Building Services Engineering

Enabling environments to be vibrant and inspiring for people for the long term. We engineer for the human senses, creating controllable, comfortable surroundings for people, while respecting the need to reduce environmental impact. This empowers spaces to be interactive, measurable, maintainable, flexible, and adaptable. And that is the key to achieve longevity, relevance, performance and, ultimately value.

We focus on design strategies that uplift an environment and inspire creativity to flourish. They become unique, resilient, responsive places that can adapt to the future because we look ahead to the emerging trends shaping how we live, work and play. And all with the ultimate vision of allowing end users to operate, maintain and control their environment to suit their specific needs.

Our clients and architects are acutely aware of the positive influence our engineering has on their design and assets. We listen, consult, advise, and challenge from the outset. And in response to the climate crisis, we involve operational management strategies early on in the design process.

By building these strategies on the foundations of good design, operators are empowered to run their buildings efficiently and sustainably. We help them reach net zero and net positive carbon status, championing low energy and regenerative solutions. And this journey of positivity continues throughout the whole lifecycle and recycling of a built asset.

Spotlight on our work in practice

Holborn Viaduct

The development is targeting BREEAM outstanding, NABERS 5/5.5* and WELL Certified Platinum; fully utilising all-electric heat pumps and passive design measures, including natural ventilation. On site clean energy will be generated using 270m2 of PV area located at roof level and integrated into the façade. Retained foundations will help to reduce the scheme’s carbon footprint, with our experts conducted rigorous embodied and operation carbon analysis to accurately measure the whole-life carbon of the project.
