We believe the best architecture comes from a systems approach to all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building.
Our team works together creatively from the start of a project. Architects and engineers combine their knowledge to devise integrated, sustainable design solutions.
We investigate ways to advance our sustainable design processes.
We delivers energy modelling to inform design direction, and we measure improvements to develop a sustainable vision for projects carried out by the practice.
We design efficient building systems that reduce energy and water consumption, enhance user comfort and ensure indoor environmental quality.
Many aspects are considered:
M&E Engineering, Health, Fire Protection, Vertical Circulation, Lighting Design, Building Physics and Sustainability.
Identify client’s Business Case and Strategic Brief and other core project requirements.
Outline planning application proposals for buildings design, building services systems, specifications and preliminary cost Information along with strategies.
Prepare tender packages with architectural, structural and building services information, specialist subcontractor design and specifications.
Build computer models of energy systems to analyse them using different scenarios to investigate various assumptions about technical and economic conditions.
Establish the heating, cooling and hot water loads of buildings to design optimised energy systems to meet those needs.
Identify where air leaks in or out of buildings and show thermal insulation defects with a thermal imaging survey of the building fabric.
Design and optimisation of electrical energy systems with low carbon and renewable energy technologies.
Design and optimisation of thermal energy systems with low carbon and renewable energy technologies.
Integrate technologies with a systems approach.
