Our building physics experts carry out detailed analysis of climate and environment that inform energy saving strategies, while ensuring highest levels of comfort and wellbeing. We use industry leading analytical software and in-house parametric modelling tools to optimise building performance.
Our environmental design analysts perform dynamic thermal modelling to optimise the performance of the building envelope. The team provides guidance for architects and engineers to accurately inform the selection of HVAC systems, plant sizes and identify the feasibility of renewable technologies.
From the inception of a project, we work closely alongside the design team to develop bespoke sustainable strategies that provide design guidance and improve the environmental, economic and social performance of each project.
The team’s fluid dynamics specialists carry out wind analysis to help develop building massing that ensures outdoor comfort and safety, and dynamic internal air flow simulations for natural ventilation and HVAC systems development. Our studies also cover fire propagation simulations, air pollution dispersion and rain shadow analysis.
Our environmental analysts assess solar exposure and explore different massing, formal and shading strategies to find the right balance between an optimally daylit environment and a glare free space.
In addition to developing bespoke sustainability KPIs for individual projects, our team’s expertise covers the application of international benchmarking tools to measure and gauge a development’s sustainability performance. These assessment tools include LEED, BREEAM, WELL Building Standard, GSAS, China Green Building Standard, and Living Building Challenge.
