From the developer’s commercial aims, the architect’s passion for the integrity of their design, or the engineer’s focus on their selection of approach, we are as ambitious for your development as you are.
To your development, we bring insight from our involvement in framing regulations and new perspectives from our self-funded research and development. From concept, we earn our place in an integrated team by listening well and through the insight and experience we contribute. We understand the many disciplines in a team and work to make these interfaces effective and as free from compromise as possible.
Using state-of-the-art wind tunnels, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and custom software, we are free to recommend the best approach for your project. We are ISO 9001 assured, giving you complete confidence in the accuracy of our processes, data and reports. The integrity of our work is known and recognized, making our inclusion in your team a valuable endorsement of the project.
Our experience in research and application of wind engineering techniques and wind tunnel testing dates back to the 1940’s. Since then we have continued to develop through continuous investment in Research & Development, advanced technology and innovation.
Designing risk out and sustainability in
Design conservatism, pedestrian discomfort, thermal discomfort, stack effects: these are not the only type of risk we help you mitigate. Our Systematic Risk Management and Design for Safety services give you a valuable way to manage the risks of project overruns and budget overspends, as well as safeguarding the environment and the health and safety of personnel involved in delivering your project.
With a drive towards building with a low carbon footprint, our engineers provide a wealth of experience, supported by proven tools and models, to advise on sustainable planning, design and certification.
Today successful stadia are destinations in their own right. Our understanding of wind flow relates not just to the structure, but also customer comfort, acoustics, heating and ventilation, even ball flight.
Innovation and striking architectural design are key to modern airport design. With airports acting as commuter hubs, the ability to accommodate future sustainable growth, shopping, attractions and leisure facilities are all key to modern airport design.
The commercial imperatives to value engineer your building without compromising integrity, maintain project momentum and achieve planning consent make accurate, reliable data and advice essential.
We help promote satisfying and safe environments and spaces for new urban populations, identifying the impact of the master plan on the environment and the microclimate of building complexes.
We help assure bridge designs with their local wind environment, allowing designers to exploit lighter, composite materials to deliver architectural value.
When the containing of hazards is high priority, it’s important to assess the associated risks and mitigate against them at early design.
