THE SMART ENCLOSURE SYSTEM
Today buildings should be energy efficient carbon sinks that quickly become carbon negative. The Smart Enclosure does this, maximizing climate impact, while providing affordable, healthy, safe and ecological assemblies.
The Smart Enclosure system isn’t a one size fits all prescription, but a range of strategies that can be made project and site specific. While the context may vary, the solutions strive to deliver these shared goals:
- Lowered embodied carbon & Greater carbon sequestration
- More natural materials & Lower toxicity
- 100+ year durability with Smart vapor control and airtightness
- Integration of enclosures into whole building design
The three tiers of the Smart Enclosure System are guide-posts to better understand the general effectiveness of one’s efforts at making a more sustainable building, and are not precise demarcations of success.
