We are able to provide specific advice and recommendations on aspects such as renewable energy options, Low Carbon Consultancy, sustainability and BREEAM.

Exceptional solutions are delivered seamlessly, making Built Environmental Consulting your trusted advisor and partner.

Recognising that each project and client is different, we are able to provide a tailored service to suit your needs.
At the core of any construction project, be it new build or refurbishment, is the need to ensure that the building is as sustainable as possible.
We have invested in the specialist skills to ensure that we are able to offer the advice, support and design services to help ensure that sustainability remains at the core of the design process.
We are able to offer Thermal Modelling using the latest 3D modelling solutions, Low Carbon Consultancy, BREEAM, Code for Sustainable Homes, Energy Certification (EPC), and Energy Display Certificates (DEC).
Ensuring that sustainability issues are considered at the inception of a project allow us to provide valuable input at the concept design of the building fabric, structure and envelope.

Lighting design is often not given the attention that it deserves in the design process.
Studies show the quality of light affects people in many different ways.
Office staff satisfaction and productivity can be positively affected by well-designed internal lighting solutions. Good lighting enhances the mood and desirability of spaces. It contributes greatly to people's sense of well-being.
Building owners and managers have the potential to add value, reduce costs and enhance performance through the application of good lighting.
We are able to offer specialist lighting design expertise to ensure it is embedded in the design process at a very early stage.
For further information please contact Carl Ackers.
With the adoption of BIM on Government procured projects we have committed to being able to provide our services to comply with BIM level II and provide our drawings in REVIT to support that process.
We are able to provide full integration for each data drop sequence:
We have formed relationships with innovative suppliers who are 'BIM aware' to enable us to develop our BIM library help ensure that the drawing and design information are as accurate and complete as possible.
The adoption of BIM and REVIT helps ensure that clash detection is achieved as soon as possible so that potential issues are not transferred to site during the construction process.
