Design Reviews

In the conceptual and design phases of a construction project, a design review provides building owners and stakeholders with an assessment of their building’s expected performance. It also offers an opportunity to identify modifications that will lead to a more sustainable building, reduced operating costs and improved durability.

How We Can Help

Southface offers design reviews for both residential  and commercial building projects still in their conceptual or design phases. Making use of an “integrated design approach” that considers all aspects of a building’s performance and the synergies between operational systems, a Southface design review helps owners identify and address opportunities for increased building performance. Because it promotes collaboration and consultation between project team members to identify potential problems early in the process, a Southface design review can also reduce the need for change orders.
