Engineered Shading Solution has long been considered an afterthought, however now it is an essential element of a building system. In essence an Engineered Shading Solution is a sustainable system for an interior or exterior windows, which engage the latest technologies to control heat, glare, and light.
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.
Working with a consultant can provide expert advise on how to design, build, and install an Engineered Shading Solution, that will reduce solar heat gain, lower annoying glare, and control unwanted daylight.
