Never before has the role of the building services engineer been so integral a part of the construction industry.
The early concepts for the design of buildings provide fundamental opportunities to reduce energy consumption, improve the well-being of the occupants and optimise construction value. For this reason our staffing structure is biased toward more senior personnel to ensure that these opportunities can be captured early on and driven through the design process – There will always be one of our senior management team involved in every project we undertake.
Our team-working approach starts from our first involvement. We input into all aspects of the project where we believe we can add something and we’re not afraid to get our felt pens out to start the process of space and volume integration into the architecture.
We actively promote the interrogation of services/fabric performance to achieve the optimum solution using tools such as dynamic thermal modelling. We have a commitment to low carbon solutions, employing Low Carbon Consultants and our team of over 48 has capabilities to provide support for all sizes of projects.
It’s not all about design either. A significant part of our workload is the provision of professional services to the property market. Advice on building acquisitions, dilapidations, maintenance strategy and EPCs requires experience and expertise. Again, our more senior staffing structure allows us to service this market with the appropriate people.
Information is our ‘product’ and each of our engineers, admin team and support staff has a cultural mind-set of checking prior to issue.
From our offices in central Manchester and Liverpool, we have excellent access to clients and design teams, both in the North West and beyond.
