Optimum performance depends on getting each stage in a building’s life cycle right, from specification and design, through construction and, ultimately, to operation. Often there is apparent disconnection between stages or priorities may change or strategies may veer off in different directions. The building sciences team at RSK understands buildings as systems.
Working on projects as diverse as airports, eco-homes, shopping centres, hospitals and high rises, RSK has helped its clients to cut carbon footprints and costs, achieve regulatory compliance and raise green credentials by advising on energy efficiency and sustainability issues in the built environment.
Our in-house specialists can provide air leakage consultancy and testing services (Part L); insulation continuity and thermal performance analyses (FEA); acoustics consultancy and testing (Part E); energy modelling (SBEM/EPC); and BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes assessments.
By drawing on the wider skills in RSK, the building sciences team can offer something at most stages of development, from pre-construction environmental impact assessments through as-built performance monitoring to strategies for reuse.
