A building's occupancy type greatly affects the demands required from the building enclosure. Rosen Scarfino analyzes the intended building use, project site climatic conditions, proposed exterior wall systems, and budget to help facilitate the facade design, and its installation, satisfy project requirements and expectations. We provide insight on the following design parameters so that informed decisions can be made to satisfy the applicable building facade aesthetic and performance needs:

  • Air Infiltration

  • Water Penetration

  • Structural Loads

  • Missile Impact Rating

  • Condensation Resistance

  • Solar Heat Gain

  • Thermal Transmittance

  • Sound Attenuation

  • Radio Frequency

  • Building Movements

  • Thermal Expansion/Contraction

  • Sealant Adhesion and Compatibility

  • Sustainable Materials and Finishes
