Environmental Sustainability

We are leaders in Sustainable Building Services design and we seek out creative low carbon solutions as part of every project brief.

As a Practice, we have always espoused and promoted the implementation of benign and sustainable solutions with minimum life cycle environmental impact. This was recognised by ACEI in that we have twice received the President’s Award for Innovation. Our first award in 1981 was for ESB Sportsco Pool, which combined ozone water treatment with heat pump technology. In 2002, we received the award for integrated displacement ventilation at Shannon Airport Extension. Major energy savings have been achieved with very high comfort conditions maintained. The entire design including daylighting was validated using computer simulation.

As Building Services Engineers, our role in sustainability starts with the site selection, site orientation and building façade development.

Together with our high-tech BIM partners in BIM&Scan.com, we can provided the highest quality 3D modelling for high level sustainable development planning. We can help Clients, Architects and Quantity Surveyors before the planning stage of a project.

Our energy analysts use a suite of LEED and BREEAM modelling tools to optimise the return on commercial projects with lower construction and maintenance costs, minimise the energy and environmental impacts of our projects and to optimise the client’s return on investment.
