Realizing the design vision with technical excellence

The C3 team works very well with architects. Indeed, some of us are architects ourselves. We often work as part of a design team, invited by architects to serve a variety of roles, including MEP Engineering, Commissioning, Code Consulting, or to provide Building Envelope expertise to ensure a practical, watertight design or to fix problems others cannot.

Proven LEED expertise

Architects often bring us in to consult on LEED and Sustainability issues. C3 has been involved in numerous LEED projects across the entire USGBC matrix: New Construction (NC), Commercial Interiors (CI), Core and Shell (CS), Existing Buildings (EBOM), and others. For clients considering LEED for their developments or existing buildings, C3 has developed a proprietary three-phase solution, all under one roof:

  1. Analyze where the building stands in regards to LEED before any design decisions or modifications are made. Budget costs are assigned to each point and opinions are rendered as to the feasibility of each.
  2. Detailed calculations, technical review and project submission to the USGBC.
  3. Technical services such as Commissioning, crucial to sustainability and for assuring proper building operations.

Balancing the technical and the visual

We appreciate and understand the aesthetic perspective of architects. When consulting on the Building Envelope we are adept at the necessary collaboration between architect and engineer, marrying the technical requirements to artistic and visual considerations.
