We have demonstrated practical experience, competence, and proven expertise in evaluating state-of-the-art building energy-efficiency technologies and managing sustainable design assistance projects. We are experienced with hourly simulation software programs and industry-accepted engineering methods for evaluating energy performance and are fully capable of performing all aspects of whole-building energy analysis associated with completing sustainable design projects. In addition, we can provide quality assurance review of analysis methods, simulation results, and project deliverables. We are a team player willing to contribute to the mechanical design methods, knowledge, and capabilities and have a strong background in the design and operation of mechanical heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as a knowledge of the specialized HVAC requirements of highly technical facilities.. A holistic understanding of whole building and mechanical systems and a strong commitment to state-of-the-art design innovations are essential.
Working closely with Architects, Engineers and other members of the professional team is especially important in the development of carbon neutral buildings, so that the built form can be optimized in relation to the passive and active systems to be employed. Our early involvement enables us to make a constructive contribution based on considered analysis of the available options and a detailed understanding of the client’s requirements. Building facades make a major contribution to the overall aesthetic and technical performance of a building. We have specialists in building envelope technology and environmental engineering – all with extensive experience in consultancy.
Leading edge software forms part of our toolbox, allowing us to analyze ideas and ‘what if’ scenarios with virtual models of any building. Successfully applying these tools to deliver optimum results in the context of real construction projects is our trademark. This is achieved by experienced design engineers making use of modern software tools, rather than software specialists looking for applications.
