The 4 Hudson Square development in New York, USA was a recent project for Windtech Consultants. Besides undertaking the wind tunnel studies of the wind loads on the façade and structure, Windtech Consultants used Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) extensively on this project.
The project’s emphasis on sustainable design was one of its most important components. To lessen the effect of wind and thermal stack on entryways and lower the building’s energy use and carbon footprint, Windtech conducted a CFD study. The team also examined the building’s façade pressures using wind tunnel testing to make sure the design was reliable and secure.
The project’s emphasis on pedestrian safety was another crucial element. In order to measure pedestrian wind comfort, our team carried out a CFD study, taking into account the wind speeds and turbulence surrounding the building. Through this study, it was possible to make sure that the building would be safe for people to enter and exit, even in windy situations.
In order to make sure the building can withstand the severe winter weather conditions anticipated in New York City, USA we also examined snow loads due to the accumulation of snow over the winter season. The building’s functionality and safety were improved thanks to this analysis.
Our team’s dedication to delivering high-quality service and expertise in wind engineering helped create a safe, efficient, and sustainable building. We are proud to have been a part of this project. Windtech’s knowledge and commitment to excellence have helped to establish the company as one of the leading Wind Engineering consultants USA-wide and the in the industry.
