We consider life cycle factors within our design solutions not just for the engineering aspects of a project but also for the architectural form. We want to be part of a team that delivers on ‘sustainability’ by helping to set clear objectives and advise on the advantages of any improved material selection or choice of system over the life time of the building. In this way, a client can see how any initial additional cost may be recovered through the use of sustainable materials and system design options.
Low Energy Design
TAS thermal modelling software enables us to work closely with the project architect to challenge the building construction to enable the best thermal benefit from the building form. We maintain close links with the renewable energy industry to enable us to apply low energy technologies within our designs.
Renewable Energy Systems
We are experts in the application of CHP systems and have specific skills in the design of both reciprocating engines and gas turbines.
Combined Heat & Power Systems
We assess each project on its own merit and if required we can perform thermal analysis using TAS thermal modelling software. This enables us to get to work quickly at the project feasibility stage to access the specific thermal criteria of a particular building. TAS enables us to study the comparison of differing building forms and shapes and advise on the most energy efficient solution. This enables us to study the design of passive buildings, natural day lighting and passive systems.
