Designing the Future
D&d Building Services Consulting Engineers are proud to be associated with their many clients. We are passionate about design solutions.
We employ experienced and talented individuals to deliver forward-thinking Building Services solutions for all projects.
We are extremely focused on the client’s needs and recognise the importance of working very closely with all project team members. We are keen to understand the client’s requirements at the earliest opportunity to ensure they are carefully integrated into the design solution.
The practice was established in 1997 and since then has built up an enviable portfolio of clients in virtually all industry sectors. We have an excellent reputation for reliability, value for money design solutions, technical expertise and innovative design solutions.
Building Services Consultancy
We provide building services consultancy in the following:
Public Health and Drainage
Building Management and Controls
We provide either the “traditional design” or “performance specifications, employer’s requirements documents” according to the client requirements.
We are often engaged by clients to inspect a building that they are proposing to acquire.
A visual inspection is carried out and a detailed report produced.
The report will include an assessment of the condition of the existing services, their suitability for future use and budgetary costs for the works that would be needed to bring the services up to an acceptable standard.
Sustainable & Renewable Energy
We have undertaken a number of studies for clients to investigate the feasibility and viability of incorporating sustainable and renewable energy solutions into projects.
These are a few examples of solutions that have been incorporated into some recent projects:
Grey water reclamation
Ground source heat pumps
The Government has recently introduced the Energy Performance Buildings Directive (EPBD) with the objective of making buildings more energy efficient. Under the EPBD, two types of certificates have been introduced:
Energy Performance Certificates
Display Energy Certificates
These Certificates can only be registered by qualified Energy Assessors who have been accredited by a Government approved scheme and who use approved software systems. D&d Building Services Consulting Engineers offer this service to new and existing clients.
Building Simulation and Modelling
We use the latest TAS Dynamic Simulation and Hevacomp Design Simulation software to model detailed building and plant response.
For example, the effect of opening windows on room overheating can be simulated. The frequency that overheating will occur can be checked (number of hours/annum a room temperature is exceeded).
The Design Simulation software is used to check compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations using dynamic thermal simulations.
We provide Energy Performance Certificates to level 5 complexity.
