The environmental performance of a building is a matter of balance between the energy use of building services and the losses and gains occurring through the building envelope. A holistic approach to the façade engineering and building services is essential for low energy sustainable buildings to create suitable habitable conditions.

Truly sustainable building facades can only be achieved by accurately establishing the levels of performance that these elements deliver in advance of the detail design and procurement phases. Environmental Compliance Analysis by Wintech allows for a deeper understanding of the likely levels of performance of a building envelope and can be used to accurately assess all of the thermal bridging and thermal bridging factors (Y value) of any potential design
