Sustainable Design

How can we help you protect the environment?


Sustainability made easy

Sustainable Design starts with investigating your building’s design. We take what you have on paper and we use calculations and software to  work out if the building is as sustainable as it can be. This means sustainability for the whole life of the building.

Once we get an understanding of your building’s current sustainability performance, we use our calculations and software to produce a set of sustainability scenarios. These show a variety of theoretical improvements that can be made to the current designs, allowing you to select the most appropriate sustainable design that suits your objectives.
