Building design advice
We offer free building design advice to support you in developing a low carbon solution.
We're able to offer free or subsidised consultancy throughout a project, depending on its size and potential carbon savings.
Note – we are happy to work with you on projects covering more than one building with the same specification to ensure that best practice is built into the project from the start. Our consultant will help you to maximise opportunities for specifying energy efficient plant and fabric.
Contact us to discuss your project.
For major building and renovation projects we can offer strategic advice.
Our aim for this service is to support projects and large buildings in achieving low and zero carbon developments and buildings. We engage with projects at a pre-design master plan stage and help inform early decisions such as:
• Site selection
• Energy strategy
• Including sharing energy with neighbours and the use of renewables
• Architectural and M&E design
• Including building orientation, passive design and material selection
Our services have been of great benefit to planners; clients; local authorities; governments; developers; and architects. We will work with you to make sure your project is strongly addressing each of these key issues:
• Business case
• Delivery team
• Project management review process (for future applications)
We also offer specific strategic design advice for data centres.
