Successful projects rely on the integration of clear strategies from the outset and LEDA’s holistic approach provides a framework for sustainable design that can be followed through from feasibility to post-occupancy. Our specialist advice to clients and their project teams includes option modelling and cost-benefit analysis, particularly with regard to carbon emissions, comfort criteria and operating costs over the lifecycle. We work closely with architects on all aspects of a building’s design and relationship to site and climate; inputting on factors such as daylighting, solar control, natural ventilation and thermal mass. We provide full building services solutions, with drawings and specifications delivered to the highest quality in support of cost, construction and programme certainty.

We can provide:

  • Development of design strategies at feasibility stage
  • Design advice for low-carbon and zero-carbon building projects
  • Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) modelling
  • Overheating analysis
  • Thermal Bridge modelling (where required)
  • Full electrical and mechanical design services
  • Energy ratings (SAP and SBEM) and Energy Performance Certificates
  • Renewable energy system design
  • Energy audits and surveys and Carbon Footprint analysis
