Building a new Building
Thinking through energy efficiency issues for a new building is very important. The planning and design stage is the best time to maximise energy efficiency opportunities. Whether it is compliance with government regulation or future proofing a long term asset.
Managing an Existing Building
Managing energy use in a building is a key part of operating a commercial/industrial building. It can involve meeting on-going compliance requirements or progressively introducing energy saving measures to contain the effect of rising energy costs.
Builders / Developers
Many new buildings now have “green” requirements which can challenge builders/developers in the delivery stage. Helping to interpret these requirements is critical at each step of the project if you are going to deliver to the client’s expectations and keep costs under control.
Architects / Designers
Designing for sustainability is now an integral part of the design process. Whether this is explicit or implicit there is a responsibility to look ahead and help the client future proof the building.
Facility Owners / Managers
A building is a long term asset and managing energy use in the building into the future is important to control costs and remain competative. It is also important to future tenants and owners who are in the market for sustainable buildings. In addition to market forces some buildings have energy efficiency compliance obligations.
