Sustainability

We have championed the sustainability of our designs for many years

We work with clients and contractors to maximise the thermal efficiency of building envelopes and to make them cost effective to run and comfortable to live in. We are able to integrate issues of concentrating on the building fabric with passive star design principles and where necessary the inclusion of renewable technologies.

Our work on sustainability has included training all our staff in the use of SAP software for productive energy performance on new buildings and selected staff qualified to work on existing buildings. We have several qualified Code for Sustainable Homes Assessors and regularly provide their services on our own architectural projects.

Research has been carried out with Cambridge University on natural ventilation strategies. We have developed an exemplar energy efficient refurbishment of a hard to heat terrace in conjunction with Manchester City Council and Mosscare Housing Ltd.

We are now looking at development of projects to Passivhaus standards, with one scheme up to feasibility stage, and one of the Directors has attended the Passivhaus Designer’s Course.
