Engineering and design consultancy, Hilson Moran, has become a Delivery Partner for the Better Buildings Partnership Design for Performance (DfP) project, which aims to address the operational energy and carbon “performance gap” in the UK building sector.
Hilson Moran will provide its expertise in sustainability, engineering, simulation modelling and operational performance monitoring to support the development of an industry-led scheme that enables new commercial office developments and major refurbishments to accurately predict the energy performance of buildings at early design stages, reduce consumption and benchmark against industry best practice expectations.
Hilson Moran has recently signed up to and contributed to the London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI), which echoes the UKGBC’s operational energy benchmarks for Commercial developments. The benchmarks add clarity to a pathway for designing Net Zero Carbon office buildings. The Design for Performance project is the leading tool for measuring predicted performance relative to the Net Zero Carbon pathway.
