A Low Carbon Office Design for Commercial

About This Project

Our brief

Building physics consultants for this new insurance company head office.

What we did

We assessed various building service strategies plus thermal comfort and energy performance. We did this using dynamic simulation modelling, which enables us to simulate energy flows around and through a building, so we can predict its thermal environment and energy consumption. We also used computational fluid dynamics, which involves the detailed analysis of airflow patterns, heat distribution and contaminants, within external and built environments.

Benefits we delivered

We reduced capital cost, improved thermal comfort and lowered energy consumption (the performance certificate rating was A24).
