Consultancy Services and Design
We take a holistic approach with regards to the integration of low carbon and renewable technologies for building services.
Some of the technologies that we are competent to include within our design are:-
- Heat Pumps
- Combined Heat & Power
- Solar PV
- Battery Storage
- Electric Vehicle Charging
The key for successful integration of low carbon and renewable technologies is to ensure that correct sizing of equipment occurs by energy usage modelling.
We are competent in understanding complex mechanical and electrical building services installations and are able to tailor the retrofitting and integration of renewables and low carbon technologies into these legacy building services and M&E systems. Examples are:-
- Replacing gas fire boilers and CHP with heat pumps
- Reducing grid electricity consumption through integration of solar PV and modernisation of lighting systems and introducing further energy conservation measures.
- Thermal and battery storage to optimise the size of low carbon and renewable technology.
- Gas Safe Systems
Avrenim and the RIBA plan of work 2020
