Energy

Designing homes to conserve energy and use it efficiently, from sources that cause least environmental harm.

Electrical design

Electrical design is subject to a range of statutory and regulatory requirements aimed at ensuring performance and safety.

Power, communication and audiovisual requirements in buildings have changed rapidly in recent times and are likely to continue to do so.

By trying to anticipate future demands and planning for future access to key areas, building energy efficiency and sustainability can be ensured. Examples of planning include installing cableways, additional conduits or draw wires to roof, wall and underfloor spaces during construction or renovation and specifying trunking systems for solid construction to facilitate future changes.
