We Think Differently To Help Clients Succeed

Lightning in a bottle – achieving the seemingly impossible. That’s our challenge.

To do this, we have to think outside the box. This often involves dismantling an original idea and rebuilding it around a new one. Our framework is resilience, redundancy, and a healthy respect for the unexpected environment. At the core of our practice is the belief that products and assemblies must perform beyond the status quo. Standards and criteria mean nothing if the bar is set too low. So, we raise the bar.” We live our projects. They become part of us. We embrace the most difficult, the messiest, the orphaned. From this chaos emerges elegant ideas, highly evolved products, and resilient enclosure systems.

What’s New in the Lab?

CAUTION! High performance laboratory and testing facility under construction! Work is currently underway on construction of Built Environment’s brand-new building and materials science lab located in Leland, NC, just south of Wilmington. The new lab features state-of-the-art equipment that enables our team to test building materials for structural strength, water permeability, adhesion, and so much more. In addition to lab space, we’re building a test wall apparatus that we’ll use for missile impact testing, flexural strength, and more. Stay tuned for updates as our new lab comes online.
