My approach to engineering is to look at the building and its services as a single entity; rather than viewing the different services as unconnected from the building as a whole. 

The form and fabric of the building can have a significant impact on the efficiency of the services, so it is imperative that they are not designed in isolation. I produce buildings with comfortable environments that people love to visit, work or live in.

This means integrating the services so that they complement the architecture and structure. As well as making them simple and easy to use for the building’s future occupants.

For our understanding and knowledge in these areas to have the greatest impact, we should be involved in projects from the very start. In this way we can work with the architect to develop the best building possible for our client.
