Bernoulli's Principle

Bernoulli’s principle  uses wind speed differences to move air. It is a general principle of fluid dynamics, saying that the faster air moves, the lower its pressure. In building design air farther from the ground is less obstructed so it moves faster than lower air and thus has lower pressure. This lower pressure can help suck fresh air through the building. A building’s surroundings can greatly affect this strategy, by causing more or less obstruction.

Life Cycle Design (LCD)

Life Cycle Design is a global benchmark for the design and use of a building. Life cycle assessment is the international standard for quantifying the environmental impacts of a building over its entire design life. Perth has been behind the times somewhat when it comes to such performance measures but we’re catching up fast. There are many commercial projects in Perth now embracing the system and it will only be a matter of time before it is adopted for residential buildings. Such performance analysis will one day set a benchmark for resale of a property. From commercial buildings to a residential home, LCD will become an integral feature in the design of every building.

Solar Power Aesthetic Design

For a long time now designers and architects have just added PV solar panels to a new home without giving it the attention they deserve.  It’s nearly always an afterthought and they become a detraction from what otherwise is a beautiful looking home. We make it a point with all of our designs to ensure we know what final products will go into the home so those products become a part of the design. It’s easy to discuss with our clients what their current power usage is with a view to determining what it would be in their new home. A system can be designed to suit and then built into the design.
