FULL EXTERIOR RENOVATION
Free Pre-Design Assessment
The Free Pre-Design Assessment is most beneficial from a project’s earliest conception. This step is recommended before floor plan layouts and building enclosure assemblies are chosen or fixed. The freedom to implement intelligent design choices early may save costly revisions to the renovation construction drawings.
Service includes the following:
- Review of preliminary renovation construction drawings (floor plan layouts, elevations, photographs, etc.) and verify any potential barriers from implementing an Akira Living super-insulated building enclosure or alternate building enclosure systems.
- Video conference meeting with the Homeowner and/or Contractor to discuss findings.
- Present what EnerPHit Certified Retrofit is (similar to Certified Passive House, but for renovations to existing buildings) and discuss the critical components. End result is receiving verification from the Passive House Institute (PHI) with a plaque to display on the building.
- Ask questions, discuss design considerations and the renovation process to meet the project goals.
Objective is to ensure the project is on path to transforming the existing structure into your dream home. Contact us to schedule your Free Pre-Design Assessment today!
Upon completion of the Free Pre-Design Assessment, we provide a Proposal for a Schematic Design Stage Energy Model to evaluate and optimize the renovation design to help our client make informed decisions. Learn more about the Schematic Design Stage Energy Model.
