Environmental Design

Model Environments provides support to design teams to create low energy buildings that work as much as possible with the climate and on-site resources. This requires a thorough site analysis early in the project. Using our expertise and employing simulation techniques where necessary, we work with architects, contractors and consultants to develop their designs into sustainable, low energy buildings.

Each project is addressed from first principles. We have written construction guides, energy strategies, sustainability statements, masterplans and policies for spaces and places ranging from single dwellings to the city of Edinburgh.
