Service Overview​

Areas of Work

Building Simulation Modelling

A reconstruction model of a building using a computer programme to reflect the structure and behaviour of the building over time to analyse key performance indicators without cost-intensive measurements.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

A collaborative platform and shared knowledge resourcing process to generate and manage the digital representations of a building.

Contract Management

Negotiating the terms and conditions of a contract, ensuring compliance, documentation, and agreements during the entire building stages of a project.

Condition Reports

As known as a survey, a condition report is an independent assessment of the conditions of a building. It can include structural state, maintenance concerns and the state for building repair.

Detailed Design Specifications

All documents outlining the system, design, development, production, installation, integration, implementation or maintenance, including the technical requirements, system specifications, electrical and mechanical schematic diagrams and programming.

Dilapidation Reports

A highly detailed survey and report into the current condition of a building’s physical structure and systems and issues relating to its furnishings and general wear and tear.

Display Energy Certificates

It is designed to show the energy performance of a building based on the actual energy consumption for the previous year and must be renewed annually.

Energy Performance Certificates

The rating scheme summarises the energy efficiency of a building or device. It shows the energy efficiency rating from A- very efficient to G- Inefficient.

Negotiations with Public Utility

Discuss and negotiate the use of public resources such as water, electricity and gas to meet the specific requirements and regulations for a building.

Part L Calculations

This is to determine the heat loss of a project, working out the fuel cost and CO2 emissions.

Performance Specifications

A preliminary document detailing a building project’s functionality, technical information and measurements.

U Value Calculations

Calculations used to compare how the use of different materials, or thicknesses of materials, can impact the overall thermal performance of a building.

Designing for the Future

Innovation in Building Design Solutions

We use industry-specific software combined with high-standard building solutions and the safety and security of team members and project data.

We Are Accredited

What we don’t have is what you don’t need. We are accredited throughout the industry.
