We believe that in our architectural services we have a responsibility to make a positive contribution to environmental sustainability. Therefore we will always discuss with our clients the ways in which they can make their buildings more energy efficient. These efficiencies do not need to be expensive or difficult - in many cases they can be achieved with no change in lifestyle or working pattern and little or no additional cost if they are integrated into the design from the outset.
We always aim to make our designs as energy efficient as possible through considering first the simple and free factors, such as orientation to allow passive solar heating, and interaction with the site. In addition we are constantly on the lookout for new products, materials and services that can improve the energy efficiency of our projects, whether new build or refurbishment.
