Towards Greater Comfort, Sustainability and Energy Efficiency
The push for buildings to be more sustainable, for instance by making them carbon-neutral or even carbon-positive, is stronger than ever. From administrators and project developers to engineers, architects and contractors, everyone is keen to advance the energy transition. Yet, occupants still desire comfortable temperatures and fresh air. Balancing these demands can be complicated, but it's precisely in this complexity that we thrive.
There are numerous established methods to achieve sustainability, some new, some tried and tested. However, connecting buildings to heat networks or harnessing geothermal energy (for both heating and cooling) in tandem with heat pumps presents unique challenges.Questions arise: Can an old building be efficiently heated with 40-degree water instead of the conventional 80 degrees? Or how do you seamlessly integrate a cutting-edge ventilation system into an office with limited ceiling height?
For us, the more complex the situation, the better. We predominantly operate in settings with specific demands for temperature, air quality and hygiene, such as the pharmaceutical industry, data centres, offices, schools, healthcare facilities, hotels and laboratories.
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems striking the perfect balance between comfort, hygiene, energy consumption and operational costs.
Optimisations made during the design phase yield dividends during execution. Hence, we consistently design in 3D using Building Information Modelling (BIM) software. A significant benefit of 3D digital modelling is the early detection and resolution of potential design conflicts, such as intersecting pipes. We meticulously engineer down to the minutest details, ensuring that every tap and fire damper is accurately drawn and pre-checked. Only after this 3D model is approved do we commence actual work, effectively sidestepping potential errors and associated costs.
