We are unique in the market as a multi-disciplinary team who evaluate, optimise and improve the operational performance of all building types. This requires our engineers to develop a broad understanding of the factors that influence and impact building performance, including everything from building management and control systems, data analytics, mechanical and electrical systems, commissioning and occupational science, including post occupancy evaluation. Increasingly we are also asked to measure and control parameters to improve health and wellbeing.
