A good building is simple to create, operate, adapt and ultimately remove; it’s cost-effective over its lifecycle; it respects its environment; and it is appropriately functional.
Every building has a role to fulfil – for working, playing, making journeys, learning, healing… for living. Each function has is own technical requirements. But human health and happiness also have a significant bearing upon a building’s performance and success.
Engineering involves striking a balance between science and art and it is the harmony between the technological and artistic aspects that helps inform our approach. We collaborate with architects and developers from the earliest phases of a project, providing leading edge solutions to help realise their imaginative and ambitious aspirations.
We are committed to improving whole-life financial, environmental and social performance of built environments that combine comfort, function and beauty, all while remaining efficient and future-proof.
The fast-moving nature of sustainability means that there are constantly changing technology, financial and policy issues which offer new opportunities for clients in their search for the right sustainability solution. We have exceptional capabilities when it comes to transferring policy and knowledge across borders and nations.
Our building consultancy expertise is sought to influence all developments – from single buildings to whole communities and cities, globally. By drawing on our expansive knowledge, technological capability and integrated approach, we provide solutions that optimise all elements of the form and function of any building.
