There are many benefits and motivations for designing
new buildings to have very low operational energy demands
and carbon dioxide emissions. These range from a desire
for low energy bills, reducing environmental impact and
portraying a green 'eco-conscious' image to simply
complying with the ever increasing pressures of Building
Regulations and Planning Legislation.
Whatever the motivation CHB Sustainability have the
experience, qualifications, knowledge and tools to advise
on the most appropriate and cost effective energy efficient
design measures and energy strategy to achieve your goals.
We can provide one-off advice or work closely with the
design team to provide the know-how, computational
modeling, calculations and designs required to minimise
the energy requirements for all type of buildings from a
passive design eco-minimalist dwelling to a high-tech
CHB Sustainability can advise on development layout and orientation to maximise solar gain, calculate U-values and construction details to minimise thermal losses , calculate daylight factors and provide lighting designs.
Using SAP, SBEM, PHPP (Passive House Planning Package) or full dynamic thermal analysis we can model all types of development proposals and optimise the design in order to reduce energy demand and carbon dioxide emissions whilst maintaining occupant thermal comfort.
Please contact our team to discuss how we can support the design of your low energy building project.
