Here at Fewer Harrington & Partners, we recognise that ongoing energy costs are a significant portion of any project, contributing towards up to 50% of the total cost of ownership of a building over a forty-year life.
Our role in sustainability starts with the site selection, site orientation and building façade development. We will bring the full weight and experience of our in-house computer simulation and modelling software to establish a precise computer model of the proposed developments at the earliest possible opportunity. Computer modelling carried out in close association with architectural development will give secure predictions of the building performance. Issues which will be evaluated in the modelling include orientation, façade design, glazing selection, external shading, passive and active solutions to achieve the best sustainable design solutions.
