Skills and Services

Our team of Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Engineers have broad experience and we work on projects across multiple sectors, particularly in education, culture, heritage, housing and community.

engineering design

We design solutions for all the main building services:

  • Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Electrical Supply and Distribution
  • Lighting and Power
  • Hot & Cold Water Systems
  • Plumbing and Drainage
  • Fire Protection
  • Data Communications
  • Lifts

consultancy

We advise on new architectural designs and produce supporting documentation for planning applications to ensure that proposals comply with regulations and requirements. We also assess existing buildings’ performance, producing reports of energy and carbon emissions, and recommending strategies for improvement. Our consultancy services cover:

o Energy Statements and Reports
o SAP and SBEM Assessments of energy and carbon emissions
o BREEAM Assessments
o EPC and DEC certification
o Post Occupancy Evaluation

From our offices in London and Hertfordshire, we provide designs and consultancy services to create healthy, comfortable, and sustainable buildings.

energy & sustainability

We specialise in low energy, low carbon buildings, and offer expert advice on addressing the challenges of climate change in the built environment. Our engineers work closely with architectural and structural engineering teams, so that low carbon and renewable energy strategies can be incorporated into building designs. Our work also covers monitoring the environmental and energy performance of buildings, during design stages and following project completion.

passive design

Considering a building’s location, form, and material fabric, as well as the type and patterns of its occupancy, we aim to achieve safe and comfortable conditions without the use of energy-intensive systems. Our passive design strategies include insulation, sunlight energy and natural ventilation, and we also advise on architectural measures such as building orientation, ventilation openings, thermal mass, and daylight optimisation.

We design and advise for both new and existing buildings, including conversions, heritage and listed properties.

digital modelling

We use industry leading modelling software to analyse building performance and assess the potential to reduce reliance on energy-intensive systems. Using 3D simulations that incorporate real-world weather and daylight data, we establish solutions that are both cost and energy efficient for the end user.

renewables

Our engineers are experts in renewable energy systems including heat pumps, photovoltaics, solar thermal and biomass. We select the most appropriate mechanical and electrical systems for each project and support our clients in specifying renewable technologies that comply with current regulations, whilst meeting their own environmental policies and needs. We recommend long-lasting equipment that is cost and energy efficient, advising clients on their maintenance for ongoing value.

supervision & support

We supervise every project until completion to ensure the quality of building services installations and successful handover to our clients, and can also offer support with cost planning throughout the project timeline. Our small practice means that we can provide consistent communications and personalised support, tailored to client needs.

post occupancy evaluation

We offer Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) following the first year of a completed project’s occupancy. A POE is a valuable way of obtaining client feedback, ensuring that completed buildings perform energy efficiently in use, and making sure that systems are functioning as intended to meet the occupant’s needs.
