About masterplanning advice

In 2003, we ‘wrote the book’ on embedding sustainability principles in urban design and residential masterplanning – drawing on our thorough understanding of how buildings work (particularly in energy and water consumption terms) to provide a set of enduring, realistic, and workable design guidelines for liveable cities. Since then, we have incorporated new disciplines – strategic embodied carbon and whole-life carbon advice; sophisticated modelling of light and air to optimise designs for differing environmental conditions across any given site; wellbeing assessments that put inhabitant comfort ahead of basic regulatory requirements – to provide masterplanning advice for residential, higher education, and mixed-use schemes of all kinds. 

As MEP engineers and sustainability consultants, we have a deep understanding of the built environment and the construction sector – an understanding that allows us to help our clients successfully navigate, anticipate, and respond to changing regulatory landscapes over the long timeframes associated with masterplanning.
