ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN (SUSTAINABILITY SERVICES)
At BBD ENGINEERING we work with the whole project team to balance our clients’ needs with context-driven ecological, social and economically sustainable solutions.
The early integration of sustainability can play a vital role in reducing business risk while maximizing market value through mechanisms such as improved indoor environment, designing interactive spaces and reducing operational energy consumption.
The importance of developing a well-considered energy strategy cannot be overstated. This strategy sets out the roadmap for the entire project and ultimately the success of the strategy will translate into success of the building on practical completion and throughout its lifecycle.
Our Energy Assessments set out the strategy and demonstrate, via the approved calculation methodologies, how these will be achieved through detailed design and construction. Our approach focuses on identifying cost-sensitive and practical solutions that enable the sustainability goals of the project to be fulfilled.
It is our philosophy that sustainability and environmental design cannot be considered independently to the design of building services systems. The integration of appropriate passive measures, active systems and renewable and low energy technologies are inherent in the successful design and delivery of sustainable buildings. We believe that close attention to the implementation of the design throughout construction is essential to eliminate the problems typically associated with the integration of building services and sustainability aspirations within todays buildings.
