As client focused national leaders in innovation and sustainable design, BSA LifeStructures was founded on the principle of integrated architecture and engineering for complex projects. From the exacting needs of a high-acuity operating room to the safe removal of a laboratory’s hazardous materials, each system’s design solution centers on eliminating waste and maximizing efficiency. Our engineering experts utilize the most current technology to simplify communication of highly technical issues between the owner, the design team and construction partner to deliver creative solutions from the simplest to the most sophisticated, which often saves time and money for our clients.
What is energy modeling? Energy modeling software is an important design tool we use to analyze and improve building energy efficiency. When we design with an energy model, we test energy-saving strategies for occupant comfort, optimal return on investment, and to meet your energy efficiency goals.
As an integrated team of engineers (MEP and low voltage) and architects, BSA LifeStructures, has the resources and expertise to provide a facility condition assessment (FCA) across a portfolio of existing buildings/assets. On-site assessments gain a comprehensive understanding of a facility or a group of assets and their systems based on age, materials, design, usage, and life expectancy, to support overall capital and maintenance budgeting and planning. Funds for capital planning and maintenance are consistently being challenged; however, an FCA puts data in your hands that is technically accurate, relevant, and serves as the basis for short, mid, and long-term strategies for funding and establishing a realistic capital plan.
Design and integration of interactive communication infrastructure systems requires industry experts with up-to-the-minute knowledge on cutting edge practices. Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDD) are credentialed in the design, integration, and implementation of low voltage communications systems and are required to maintain these designations through continuing education and experience.
