A new Build or major refurbishment is a critical opportunity to design in energy savings – savings that will last for the lifetime of the building. Decisions made at the design stage will have significant cost implications over the life of the building.
Lifetime energy costs are far greater than design and build costs and making the right choice has the potential to save you a substantial sum. Retrofitting energy efficiency measures into an already designed building can only be done to a limited degree and at a much higher cost.
It is also crucial to future-proof the building to be fit for purpose as average temperatures rise and extremes of weather become progressively more frequent.
Our consultants have worked alongside design teams on a wide range of projects from 1000 m2 to 100,000 m2 and demonstrated how designs can be significantly improved on minimum (part L) building regulations in a practical and cost effective way.
We can contribute to your design process at any point up to and including RIBA stage D, but energy efficiency is best designed in from the outset and should be a fundamental aspect of the design from RIBA stage A/B (Master planning/Feasibility) onwards. Architectural passive design features are by far the best foundation for energy savings and climate proofing.
For the periodic refurbishment of large multisite organisations such as pubs and retailers we review their fit-out specifications.
We have provided this service for dozens of public and private sector organisations, including factories, retailers, FE colleges and universities.
