Additional Services Offered

Please see listed the additional services we can now offer.

Overheating Studies (CIBSE Guide A, BB101, TM52 and future climate predictions. Building Regulations Part O Calculations) - The term 'overheating' refers to discomfort to occupants caused by the accumulation of warmth within a building. It is considered to be a growing problem in the UK due to climate change, the urban heat island effect, electronic equipment and increasing amounts of glazing. We can provide design advice and reports to remediate overheating in schools (BB101), non-domestic buildings (TM52 and CIBSE Guide A) as well as future climate senarios usung weather data produced by Exeter University.

Sustainability / Feasibility Reports and Energy / Carbon Statements for planning - Many planning authorities now require a planning application to include a comprehensive Renewable Energy Feasibility Statement for a development. Due to the lack of a nationwide policy, feasibility studies will vary between Local Authorities. Many Local Authorities will require a reduction in Energy and many will require a reduction in Carbon. Different Local Authorities will also ask for different reductions, some will require a 10% reduction, whereas others may require a 20% reduction or more using renewable energy. We will liaise with the Local Authority to determine the planning requirements in the most effective way.

Load Calculations for plant sizing - Space heating and cooling loads for plant sizing using dynamic simulation modelling which captures the dynamic relationship between internal and external environments.
