Our building services engineering consultancy is led by LEDA’s commitment to sustainable building design. Our approach focuses on using fewer resources to create healthy buildings that are aesthetically striking, welcoming and environmentally considerate.
Why should you work with building services engineers?
Building services are the heart and central nervous system of a building making it vital to design and install systems which promote easy maintenance and extend the life of a building.
Increasingly, quality standards of buildings are at the forefront of design and engineering considerations with measurements such as the WELL Building Standard dedicated to promoting buildings that enrich the lives of occupants.
This is where the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital engineering by experienced building services engineers can push your project from good to exceptional. In addition to BIM, the increase in digital design and engineering provides a higher level of visibility across all of a buildings’ services, how they integrate and work with each other. This enables seamlessly coordinated fabric, structure and services to deliver the best experience for occupants and facilities maintenance staff.
Why choose us for building services engineering?
Our design process starts with the client, so we fully understand how the building is required to function.
We work collaboratively with the client and other members of the design team to use high fabric thermal efficiency to reduce heating and cooling requirements.
We design holistically considering how passive strategies such as daylight and natural ventilation can shrink the building services needed.
We support our clients by clearly communicating the benefits of systems including renewable and low carbon technologies, supported by calculations to show how these meet expectations.
We apply lean design, using the minimum equipment to achieve the desired outcome – for example avoiding oversizing utility supplies, cables, pipework, ducts and plant equipment.
We draw broad expertise into the project including standards from other countries, intelligent application of engineering and fundamental physics.
We have access to a wide network of specialists to incorporate particular aspects such as audio-visual systems and acoustic modelling as required and fully coordinated with other aspects of the building.
Can we help you?
We know building services engineering covers a huge number of different technical aspects and systems. Due to this complexity we find an initial conversation is the best way – for you and us – to understand how we can help.
