This is the real geeky stuff and we love it.
It has become increasingly important to consider ‘U values’ and ‘Thermal bridge’ psi values early in the project as they can impact on building footprint and story height prior to planning. Further still, they can impact on buildability.
Early consideration of both can set the scene and design parameters for façade design, window arrangement and buildability. A well considered set of details are likely to bring capex efficiencies to the rest of the building since it can make SAP10 compliance much easier.
