We are active in Research and Development covering a number of issues including renewable energy, post occupancy evaluation and development of bespoke in-house analytical software tools.

The design complexity of buildings continues to increase due to growing demand on sustainability and regulatory frameworks together with high expectations placed on assessment from the early stages in a project’s design life.

Whilst our approach begins by considering the architectural design and material as an energy reducer, we equally look to reduce technical system complexity through innovative thinking.

We have funded our own research and development into software as well as participating in EU and UK funded research projects, exploring the potential for renewable energy and developing software for predicting building performance. This inspires our staff to be creative and apply our research work first hand.
