A commitment to you.
Building science is the collection of scientific knowledge that focuses on the analysis and control of the physical phenomena affecting buildings. It traditionally includes the detailed analysis of building materials and building envelope systems. H & R Construction is committed to employing the architectural-engineering-construction technology disciplines that formulate responses to the reoccurring physical phenomenon such as:
sun, wind, rain, temperature, humidity, and related issues
soil, ground-water activity, frost penetration, seismic activity, etc.
characteristics of materials with regards to corrosion, permeability to water and water vapor, construct-ability, compatibility, and longevity issues
characteristics of physics with regards to absorption, condensation, gravity, thermal migration/transfer, vapor pressure, adhesion/cohesion, friction, ductility, elasticity, and even the physiology of fungus/mold
The Human Element
comfort, sensory reaction, chemical sensitivity, etc.
The Energy Footprint
consumption, efficiency, environmental control-ability, maintenance considerations, longevity/sustainability, and occupant (physical) comfort/health
It has been our experience that small investments in improved techniques and technologies can reap huge rewards to you over the long haul. At H&R Construction, we are committed to continued education within the realm of building science and how it can improve your building envelope.
