While the first two are conceptual, it is the engineering that is much broader and encompasses everything from the performance of the building enclosure systems, which involves below-grade assemblies, curtain wall and skylights, the precast concrete, stone, or masonry walls, to the heavy timber or any other variety of façade systems and materials being used.
