  • Estimating building demands using available information and data, where information is not available using relevant benchmarks such as BSRIA and CIBSE to determine demands or modelling buildings using Thermal modelling software (IES)
  • Sizing renewable technology plant based on the demand curves created and commercial considerations using Excel spreadsheets and software such as Energy Pro
  • Undertaking bespoke Energy Conservation Measures (ECM) modelling using nationally recognised methods that can be measured and verified under Energy Frameworks such as RE:Fit or NDEE
  • Preparing summaries detailing modelling outputs for use in RIBA Stage 2 & 3 design reports.
