soffits

The soffit is an often forgotten part of the Building Envelope. When an office or apartment building is designed with a basement areas, this may be below ground and used for storage, plant and machinery or a car park areas.

 

This utilises the same footprint as the building above to save space. It could be a concrete, steel or timber construction and a perfect place for cold to get in and warm to escape the building.

Insulating this space, can add greatly to the thermal performance of the building as a whole without the need to use costly frameworks and structure to secure the insulation.
