High-performance design

Holistic, integrative, data-driven design

At LEO A DALY, we believe that high-performance design is good design. Our range of in-house expertise enables us to work in a way that is holistic, integrative and data-driven.

Beginning in the earliest stages of a project, we use software tools to help us understand how our design decisions are impacting energy use, the quality of the indoor environment and carbon emissions, to name a few. Throughout design, we use iterative modeling to optimize both passive strategies and active systems, enabling a design process that often results in a higher performing building without compromising project schedules and budgets.
