​Forensics, Building Enclosures & Construction Claims

Metric Search has a comprehensive understanding of the Forensics, Enclosures and Construction Claims Sector, having supported businesses with their talent needs for a combined decade's worth of experience.

How can energy efficient building enclosures support net zero targets? Buildings consume 40% of all US energy; 71% of all electricity at an annual cost of over $400B/yr.

The Building Envelopes responsible for about 25% of all building energy use can impact up to 42% of Residential use and 57% of Commercial use.

The advancement in materials and using high- and low-tech solutions will work towards reducing building energy consumption and the way in which we approach the design of roofs, walls, and windows will play a key part advancing energy efficient building envelope design.
