Our work is characterised by a strong emphasis on making well designed, energy efficient, and sustainable buildings.

51 Clive Place  (shown opposite) is a good example. We thermally modelled the existing building in Ecotect and checked the calculated energy consumption against the actual consumption for a typical year. Then we modelled some changes until we got to the standard that we'd decided to achieve, and now 18 months later we can see how accurate that modelling was.

We estimated £500, (for all the space and water heating, appliances, cooking, and lighting), and in the first twelve months the electricity bill was £480.

The Solar panels on the roof will also earn us about £250 a year from the Feed-in-Tariff for the next 20 years, and for another 6 years we'll earn over £1000 a year from the Renewable Heat Incentive because we installed an Air Source Heat Pump.  

We can do the same for your building, existing or proposed, large or small, and use the computer modelling to choose the most cost-effective way of achieving the energy standard that you want and how much is enough.
