Unlock the potential of your new building


Early decisions made before equipment and staff move in can make a huge difference to the energy-efficiency and workflow of your company.  Many of the most useful works need to be carried out in a safe, empty space.


These energy-saving actions have a financial benefit.

We will be pleased to visit the building with you, even before you commit to purchasing it.  You might just want to use us as a free sounding-board and we're happy to make suggestions.

Energy efficiency

We know payback-time / ROI will influence any upgrades you're considering.
We can help you evaluate these figures.

This means you'll be in a better position to prioritise works and decide what to carry out prior to moving date.

As you'll own the building you'll have the option to carry out substantial upgrades to the building with long-term benefit to your operation and the potential future sale value. These might need detailed cost/benefit analysis.

Guiding your funding options

For 11 years​ we've been helping building-owners to access grants and loans (some of them have been at 0%). We stay up-to-date with the latest ways to soften the capital costs of upgrades. 

Layout for energy and productivity


Our qualified Industrial Designer is useful in helping to review the location of items like process-equipment, loading doors and racking to allow you to optimise the workflow while reducing needs for energy. For example siting all seated work in one area allows localised radiant heating instead of potentially needing to heat the entire space which can be very expensive and wasteful.

See our guides to saving heat in a building here.

People work better in better buildings

During our visit with you, we can discuss how your staff will need suitable heat, ventilation and light to work effectively. This of course means they can work faster and more accurately... 

..but it's also been shown that, for example, avoiding lighting that causes glare, flickers or causes walls to be in darkness can improve mood and vitality.

We think getting the work environment right can improve the levels of imagination, enthusiasm and client-care your staff can offer.
