The energy services team works with the client design team to analyse the energy demand of new (and existing) developments and identify areas where fossil-fuelled energy consumption can be reduced through efficiency upgrades (i.e. improving building fabric), effective building layout (i.e. use of natural ventilation, decreasing unwanted solar gain) and through the incorporation of renewable energy technology.
The team has a thorough understanding of the energy demand of new and existing buildings and as such can analysis and determine the key areas that should be addressed and the solutions necessary to reduce energy consumption/CO2 emissions. This understanding has been built on a depth of project experience and the delivery of leading edge research into the field.
Working with our cost consultants / M+E engineers we can provide the costs, quantities and dimensions of the solutions we propose. The team also has a thorough understanding of the merits and constraints of renewable energy technology including planning, operational performance and cost aspects.
We work with clients at the inception stage of projects helping inform designs by provided detailed guidance about the building materials and technical solutions required to reduce carbon emissions.
