Sustainable Engineering & Net Zero Carbon

Sustainable Engineering is the application of the principles of building physics to the built environment.

It is the study of how heat, air movement, moisture, climate and light interact with a building – understanding and controlling these areas to:

  • Optimise orientation.
  • Maximise passive ventilation performance.
  • Control solar gain.
  • Exploit thermal mass.
  • Optimise façade performance.
  • Maximise natural daylighting.
  • Carbon reduction.
  • Minimise the effects of climate change.

Ultimately, using building physics in engineering is about informing and influencing the design process so that the finished building provides the optimum internal environment for occupants in the most energy efficient and sustainable manner.

Services offered within the sustainable engineering team include:

  • Building Regulations Part L compliance (domestic and non-domestic buildings).
  • Thermal modelling to optimise thermal comfort.
  • Detailed energy strategies.
  • Predicted building energy calculations based on CIBSE TM54.
  • EPC’s.
  • Detailed daylight analysis (including climate based daylight modelling).
  • Dynamic simulations to optimise plant selections.
  • LEED Advice.
