Net-Zero Carbon Design, Modelling & Analysis
The UK Government has set out clear targets to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2050, A large part of this is the reduction of carbon emissions in residential and commercial buildings. The London Plan and other local plans set out by local authorities across the country are implementing net zero carbon targets to meet the targets set out. Through thermal modelling and a wealth of experience, we are able to produce net-zero carbon designs for projects across the country to meet the requirements.
Implementing this approach will enable your development to achieve the required targets set out in the Local Plan for the area, but also allows a thorough design to be completed to ensure that the proposed building has been designed to be cost-effective, low carbon and operating to high levels.
Whilst adopting a fabric first approach, our initial steps will be to ensure that the proposed development is minimising both energy use and carbon emissions through the design of the building/s. This step is a great way to review the design to ensure that once complete the building works efficiently and also provides a good level of thermal comfort.
Within the process, we will also review the feasibility of low and zero-carbon technologies to determine site-specific possibilities of achieving the criteria and again minimising the overall energy usage of the proposed site.
As well as the above key stages, we will also perform intricate analysis of several factors, including schedules, thermal comfort, overheating and much more to develop a design for the site that will achieve the required criteria but also produce a well balanced, high performing site.
