Vidaris is a provider of niche consulting services within the A/E/C industry for both new construction and existing buildings, with a focus on high-performance buildings and specialty structures. Through a holistic approach, Vidaris creates value for its clients through the unique synergy of its consulting services for building envelope, sustainability, code advisory and construction advisory. Vidaris maintains independence as a third party advisor in order to best deliver and serve our clients’ requirements and expectations. In sum, Vidaris helps make buildings better.

Envelope

Vidaris maintains the highest quality standards of design and installation of the walls, foundation, roof, doors and glazing to ensure that they produce a durable enclosure system. These systems present a great opportunity for architectural expression, sustainability and energy reduction in the built environment. Our consulting services ensure enclosure systems intelligently respond to factors of light, radiation, load, pressure, wind, acoustics, motion, temperature differentials (expansion and contraction), and moisture. The building envelope must function as a barrier, mitigating potential damages and producing healthy, comfortable and sustainable indoor environments. Our experienced staff ensures that each component is properly designed, assembled and installed into a robust building envelope system.

Energy & Sustainability

Vidaris' team provides consulting services for existing buildings and at every phase of the building's design and construction process for all building types. Additionally, we will perform assessment, benchmarking, auditing, monitoring and non-destructive testing of building components and systems to confirm anticipated efficiencies and code compliance as well as diagnose and modify inefficient or defective installations. Vidaris utilizes various building modeling software programs and techniques to analyze investment and operating costs in determining effective return on investment and payback periods. Our team integrates, evaluates, and analyzes energy efficiency measures to promote financial transparency so decision makers can be better informed about potential energy efficiency improvements and returns. Additionally, our Sustainability team offers green building rating system consulting, including programs like LEED, Energy Star, BREEAM, Passive House, WELL & others.
