What we do
Solutions for the built environment
Services for BREEAM. LEED, GRIHA and other standards
Tools and expert analysis to improve return on investment
We provide the essential tools, knowledge and answers, that help our clients assess the many design, specification and operation alternatives in order to realise a project that is value for money, good for the owner, occupier and the planet. Our services are based on sound science and rigorous assessment and designed to encourage a holistic viewpoint.
Life Cycle Costing
We specialise in the development of Life Cycle Costing (LCC) models to assess financial cost of acquisition, operation and disposing of a building system, whole building or multiple buildings.
LCA and Whole Life Carbon
We provide expert services for organisations wishing to reduce embodied carbon in buildings. We provide life cycle assessments of projects, using LCAs to reduce impacts and develop low carbon designs.
We provide security needs assessments for projects to ensure that security and safety is taken into account at the early stage. We can also provide enhanced SABRE assessments.
We help clients design schemes with solutions that will help reduce the probable impact of climate change on its performance and durability. Our consultancy creates localised recommendations based on the unique characteristics of the scheme.
Durability and Resilience
We help create projects which are designed with durable materials and are less prone to deterioration and require fewer repairs and maintenance across their lifecycle.
A pre-demolition or pre-refurbishment audit is an opportunity to quantify material waste from demolition to maximise circular economy performance. Our audit quantifies the material waste and identifies opportunities for recycling and cost-savings.
We conduct Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) to help clients understand the actual performance of their occupied schemes relative to the intended in-use performance, creating an objective, data-based view of the building that can be used for performance optimisation and design lessons.
We can provide circular economy statements for projects, to demonstrate how a development, will incorporate circular economy measures into all aspects of the design, construction and operation process.
