Operating from offices in Barrow Upon Soar, Loughborough, Leicestershire, we are idealy situated to take on projects all over the UK and beyond.
New Build projects are becoming increasingly challenge from a services perspective as legislation ‘lowers the bar’ on energy consumption and carbon emissions a new building can produce / emit. As a services engineer, the challenge is to ensure compliance of a new build scheme, first and foremost. This is achieved through close consultancy with all parties of the design team from the Client, Architects, Planning Officers and Fire Engineers for example. Previous new build schemes cover many categories, from education, accommodation, offices and commercial / industrial.View projects
Previous work has ranged from small one/two classroom extensions to new Primary, Secondary and Further Education campus developments. Working for several County Councils and the Goverment Education Funding Agency (EFA), projects have been delivered using both traditional 2D and 3D drawing platforms.View projects
Previous schemes have ranged from 2/3-bed semi detached developments with mid-range specifications right up to 4/5 bedroom exclusive developments. These large developments are always very bespoke to suit a clients specific needs and requirements. Air conditioning, cinema and AV systems, whole house ventilation etc are all part and parcel of domestic Services Design.View projects
Non-domestic design experience is wide ranging and comprehensive. Developments have ranged from mid-level student accommodation to high-end residential developments for private sale. As well as the typical building Services, residential developments also require fire alarm, smoke ventilation, dry riser, cctv and security designs, all of which have been extensively designed and developed to fit new and existing structures and to comply with all relevant legislation.View projects
Refurbishment projects always carry their own unique hidden surprises. My attention to detail and inquisitive mind have found many problems , but ultimately solved them on multiple refurbishment schemes. Refurb projects generally cover office or accommodation projects and generally constitute a change of use of the property.View projects
As we are all aware, BIM is not just REVIT. BIM Level II stipulates the use of a single building model, shared and utilised by all disciplines within the design team. To this end we are able to offer skills in the form of REVIT based 3D drawing production and the knowledge and expertise of working with BIM compliant workflows and data drops throughout the design and construction phases of projects. Previous experience of BIM schemes have been in the education and commercial sectors.View projects
