On every project we aim to maximise passive design to reduce the initial carbon footprint. Highly efficient low carbon system design reduces energy even further before renewable technologies are considered.
All aspects of our engineering designs are continuously challenged to ensure that they exceed brief and satisfy the needs of our clients. Our concept designs ensure that real value is added and a strong platform provided for the design to be developed.
Our designers work closely with our Sustainability and Building Performance experts, using advanced dynamic thermal modelling and computational fluid dynamic software to optimise our designs and avoid over-specification, delivering environmental performance and cost efficiencies for our clients.
Nearly all of our engineering designs are developed and tested in a 3D virtual environment, achieving high levels of coordination to reduce risk for our clients and ensuring that they are spatially efficient and can be installed and commissioned exactly as intended. This 3D environment is made accessible to our clients, enabling them to visualise the progress and results at all stages of the design development and allow them to comment if they wish.
On every project we appoint a dedicated Project Director and Project Coordinator to provide a central point of contact to our clients, whilst managing the ever increasing complexity of multiple services required in modern buildings.
Our designs are interrogated by our Facilities Management experts and Contract Managers to ensure our designs are robust and will operate effectively for their lifespan. We have extensive experience in helping our clients to operate and fine tune their buildings in the early years after occupation to ensure our designs fulfil your expectations and are being operated efficiently.
In all stages of our work, we consider the full life cycle of the engineering systems, incorporating appropriate adaptability to ensure future technologies and plant replacement can be carried out safely and cost effectively.
