Sustainability

We are focused on delivering sustainable buildings for our clients. When we are first appointed we take the time to understand the client’s objectives, budget, programme and their desire to include sustainable solutions. Our M&E engineers work closely with our in-house Building & Energy Modelling Team to look at the best building services solutions to reduce the client’s energy consumption and their carbon emissions.

Low Carbon Design

S I Sealy  have long promoted sustainable and low carbon design solutions through a holistic approach by bringing together all the building designers and technical specialists needed to optimise the performance of a new building or retrofit an existing building.

We have helped many clients realise their sustainability and low carbon aspirations, such as the BREEAM Outstanding and better than net zero caron Coop HQ,  numerous low carbon extra care development’s such Burnage Lane, Abbey Hey Lane, Maple West, Oak Priory and Willow Barns, low carbon schools that comply with the London Plan such as Paxton Primary and Whitehall Park Primary. We are also currently working with the coop retail group to advise on reducing the embedded and operational carbon of their new convenience store by 80%.

Our expertise covers the key areas of reducing carbon emissions and Part L compliance, together with advising on climate change, optimising orientation, thermal comfort, daylighting & well-being. For carbon our goal is for all of our projects to be “Net Carbon Zero” in operational carbon.
