Wind channeling around and between buildings. Uncomfortably windy patios or pool decks. Gusty sections of sidewalks and walkways. Unless they are evaluated for outdoor wind comfort issues, new buildings can actually make things worse for pedestrians, cyclists, and patio diners. The wind experts at CPP have diagnosed and solved problems related to outdoor comfort for more than three decades. We understand how winds near buildings behave.We also know how to anticipate and reduce the risks of these environmental winds.
Wind creates special airflow patterns when it interacts with a building. When a new structure goes in, surprising problems often occur. A peaceful outdoor café, garden, or jogging path might suddenly experience surprisingly strong winds. Furniture on pool decks or balconies could be blown around, possibly piling up on one side or in a corner.
Such effects can be surprising, but they’re also predictable and preventable. At CPP, we understand how buildings and structures affect wind patterns. We use this knowledge to help you protect the outdoor experiences of people walking or lounging near the building.
Whether you’re a building owner, an architect, an engineer, or a developer, you have a stake in the success of your building. Contact CPP and let our talented team and years of experience ensure that your next project is efficient, safe, and reliable.
