While the fundamental structure of a building will remain the same during its life cycle, the internal layouts and systems must evolve to meet changing occupant needs, technological advances and market demands.
In the Plan phase, we help you to future proof your building and, when managing it, we make sure it is operating to its full potential and can adapt to change with minimum disruption.
We also ensure you’re meeting the many legal and regulatory obligations for health and safety, insurance risks, business continuity, energy efficiency and climate change.
Operating a building as effectively as possible requires monitoring, support and up-to-date best practice knowledge. Some of the most dynamic and critical elements of the building are the engineering systems.
We can mitigate the risk of failures or defects affecting utility supplies, heating, cooling, ventilation or lifts and escalators because we understand the impact they can have on occupant satisfaction and business continuity. We’re here to safeguard your business and deal with issues before they pose a problem.
A building’s engineering systems have a shorter lifespan than its fabric, so their future replacement needs to be considered within the initial design phase.
Sustainable buildings give you many advantages. When a building’s operating and maintenance requirements are explored during the preliminary design phase, we can create improved working environments which lead to higher staff productivie.
