City architecture want to help their clients to see that ‘sustainability’ is more than just a buzzword and to show how sustainable construction can have tangible effects that can benefit them.
By definition good design is sustainable design and city architecture believe that sustainability should be inherently part of the design process not a standalone addition or an ad on.
There are 3 key areas to consider
Maximise Passive Design
- Optimize natural daylight
- Very high levels of insulation
- Air tight construction
- Triple glazed windows
Minimise Active Design
- By maximizing solar gain this reduces the need for artificial light
- High insulation levels minimize the need for space heating
- PV panels for the generation of electricity
- Solar thermal panels for producing hot water
- Air source heat pumps
- Ground source heat pumps
- Biomass boilers
Whilst our priority is to comply with the clients brief we believe that we can tailor a sustainable solution in order exceed you expectations.
City architecture can advise you on your construction project whether its building a low energy home through to what tariffs’ are available either through the (FIT) Feed in Tariffs’ or (RHI) the Renewable heat incentive.
