Building sciences

Aurecon offers specialist building sciences services to complement our core building services and building structures capability. We offer this integrated specialist expertise globally in the following niche areas:  

  • Acoustics and vibration
  • Environmental modelling
  • Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD)
  • Facade engineering
  • Fire safety engineering

Aurecon has unique wide spread capability. This allows us to respond to our clients in their marketplace, with skills “on the ground”.

Characterised by creative thinking and technical innovation, these areas are linked through the use of high end simulation technology which is used for:

  • Acoustic simulation of venues, with and without public address systems
  • Fire and smoke behaviour
  • Internal air movement
  • Pedestrian movement
  • Prediction of energy consumption
  • Shadow analysis, daylighting, glare studies
  • Thermal performance and response
  • Wind and plume behaviour around buildings

This enables us to help our clients deliver buildings with outstanding amenity and safety, while using the minimum of the world’s resources, wherever we are in the world.
 
Our clients benefit from this rigorous technical backing of our ESD ideas. We believe in “Practical Sustainability”, sound design taken from first principles, avoiding reliance on fashion or gimmicks. We deliver sustainable design that works.
 
Aurecon has complementary capability spanning Building structures and Building services. This allows us to respond to a diverse range of client needs with leading technical skills at many locations around the world.
