster resistance, noise control, air-quality management, design value + aesthetic definition.
