Sustainability and energy
It’s now or never to tackle the climate crisis. As designers and engineers we embrace our ability to have a real impact on reducing embodied and operational carbon emissions. We think big on how we can advise our clients and colleagues to deliver a healthy future for all of us. We’re committed to delivering more with less on the journey to net zero carbon.
Our dedicated specialists work closely with our clients, design teams, engineers and consultants to advise and deliver energy efficient, sustainable designs from the outset of every project.
We understand, assess and guide our clients’ sustainable aspirations in the delivery of low and net zero carbon buildings, carbon reduction plans and whole life carbon studies. We believe that our involvement at the very earliest stage of a project is critical and brings the most benefit to each project.
To provide the highest quality advice our team has defined specialist qualifications, knowledge, and skills to deliver on low (zero) carbon solutions, building physics assessment and sustainability services, consisting of CIBSE accredited low carbon consultants, energy assessors, BREEAM/SKA accredited professionals, and RPEC energy efficiency consultants - different qualifications and specialisms, but with one objective; to create a healthy sustainable world.
Low / Net Zero Carbon
We assist public and private sector clients on their journey towards Net Zero Carbon. This includes a wide range of services to cover new buildings and existing buildings, operational energy and embodied carbon, and their carbon footprint as an organisation. We assist clients at different stages of their strategy, be that in the formulation of their targets, the definition of the scope required for projects or as part of a pathway over a number of years, covering:
- Low/net zero carbon building designs
- Net zero carbon reduction / decarbonisation plans
- Whole life operational and embodied carbon studies
- Carbon footprint analysis
- Funding applications assistance
We support sustainability in the many different shapes and forms our clients require, from high-level feasibility assessments to long-term asset management strategies, and from well-established sustainability assessments during design and construction projects to the assessment of actual performance in operation. Advising, talking to and helping clients manage the whole process, we provide the client advisory services required to assist at specific points in time or through a journey over a number of years:
- Client advisory services
- Sustainability project management
- Sustainability and energy masterplanning / asset management
- Whole-life costing
