Building Physics

BMT provides wind engineering specialist consultancy services for the assessment of all aspects of architectural aerodynamics for the cost effective and safe design of civil engineering structures.

In light of increasingly driving sustainable design criteria the building industry is increasingly facing basic building physics related engineering challenges such as ventilation, envelope performance, microclimate and internal air quality. Building physics draws heavily on rapidly evolving specialist computational modelling techniques such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

BMT maintains a highly resourceful building physics group that provides specialist consultancy services to designers, planners and developers to enhance and optimize building performance and energy efficiency in accordance with prevailing green building design guides. Key expertise is held in a number of areas including internal airflow, thermal comfort, fire and smoke control, building blast, sunlight / shadowing, glare control, stack effects and wind driven noise emissions.  

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.
