Pre-Assessment Estimators & Sustainability Reports
As part of the initial design process, pre-assessment estimators or initial assessments are vital to guide and develop projects. More and more Local Planning Authorities are requiring such assessments or sustainability reports to support planning applications. Using our in-house expertise, we are able to develop robust documentation to justify proposals allowing the planning process to conclude.
Sustainability for your home
Whether you are looking to improve an existing house, convert an existing building or create a new home from scratch, sustainability can and, in our opinion, should be considered from the outset. There are numerous certification and assessment routes, however our approach is not that of a tick-box exercise but listening to clients thoughts and needs and advising of options to make the best possible project, whether they are light touches to an existing house, for example upgrading a boiler system with a heat transfer and solar hot water panel, higher thermal performance of the structure all the way through to Carbon Neutral or houses that require no traditional heating systems.
