With the advent of these technological advances in the industry, it has become challenging for Architects to keep up with the variety of design and control options. So what do Architects do when faced with new, exciting yet overwhelming choices?

The answer is to rely upon an expert consultant. This is nothing new, as we see a litany of specialists engaged to work on projects, such as: lighting, acoustics, audio-visual, façade, security, landscape, radio frequency, to name a few. It is time for the architectural community to consider the advent of the Shading Solution Consultant
