Novus approaches building design holistically, working closely with architectural and engineering design teams while providing the benefit of expertise in multiple disciplines.
Novus’ acoustics, vibration, air quality, sustainable water and climate-change work pervades most building types. Our service mix and integrated design approach is particularly well suited to; Health Care, Laboratories, Higher Education, Institutional and other high-performance buildings. In these facilities there is an ongoing competition where requirements need to be balanced, considering energy efficiency, safety, comfort and functionality.
Novus’ technical capabilities in building design include state-of-the-art tools for modelling, prediction and measurement of performance. This includes baseline site surveys, construction and land-use impact assessments, experimental testing, and full-scale proof-of-performance measurement and evaluation.
