Energy

In some places in the world, people don’t have electricity.  Those of us lucky enough to have lighting and heating at the flick of a switch have a responsibility to use our energy as efficiently as possible. Throughout the life of a building we can help you to be responsible about the energy it uses.

In the early design phase

We can model the building to maximise passive solar design, daylighting and an energy efficient envelope.

When the the design is complete

We can model the building to establish energy consumption targets

When the building is complete

We can assist in the commissioning and monitoring, to make sure that the building is achieving the targeted energy consumption

When the building is existing

We can audit the energy consumption of the building and identify consumption and cost savings.  In office buildings and hotels we use NABERS to benchmark the building.
