A well-designed building will use natural sources for heating, cooling and ventilation to reduce energy consumption.

These passive design strategies include:

• Maximising Natural Ventilation
• Night-time cooling
• Enhanced thermal performance
• Enhanced solar shading and glazing specification
• Phase change materials
• Use of sustainable or recycled materials
• Maximising daylight

Our highly skilled and experienced team develops our sophisticated model of your building, to understand how each of these passive design strategies will affect the occupier’s comfort, as well as energy usage and therefore carbon emissions.
