For the second year running, XCO2 have won Building Consultancy of the Year in the ‘up to 50 employees’ category at the CIBSE Building Performance Awards! Thank you CIBSE for this incredible award and a massive well done to the entire XCO2 team!
“XCO2 stood head and shoulders above the other finalists in this keenly fought category. Judges said that while all the shortlisted entries showed an incredible focus on net zero carbon it was XCO2’s ‘inciteful and thorough’ entry that convinced the judges that it was best in class.
Describing XCO2 as good example of a small developing practice, judges called the entry clear and complete.
XCO2 is an engineering and environmental consultancy formed in 2008 with offices in London and Singapore. The firm’s primary focus is to eliminate CO2 emissions in the built environment by providing innovative and robust solutions to clients.
The firm offers net zero services on all projects and is willing to share its knowledge by delivering multiple CPDs to architects, housing associations, local authorities and other engineering disciplines.
It has recently worked on five net zero housing estate retrofit projects that will see 500 social homes across London become zero carbon, resulting in dramatically reduced energy bills at a time where fuel poverty is so prevalent.
Working together and building relationships are two of the company’s cultural values and demonstrate the importance of collaboration. The firm has worked with a wide array of stakeholders such as supporting local communities, charities and social enterprises to bring about energy savings and improvements.
XCO2 believes that cross-team bonding and internal communication is key with staff going into work 2-3 days a week, to reflect that.
Its monthly newsletter keeps everyone informed on staff and office news, and social events. The monthly company-wide meetings are an opportunity to bring the London and Singapore offices together to share successes and lessons learnt.”
