Consultancy

main content

Our consultancy services to industry include modelling studies in support of design decision-making, laboratory tests to characterise the behaviour of new products, and field monitoring to determine the performance of buildings and new/renewable energy plant in use.

Issues that may be studied include, but are not limited to, the following.

Energy assessments

  • Heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting of buildings
  • Energy supply and demand at the local or regional level

System simulation

  • Critical component sizing within hybrid energy supply systems
  • Control system performance prediction

Daylighting

  • Prediction and assessment of utilisation approaches
  • Glare avoidance

Renewable energy scheme deployments

  • Grid and building-integrated systems design
  • Passive technologies for demand reduction

Air flow studies

  • Natural ventilation approaches and heat recovery
  • Indoor and outdoor air movement and emissions

Advanced materials/systems.

  • Advanced glazings and insulation products
  • Photovoltaic components integration
  • Equipment assessment (heat pumps, combined heat and power, wind turbines etc.)

Comfort and health assessments

  • Thermal, visual and acoustic
  • Indoor air quality

Condensation studies

  • Surface and interstitial
  • Mould growth alleviation
