Building Envelope Architecture

Plans are nothing; planning is everything.

Knowing what you want to build and knowing that what you want to build will last are not the same thing. Zero/Six plans for one thing very well, “keeping the outside out.” Nothing improves a buildings efficiency and lasting endurance more than planning the envelope well. Having consulted on more than 450 projects, our reputation for undertaking challenging and multifaceted infrastructures has enabled us to identify threats, understand our client’s needs and to achieve optimal envelope efficiency by providing architectural solutions that offer innovative thinking and the latest technology for the future of your building construction project.

Zero/Six  is an architect-owned and architect-managed envelope consultancy firm. Our approach to building envelope is to synthesize all gathered field information, all of our knowledge of building envelope systems, all work produced by our consultants, and all of the goals of our clients to produce deliverables that are accurate, appropriate, and perfect. Zero/Six building designs start at the field inspection and forensic investigation phase; our inspectors have knowledge of all building envelope components and assemblies from many years of involvement in facility assessments of new and existing buildings. This knowledge allows us to produce reports with specific recommendations that our design staff can use to produce a design. Our team produces shop drawing quality construction documents and customized design specifications based upon our knowledge of the exterior envelope. After the deliverables are completed they are checked then reviewed, modified, and sealed by our Principal in Charge. We model our design process off of three things—quality, systems selection, and cost to client.

FAQ

Questions
What exactly is the pre-construction phase, and why is it crucial for a successful building project?

The pre-construction phase is the early planning stage of a construction project. It's where crucial decisions are made to minimize life cycle costs and maximize building sustainability. It allows us to address potential mistakes and optimize designs for long-term performance and energy efficiency.

How does Zero/Six ensure that our building design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing?

Our architectural experts work closely with clients to craft designs that marry aesthetics with functionality. We prioritize a balance between form and purpose to create buildings that are not only visually appealing but also highly practical.

What role does Building Information Modeling (BIM) play in your pre-construction services?

BIM is a critical tool we use to visualize your project in detail. It allows us to create a 3D model of the project, providing insights that enhance planning, coordination, and execution. Our BIM expertise ensures that you have a clear picture of the project before it's even built.

How does Zero/Six safeguard the quality and integrity of our project during the design and construction phases?

We offer peer review services that ensure every aspect of your project meets industry standards. Our expert reviews serve as an additional layer of quality assurance, guaranteeing excellence in every detail, from design to construction.

What is the significance of a Commissioning Plan in pre-construction, and how does Zero/Six create one for our projects?

A Commissioning Plan is vital to ensure that all systems work harmoniously within a building. We develop customized plans that cover everything from HVAC to electrical systems, aiming to guarantee a seamless and efficient project execution. This process sets the foundation for a well-functioning building from the start.
