Building Services

The scope and content of Building Services Engineering is often underestimated. With increased pressure to develop greener and more sustainable buildings, the role of the Building Services engineer has expanded even further.

In our experience, the fully collaborative and interactive architect/engineer relationship necessary to create a high standard of environmental building is seldom realised in practice. We consequentially seek to forge such alliances at an early stage, and build on established relationships.

We are not afraid to go beyond the tried and tested, and willingly adopt new technologies wherever applicable, going back to first principles and adopting radical deviations from the norm. However, any such proposals are fully model tested and simulated prior to final design detailing to test their operational viability.
