Improve Building Performance

Would you like to improve the performance of a building?

As sustainable design experts, we use IES Virtual Environment (IESVE) software to translate complex building physics principles and detailed dynamic thermal calculations into extensive and easy to understand technical information and visualisation.

We work alongside leading architects, building contractors and M&E engineers to reduce energy consumption and carbon output; increasing the overall sustainability of buildings.

We are highly competent in utilising a fast, accurate, sub-hourly, thermal simulation suite that can model new and existing buildings of any size and complexity.

The IES platform allows cross-team collaboration from concept design to operation. It embeds energy and performance assessment across the entire building lifecycle; integrating performance analysis into the heart of the design process.

Whether you are enquiring as a contractor who requires assistance or directly as a client starting a new project, we are happy to assist you.
