BREEAM Assessments

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) is the world’s most established and prominent method of assessing, rating and certifying the sustainability of buildings.

We have been successfully providing BREEAM assessments on a number of building types since 2009 when Anthony Hayes qualified as a BREEAM Assessor for Bespoke Buildings and Offices.

Energy Performance Certificates

Sam Abbas is our in-house CIBSE accredited Low Carbon Consultant and he has been providing EPC’s for various commercial properties as well as domestic properties since 2010.

3D Modelling

In addition to our standard CAD service AH Design provide a Building Information Modelling (BIM) service.  All of our engineers have received formal training in Autodesk Revit MEP 2016.

Lighting Design Consultancy

Our electrical services team has over 25 years experience in providing lighting design solutions to suit various building types from hospitals to museums and will work closely with the project architect and client to achieve a harmonious lighting design that meets both expectations and budgetary requirements.

Project Management

We pride ourselves in that our mechanical and electrical departments have the combined experience to offer project management of services led projects by applying the processes, methods, knowledge, skills and expertise of our Partners to achieve the project goals and objectives.

Value Engineering

Our team of engineers are experienced in the method of value engineering and can incorporate this into the design process ultimately either improving the function or reducing the cost of services to suit the individual requirements of our clients.

Feasibility Study

Our feasibility study service will help ascertain the technical and cost practicability of any proposed project by analysing the viability of the services element at the initial scope stage.

Condition Report

Condition surveys and report on the existing services within a building and recommendations for improvement can be undertaken by all of our engineers enabling our clients to make informed decisions at the outset of the project process.
