The preservation of natural resources and reduction in carbon emissions is a major theme in the 21st century and will continue to drive changes to the regulatory frameworks of the UK and Worldwide. We are at the forefront of implementing these changes, based upon our Low Carbon Research programmes and working closely with BRE.
Planning for the future
Our basic philosophy is to help create buildings where the fabric, structural and services design is optimised leading to reduced energy demands, carbon emissions and environmental impact in a cost effective and socially acceptable way.
Tools and techniques
We use a number of recognised Environmental Impact Assessment Tools; with Dynamic Thermal Modelling sitting at the head of our integrated approach to Energy Conservation; to help answer many of the project specific “what if?” questions, the design process asks.
Thermal Modelling also enables us to make informed and cost effective decisions with respect to practical renewable energy solutions and associated carbon savings.
