Did you know?
- To design an energy efficient building, your design professional needs to understand how your building envelope contributes to a NetZero structure. It is only through holistic building design that incorporates considerations for envelope, all building systems and energy usage that we can meet the stringent needs of the new energy codes.
Contact us to discuss your new and existing building needs and we will be happy to discuss the benefits of energy efficient design and construction.
- Lighting and all associated functions accounts for 40% of all electricity used in the average commercial building. A good lighting designer can reduce that usage by up to 40-50% depending on the building and program.
Contact us to discuss your lighting needs and how Longtin Engineering can help you reduce your energy consumption and improve your visual acuity.
