Low Carbon Design Advice

This is a key activity of Ecoteric’s Energy Consultancy activities.

We have been engaged on this activity for many years  – link to case studies – new southern general hospital.   As experienced designers ourselves, we interact well with professional design teams to support and encourage low carbon design. Examples include:

  • Looking at U values and how they interact with heating and cooling loads to find an optimum solution

  • Advising on orientation and amounts of glazing, glazing types and natural ventilation solutions

  • Working with teams to develop optimum engineering solutions

  • Working through the detail of designs to find energy saving solutions

  • Advising on the implementation and interaction of renewables to buildings

We work from the major elements right down to detailed equipment selection on whole life carbon and energy principles.
