Passive Low Energy Design (PLED)
Our Passive Low Energy Design service helps inform the project team
on how to design a comfortable building that require less energy
than a ‘standard’ building by defining an overall energy
strategy beginning at an early concept stage.
This is accomplished by exploring and optimising
the thermal performance of the envelope, solar control, and the use
of natural lighting and ventilation.
Then by quantifying and qualifying the design
and decision criteria – often
with design-based computer modeling - suitable passive, mechanical
or hybrid systems can be evaluated for best performance and cost
