How Southface Can Help
The Southface staff of engineers, energy researchers and building science experts is actively engaged in researching advanced building technologies. With over 31 years of applied building science experience, Southface specializes in bringing advanced building concepts to reality. Using cutting-edge simulation tools to model heat and moisture in buildings, our team can help you to accurately predict the real-life energy consumption of your buildings.
Many Southface research projects employ short-term and long-term monitoring to confirm and characterize building performance. In addition to monitoring building and system performance, we undertake an array of diagnostic tests on a wide variety of buildings as part of our field research work. Our data-based confirmation of theoretical predictions helps refine models and identify new technical advances that lead to more efficient buildings.
