Efficiency & Engineering

Improving building energy performance

We provide professional consultancy services to make buildings more energy efficient and improve the working environment for the people in them.

If you own or occupy buildings where the internal working environment is never right, you already know that it can lead to complaints and dissatisfied employees.

Low Carbon Alliance has successfully integrated commercial property consultancy with in-house engineering expertise to assist property owners and occupiers in making challenging and significant decisions on building repairs, maintenance and energy efficiency measures.

It is often difficult to achieve best value when a building owner or occupier faces a decision based on operational concerns with heavily caveated engineering reports. It is typical to have separate advice from a management consultant and an independent engineering consultancy, which often leads to unnecessary expenditure and missed opportunities.

Client focussed discussions between property owner, facilities management and engineering consultant will realise opportunities that otherwise could be missed. Opportunities include subsidies, grants and tax reliefs that can be used in conjunction with repairs and improvement projects.

We understand the relationship between a building, its building services components (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, power & IT equipment) and their corresponding energy consumption, cost and carbon emission. See some of our case studies here.

As well as experience in integrating renewable energy technologies into commercial buildings, our engineers have expertise in the efficient use of energy storage. Batteries are much more than simple energy stores when they are integrated with renewable energy generators, electric vehicle charging and efficient energy procurement.
