Wind, Snow & Energy

As our world becomes more urban, the interaction of wind and climate with the built environment will become more important to the creation of sustainable built and natural environments. SLR frequently assists with building design, land-use planning, building approvals, urban and landscape design, policy development, agriculture, water management and efficiency, coastal management, and insurance risk assessments with regards to the implications of our ever-changing climate. Our experience includes projects across diverse regions, from the Arctic to desert environments.

Overview

Using a variety of qualitative and quantitative analysis approaches, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnels, our team can accurately model air flow, turbulence, and, heat transfer to answer key concerns from clients and regulatory bodies. In addition, we can address the implications on operations from snow and sand drifting.

We use this analysis to address pedestrian wind and thermal comfort concerns, providing our clients with an innovative approach to ensure their design is correct the first time.

Our team also provide weather and climate analysis for extreme weather scenarios and future climate change projection, from small community impacts to regional influence.
