Energy and Sustainability Strategies
We offer feasibility studies, options appraisal, system design and project management for energy efficiency and low-carbon and renewable energy installations on both pre-planning and full-project engagements.
Our strategies for new developments and existing buildings start with demand reduction measures and detailed load assessments. We assess not only energy quantity but quality, and carefully match demand with renewable energy generation estimates, storage requirements and traditional energy sources. Low-carbon energy networks are often developed as a means to balance loads and maximise carbon savings and financial returns. At the building scale, the energy supply is integrated with efficient system and passive design strategies.
Through this integrated approach, we help future-proof developments in a landscape of changing energy prices, legislation and market demands, towards a post-carbon economy.
Our approach to sustainability in the built environment is one that considers environmental impacts as related components of a broader strategy, regards waste as a potential resource and tackles the social and economic implications of development. Be it for buildings or masterplans, new or existing, we create integrated strategies to future-proof developments and reduce their environmental impacts.
Our services include feasibility studies, options appraisals, technical systems design and strategic reviews. We see certification as a result of a strong sustainability strategy, not just the end goal. We also act as sustainability champions within larger teams, working closely with developers, architects and engineers to improve the environmental credentials of the project.
