Building Science Consultants
GWS provides comprehensive building science consulting services to our clients. We work with builders, individuals and trade contractors to evaluate the construction process, construction techniques and applications of building components to determine the optimal application based on climate conditions, building performance and cost effectiveness.
As part of the consulting process, we develop specific construction details outlining the proper construction techniques based on climate zone in which the homes are constructed as well as the building components being used. GWS’s staff of engineers and building science specialists work with clients to develop building science road maps to guide them in energy efficient construction practices that increase building performance, durability and decrease liability.
