OUR EXPERTS BRING EXPERIENCE TO INNOVATION.

Early phase consultation improves outcomes by freeing the designer to pursue their vision while a trusted adviser can keep an eye on technical underpinnings. Architecturally selected visual elements of material or form may coincidentally have constraints that are not easily recognized. Small changes in concept may have unrecognized impact on budget or systems performance.

Gordon H Smith Corporation has been at the forefront of curtain wall and building enclosure design consulting from its inception as a building technique. At GHSC we are always learning, but experience has already taught us much. Design innovation and site constraints cause many projects to have at least one unique challenge. GHSC works to analyze the problem, methodically apply our collective education and experience to narrow the unknown and finally to use the best talent available to get every answer. Value is achieved by establishing a robust and realistic program and guiding it to the anticipated end result.

Architects and Owners are encouraged to select the right consultants at the right time to bring experience to bear on design and cost. Alternatively budgets, schedules and coordination efforts can be significantly impacted if consultation is sought out after the design and bidding phases have been completed.

GHSC collaborates with developers, architects, engineers, fabricators and installers to work the process, guided by logic, prior effort and reasonable expectations for the best possible outcome. A qualified consultant’s early guidance is a value added service typically reducing revisions and saving money, schedule time, installation cost and improving building performance and durability.

If your goal is to create, re-purpose or re-clad a building, have GHSC’s building enclosure consultant experts on your team.
