One of the unique features of SEED is that we will happily draw on three sources of knowledge for your project – forensic knowledge from the site, computer modelling, and grey hair.
Forensic knowledge comes from our commissioning team and the IEQ laboratory. We can measure the site’s condition and provide consultancy based on actual findings as opposed to desktop studies. This tells us what your building is actually already doing.
Our computer modelling includes energy and capacity modelling in addition to odour nuisance, fire and evacuation, and comfort prediction. This tells us what your building is capable of doing.
Grey hair is from our design directors. They are experienced designers and know how to integrate forensic engineering and modelling with their own knowledge to steer a course from where your building is to where it needs to be. Armed with ‘performance approaches’, they sidestep code restrictions on the basis that the end result complies with code’s performance requirements.
