Buildings Energy & Carbon Strategy

Our consultants have delivered some of the UK’s most recognised buildings and are skilled in designing low-energy building systems and steering our clients and the wider design team to source low-embodied carbon building materials.

Sustainability First

The recent Climate Change Emergency targets and the route to Net Zero Carbon acknowledged by RIBA and the UKGBC have set new targets for the building industry in operational energy, embodied carbon of material use and potable water use savings.

Sweco is a ‘Design for Performance’ Delivery Partner with the Better Buildings Partnership. We are pioneering this approach in one of the first UK projects to provide real-life evidence and solutions to overcome the industry-recognised ‘energy performance gap’.

We work together with a range of multi-disciplinary teams to deliver engineering excellence for whole-project efficiency. In conjunction with our water specialists and our public health engineers, we combine our expertise in attenuation systems, innovative drainage solutions and wider infrastructure opportunities to seek significant water savings in buildings and within wider masterplan developments. We also work closely with our experts in engineering services and our environmental team, in harnessing the power of their digital modelling capabilities.

Close collaboration with our lifecycle analysis team means we’re also adept in full RICS assessment methodology, as well as our intelligent buildings (BMS & Smart) team, to deliver future-proofed solutions.
