Below is a list of our services which may be of use in meeting targets for BREEAM (the Code for Sustainable Homes), the Home Quality Mark, the Decent Homes Standard, WELL, LEED or just because you want to do a good job and help out our environment:
WHAT WE DO
Sustainable & Low Energy Design appraisal
A sustainable and low energy design report will assist in the design development and review process of your project by helping to determine the most energy-efficient and sustainable building solutions and construction methods.
renewable technology appraisal
We provide a complete detailed report advising you of the range of renewable energy supply technologies available to your building. Find out how renewable technology can help you do your bit for the environment, and the savings you could make on your energy bills.
Carbon, energy and sustainability analyses
We measure and analyse the carbon impact of a building, giving you a full report and strategies for ways you are able to improve your sustainability and become a more environmentally and energy efficient organisation.
Daylight and SUNLIGHT REPORTS
In addition to this, we also offer consultancy services for internal natural light assessments, rights to light technical studies, shading and glazing design and studies of photosynthetically useful daylight.
Life Cycle Assessments
A life cycle assessment is an analysis of the environmental impacts of a product across its entire lifecycle. We provide a full specific analysis and data so your sustainability strategy can be well planned out and so your project is compliant with all government regulations.
SAP, SBEM and thermal bridging calculations
SAP calculations are a requirement of the Building Regulations and are required for all newly built dwellings in the UK. SBEM stands for ‘Simplified Building Energy Model’. It is a government approved methodology that calculates the energy required to heat, cool, ventilate and light a non-dwelling.
Some interesting projects we were responsible for in previous incarnations include Edinburgh City Council’s Design and Construction Guide, daylight design for the National Trust HQ, the design and construction of Glastonbury climbing wall, a talk on school pupils and post occupancy evaluation given at the CIBSE Technical Symposium, developing the blueprint for Energy Action Areas in London, thermal simulations for MAXXI and bespoke eco-housebuilding via Wild Oak Carpentry.
