The walls, doors, windows and roof that separates the inside of a building from the outside.
Compare? The exterior surface of a building's construction--the walls, windows, floors, roof, and floor. Also called building shell.
The exterior surface of a building's construction - the walls, windows, roof and floor. Also referred to as "building shell."
Exterior building partitions that enclose 'conditioned' areas or space.
The building envelope refers to the walls, ceiling, windows, skylights, and design features of a building.
The external elements walls, floor, ceiling, roof, windows and doors of a building that encloses conditioned space; the building shell.
The footprint into which you can build your home. In newer developments, you may purchase a building envelope, which is surrounded by common area space that is owned by the homeowners collectively.
A building envelope provides a barrier between the indoor and outdoor environments allowing the thermal comfort levels indoors to be adjusted to suit the occupants. This might require heating or cooling depending on the season and location of the building. Insulation is an important component of a building envelope.
a designated portion of a larger property, identified in a conservation easement or plan, within which future construction is permitted. The building envelope or homestead area can be included within the terms of an easement or can be left out - exempt from the easement's terms.
The net cubic space that remains for placing a structure on a site after setbacks and height / bulk regulations are observed. Bulk Regulations: Zoning or other regulations that control height, mass, density, and location of buildings. The purpose of bulk regulations is to provide proper light, air, and open space. Some bulk regulations also are intended to reflect context-sensitive design.
The exterior structure of a building that separates the interior environment from the exterior environment.
A building envelope includes all components of a building that enclose conditioned space. Building envelope components separate conditioned spaces from unconditioned spaces or from outside air. For example, walls and doors between an unheated garage and a living area are part of the building envelope; walls separating an unheated garage from the outside are not. Although floors of conditioned basements and conditioned crawlspaces are technically part of the building envelope, the code does not specify insulation requirements for these components.
The structural elements (walls, roof, floor, foundation) of a building that encloses conditioned space; the building shell.
The building envelope includes everything that separates the interior of a building from the outdoor environment, including the windows, walls, foundation, basement slab, ceiling, roof, and insulation.
Elements of the building, including all external building materials, windows, and walls, that enclose the internal space.
The exterior surfaces of a building that enclose the building's interior space. The building envelope includes walls, windows, doors, roof, and exposed floors.
The elements of a building which enclose conditioned spaces through which thermal energy is capable of being transferred.
The three dimensional space within which a building can be built
The entire exterior surface of the building, including walls, doors and windows, which encloses or envelops the space within.
The assembly of exterior partitions of a building which enclose conditioned spaces, through which thermal energy may be transferred to or from the exterior, unconditioned spaces, or the ground.
The skin of the building which provides weatherproofing, insulation and aesthetics.
A building envelope is the exterior assembly that encloses the interior space of a building. It serves as the outer shell to protect the indoor environment as well as to facilitate its climate control. Building envelope design is an application area that draws from all areas of building engineering, especially building science and indoor climate control.
