CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

Schreiner Design can prepare a concept plan that addresses the client’s needs 

and desires, or use a plan supplied by the client

PLAN ANALYSIS

The concept plan is modeled to determine its energy performance characteristics.

Schreiner Design uses modeling software that satisfies the Passive House building standard.

Site-specific performance targets have been set using local climate conditions and are cost-optimized for local construction practice. The performance targets guide the design of the building assembly. This process produces a building design that is extremely energy efficient with a superior indoor environment.

DESIGN REVIEW AND ADJUSTMENTS

The modeling results are reviewed with the client to determine if desired performance has been reached. Adjustments can then be made to ensure the desired performance with consideration to the cost of the proposed design. This process can be performed with the client or their architect during the construction drawing process.
