Specialisms

Acoustics

Our acoustic engineers work with clients every step of the way, expertly weaving sound acoustic design into the very fabric of a building. This helps secure planning permission, avoids expensive retrofitting, and ensures the creation of quality space.

Air quality

Whether it’s a new housing development requiring point source assessments (including chimney, flue and stack), or changing transportation infrastructure needing traffic assessments, the ability to illustrate any impact on air quality is now a fundamental part of the planning process.

Building Performance Modelling

One of the most powerful design tools we have at our disposal is the ability to model the movement of light, air and energy in and around buildings before the form is set to create buildings that make the most of their environment.

Daylight and sunlight studies

A key requirement of planning will be an over-shadowing analysis – how a proposed development will impact daylight and sunlight on existing adjoining and adjacent buildings. Equally, for the comfort of building users, how can building design be optimised to maximise access to daylight and sunlight whilst minimising the risk of overheating?

Disposability strategies and records management

Our experienced nuclear technical consultants support producers of radioactive waste in the successful development of disposability cases for higher activity radioactive wastes where eventual disposal to a UK geological disposal facility is the intended management strategy.

Energy Capacity

We can help you unlock constrained sites and overcome capacity constraints; reducing demand and utilising on site generation to reduce connection costs and grid reinforcement charges.

Energy Cost Savings

Energy costs are on an upward trajectory. We focus our efforts to understand your energy demand profile.

Energy Decarbonisation

We will help you navigate through the evolving policy landscape to meet net zero goals through understanding suitable energy and carbon strategies that take account of the unprecedented changes happening to our energy distribution systems.

Energy Resilience

The decentralised energy market in the UK is undergoing rapid change and growth as our energy production moves more local. This drives efficiency but comes with a unique set of problems.

Energy Revenue

Our energy consultants help you create extra income and cost efficiencies from distributed energy solutions. Get the best return on investment from power generation, energy demand management, behind-the-meter, active network management and capacity trading.

Environmental assessments and sustainability

BREEAM, Passivhaus, WELL, LEED, Home Quality Mark, Green Star… Faced by a myriad of voluntary building standards and codes, as an architect, developer, investor or occupier, we design buildings that deliver a return on investment and help you comply with planning regulations.

Environmental management and assessment

With experience in both radiological and conventional environmental management, our nuclear specialists offer a broad range of technical and practical expertise to enable our clients to meet regulatory and legal requirements across the nuclear lifecycle.
