Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency tile

Buildings account for almost 50% of energy used in the UK. We, as professionals, aim to reduce this through optimal design. Our mission is to deliver buildings that provide satisfactory internal conditions and services with minimal energy consumption while minimizing to environmental impact.

We adapt environmental design strategies, addressing the interactions between building envelope, MEP systems and building users. We implement the holistic design approach and always consider all the key aspects of the building design process such as conceptual issues, end-user satisfaction, and operational performance, thermal and visual comfort.

Services:

  • Energy efficiency assessments
  • Low and Zero Carbon Feasibility studies
  • Building performance assessments (energy modelling and simulations)
  • Energy audits
  • Project Management
  • Energy and Indoor Air Quality monitoring
  • Post-occupancy evaluation (POE) assessments and thermal comfort studies
  • Building Life Cycle Analysis
  • Daylighting Analysis
  • Thermal Bridging Analysis

Case Studies

Vantage Point
(Birmingham-UK)

Vantage Point

In collaboration with the Black Country Housing Group, Exergy has been invited to design a solar PV system for a curved-roof care home development, located in Birmingham, UK. This 143kWp system consists of 551 x 260Wp solar modules be installed flat to the roof to maximise the space available.

John Laing Building
(Coventry-UK)

John Laing case study tile

The John Laing Building is situated in Coventry, UK and is part of the Coventry University district. This building was created in Revit to provide a 3D interactive model with intelligent data for partners within the project. These partners from outside the UK were able to extrapolate results directly from the model to simulate particular environmental scenarios.
