Our Low Carbon Consultants use a holistic approach to assess building energy performance. We believe that all new buildings should be Net Zero Carbon, and we help our clients meet their sustainability targets. Sustainable practices are not only for new projects; we also relish working with clients to improve existing building stock.
We always work hard to ensure that every element of your project is lean (using less energy), clean (supplying energy efficiently), and green (using renewable energy).
Primarily, we utilise passive design techniques based on the principles of a ‘Fabric First’ approach. Through this, we invest the construction budget into the building fabric, instead of relying on renewable energy to offset consumption. The next step is to focus on making the building services installations complement the fabric and massing. Finally, our expertise in energy and carbon technology will help you to maximise your investment and get the most out of the funding available for your project.
As the industry has grown, our consultants have been there every step of the way, working on an array of cutting-edge projects, from solar thermal systems, to photovoltaics, to ground and air source heat pumps. We also have a wealth of expertise in providing relevant, applicable advice regarding biomass systems, as well as district heating, and combined heat and power systems.
With years of experience at the forefront of the market, we can support you through all stages of the building lifecycle. Our experts offer energy reports for planning applications, always complying with national and local targets, as well as helping you qualify for feed-in tariffs and renewable heat incentive payments.
Our energy statements and audits are grounded in sound engineering principles and our recommendations are always detailed and relevant.
We have an unrivalled understanding of the latest technologies and with our help, you can make a difference reducing both operating costs and carbon emissions.
