Liebert Engineering, Inc. is very pleased to announce the creation of their newly formed division; Liebert Building Sciences. Liebert’s long-term focus and goal is to become a leading East Coast building sciences and forensics firm with a focus on energy related projects including Existing Condition Assessment, Energy Audits, Building Codes and Energy Master Planning as well as Forensic Consulting Engineering.
Building science is the collection of scientific knowledge that focuses on the understanding, analysis and control of physical phenomena affecting buildings and its occupants. This includes the detailed analysis of building materials and building envelope systems in addition to HVAC, lighting, people and activities’ uses.
The practical purpose of building science is to provide predictive capability for optimizing building performance and understanding or preventing building failures or through the use of forensic engineering analysis to determine the cause and origin of a failure. Failure may lie in the form of a “sick” building or a severely non-performing HVAC/mechanical building control or other environmental system.
With facilities managers increasingly focused on bottom-line results, the lessons learned from building sciences can bring about significant building operating and maintenance cost and energy savings. Building Sciences is essentially a process of diagnosing facility problems and providing solutions, employing a "holistic" view that takes into account all the elements of a building.
Liebert Building Sciences’ Division will focus on the following areas:
- Building and Systems Analysis
- Assessments, Energy Audits, Energy Master Plan
- Efficiency, and Conservation Planning
- Forensics Investigations including Analysis and Reporting
