Committed to innovation
To innovate is to successfully exploit new ideas to bring something new to the market.
We have a limited amount of time to change human behavior to reduce the permanent effect of greenhouse gas emission on our communities. To take on climate change at the scale that is needed, we must harness our innovative design and engineering approaches.
“Communities have the potential to not only visualize their risk but also make more informed decisions for resiliency solutions.”

NET ZERO BUILDINGS
The 2030 Challenge asking the global architecture and building community to pledge that all new buildings, developments and renovations projects shall be carbon neutral in an effort to mitigate gas emission and fight climate change. Our Architectural solutions and strategies to the goals set out in the design competition is to design a form and shape of the building that could maximize daylighting and natural ventilation. To create a truly replicable strategy for NZE buildings and an integrated team that focused on every details with the big picture project goals in mind. NZB is no longer a novelty, we still have along way to go move beyond what we designed across our built environment.
Date from remote sensor and geospatial tools gives a more accurate picture of what is happening with everything from ocean acidification to flood risks. A consistent challenge is communicating flood risk has centered on the limitations a two dimensional map. Visualization Technology, which creates animations and photo simulations to better communicate changes in our built environment. The greater challenge is translating wealth of public information available in a visual and interactive way, by loading into the mapping environment, communities have the potential to visualize their risk but also make more informed decisions for resiliency solutions.
We need to change how we think about existing building projects. Building retrofits can result in a renewed asset that produces less carbon, uses less energy, improves occupant health and well-being. Feasibility studies are an important fist step in assessing the possibilities for retrofitting and the range of strategies available for achieving carbon reduction. We leverage digitals tools from parametric design to solar modeling software, thus we can modulate options for design, performance, systems and cost effective. This studies require multidisciplinary collaboration and expertise in everything from building envelope to efficient mechanical system to the cutting edge of parametric modeling software.
Improvements in energy efficiency, generation, storage and AI are redefining the electrical grid for data-driven power option and enabling smart city developments. Energy storage can be the key to increasing physical resilience and building a carbon neutral future. Energy storage systems provide reduced peak energy demand and increasing utilization of renewable energy.
