At Watkins Payne, we produce energy assessments tailored to your project, for all building types and uses. We aim to implement passive and low energy design technologies as far as possible to reduce baseline energy demand and CO2 emissions followed by the application of low and zero carbon technologies.
Strategies typically include using a highly efficient building fabric envelope with low air leakage together with high efficiency mechanical and electrical services. This generally means the use of high-performance glazing and improved building fabric thermal characteristics, along with low energy services solutions plus renewable technologies.
We adopt local and national planning policies and implement energy saving measures in relation to those policies. For example, The London Plan outlines an Energy Hierarchy with the following aims to inform the design, construction and operation of new developments:
