Sustainable Building Services
As well as traditional project management services we also can be employed to commission and/or witness the as-built services. Acting as the client’s agent we can verify the installation works. This may be monitoring a heat pump, measuring a solar PV system or verifying a ventilation system air flows.
Building Services - Construction Management
Generally employed where there is no main contactor and on a renewable project where the build team has no experience of the particular technology. In this case we can assist with the implementation, procurement and organising of the trades to help with the installation of the project.
We generally specialise in heat pump or solar PV systems as they may be unfamiliar to local contractors, whereas they are generally happy with installing the standard services on-site.
This can reduce time and costs in the long run.
"Discrepancies between design specifications and as-built are observed to significantly contribute to the gap in performance."

Independent Service Engineers
Traditionally heating/services were a standard work package handled by the trades and architects but buildings, regulations and the needs of the client have become more complex over time, and rightly so. Heating is integral to the comfort and well-being of your home/work and is only now been given proper consideration in the build. Also, often it can have the largest impact on operating cost for you in terms of bills and carbon impact over the long-term. In addition, there are a multitude of options available with renewable technologies in a fast-changing market. There can be a considerable cost benefit to have input from specialist independent building service engineers at several stages.
