Northeast Projects supports designers, builders and homeowners to complete their high performance projects. Before investing in training or losing valuable time and money in mistakes, take advantage of these valuable design support services.
Building Performance Consulting
2 Hour Consultation
($360 - Flat fee) Schedule a 2 hour consultation in the office, on the construction site or over the phone. Whether this is your first project or you’re a pro, there are always challenges to overcome. You guide the consultation in the direction you wish - whether it be a design walk through, energy modeling support or questions about materials and details.
Building Performance Consulting
Bring Northeast Projects onto your team and take advantage of dynamic energy model updates integrated into the design process. Consultation includes Drawing review, design walkthrough, mechanical system review, Assembly and detail design as well as energy modeling.
Whole Building Energy Modeling
The first time a detail is tested should not be in the field. With the use of energy modeling software that addresses both the whole building as well as it’s individual components we can accurately predict a completed project’s success. The best approach to delivering a high-performance project on time and on budget is through an intelligent design and planning process.
Thermal Bridge Modeling
($600 - Flat fee) Thermal analysis visualizes the way heat flows through a particular building detail. It allows us to calculate our thermal bridge value (psi-value) and trouble shoot the issue. Results will be provided in format suitable for PHIUS certification.
Passive House Services
PH Feasibility Study
($1,500 - Single zone up to 2,500 ft2) Dedicated to Passive House, but not sure if your design will meet the standards? Before you fully commit to certification, find out if you’ll make the cut. The feasibility report includes review of the design drawings and a design development energy model that will allow testing of multiple wall assemblies, windows and HVAC systems. Even if Passive House certification is not pursued at the end, this is a valuable service to predict and optimize the performance of your project.
Passive House Design and Certification
Passive House certification involves many parties and processes. Working with Architects and other Building professionals, develop all required design documentation to submit to the Passive House Institute U.S. Coordinate with certification body, design team and PHIUS+ 2018 rater through design, QA/QC and final certification. Please reach out to talk more about your project and request a proposal.
Construction Admin & Site Analysis
Keep an expert eye on the construction of your High performance project while it is being built. Organize kick off meetings to describe unfamiliar building details and hold regular site meetings to address questions and concerns before they compound into problems. Use state of the art field testing tools to catch problems in real time and come up with effective solutions fast. Please reach out to discuss your project and to request a proposal.
Thermal Imaging (FLIR)
Thermal imaging cameras offer an invaluable view into the way heat is actually flowing through our buildings. This is the best way to inspect the quality of our designs and installations in real time and helps catch problems before they are too late to fix.
Post Occupancy Data Monitoring
Follow up with your project after construction has been completed. Take advantage of cutting edge post-occupancy data monitoring systems and an expert eye watching over their results. Please reach out to develop a custom monitoring plan for your project.
