Core to the work of the practice for 2 decades has been respect for the environment . Minimising Natural resource depletion is Key. Everything we have worked on has pushed the temporal boundaries of Energy provision and performance, We start with climate and tune the buildings envelope and systems to anything that will enhance performance and reduce Energy consumption. Ground Sourcing heat, Earth sheltering and passive solar enhancement are base line strategies for the practice, We detail Buildings in Scotland as if they were Arctic and look toward Isolation and Insulation as per our Nordic cousins. We work with Energy saving trusts and Industry to improve performance continually.
