Expert is a consultant that draws on local and international experience.

Utilising the very best in commercial and open source software tools clients can be provided with with expertise in Building Physics:
• Dynamic thermal simulation of HVAC and Passive building systems.
• Thermal bridging analysis as a route to improving heat loss performance of building facades.
• Daylight modelling to find the best way of reducing artificial lighting.
• Computational Fluid Dynamics, both inside (Ventilation) and outside (Pedestrian comfort).

These skills help inform on the most sustainable and cost effective decisions for new building designs. They can also help realise true value for re-fits and refurbishments.

UK legislation including Energy Performance Certificates and Building Regulations compliance is second nature. A substantial BREEAM and LEED portfolio – probably the two most significant environmental rating systems for buildings today - can also be demonstrated.
