These are the fundamental principles behind our work in the built environment and what makes our Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) team get out of bed each day. We believe in striving for simplistic passive solar design as a foundation on all projects in preference to high tech bolt-on ‘ESD Initiatives’ wherever possible. The use of modern technology should be to complement excellent design, not to mask oversights of the architecture or services engineering.
Our team use a range of analytical techniques and dynamic simulation packages to provide rapid technical insight into the predicted operation of our projects. This allows informed changes to be made early in the design phase to optimise performance whilst the design is still fluid.
