Mechanical Design

We drive value and sustainability from the outset. When it comes to cost-effective energy efficiency, less is more.


A heating system that’s easy to control is essential for comfort and wellbeing. We provide heating systems that put you in control. Depending on your needs, there are options for any traditional, low carbon or renewable heating technology for performance without compromise. Our expertise in providing simple, user-friendly heating solutions regardless of size and complexity is recognised throughout the UK.

Mechanical heating

Putting people first

From turning on a tap to closing a door, people want to be in control of their own environment and comfort. Providing mechanical services such as heating, cooling, hot and cold water, ventilation and drainage allows us to live and breathe within our buildings without having to think very much about it. Because we approach mechanical services with an innovative mindset, we can support your building’s primary functions simply, effectively and without much extra input from you. When we take on the challenge of optimising your mechanical services, we add, change and refine only what’s necessary to give you the best result.

We take the complex and make it simple

Our creativity and innovation allow us to deploy mechanical services in a way that minimises complexity. The result for you is a suite of mechanical services that are thoughtfully considered and cost optimal – during both installation and operation. We’ll strip back the jargon and share with you our straightforward ideas for your project.

Let’s get pointed in the right direction

Orientation of your building has a huge effect on mechanical services. The height between floors does too. At the early stages of a build, you can use passive approaches to building layout, design and orientation to eliminate the need for mechanical services. Flank walls can help to keep western facing offices cool in warmer months. Increased window area allows for greater amounts of natural ventilation and daylight.

How insulation sustainably wraps a building (not too much, but not too little) can have a significant impact on energy loads. Understanding that mechanical services don’t sit in splendid isolation but are directly influenced by building design helps us to harmonise passive and traditional mechanical approaches. As mechanical services experts, we’re here to help you optimise your building in a cost-effective way.
