• High performance building and consulting by Hammer & Hand
 

Inciting evolution in building

As a high performance builder we collaborate with clients and architects to create buildings of beauty, durability, comfort, and performance – “legacy buildings” that promise a lifespan measured in generations.

While 21st century building science powers our high performance building approach, its ethos is inspired by John Ruskin’s words from a century ago:

“When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for.”

For Hammer & Hand, building to last is the most fundamental definition of sustainability and the best path to green building.

We do it with physics. Our systems-based understanding of how buildings function enables us to deliver projects that boast both unmatched resilience and revolutionary energy efficiency, reducing building energy consumption for heating and cooling by 90%: a big win for the planet.

We also do it through delight. For a building to last, its inhabitants must value it. So we use high performance building to create gracious spaces, infused with oxygen-rich air, steady and even thermal comfort, and strong inside-outside connections. Our advanced modeling tools coupled with our in-the-dirt practical experience allow us to give architects and clients more freedom to make the aesthetic and programmatic design decisions they need without compromising building performance.

High performance building and high design go hand-in-hand at Hammer & Hand. Contact us today to learn more.
