The Focus

We have developed simple services with the focus on designing for install, commissioning and use.

As Passivhaus consultants our input has been most notable on the glazing design, where we have helped balance heat loss, overheating risk and daylight design.

The architects are Riches Hawley Mikhail and we have worked with GreenGauge on the building services.
