Objectives and Design Approach

We seek optimum, effective and sustainable outcomes for our Client and society. We inform our Clients of the range of options available. These can include the energy, life cycle, capital costs, societal impacts, and the resulting comfort and effectiveness of the installations.

We prefer to work on an agreed fixed fee basis, wherever it is possible to determine the scope of work in advance. This is usually more effective for our Clients. If a time-basis fee ("hourly charge") is necessary, we can discuss methods of cost control to eliminate any surprises.

We work on projects where a full consulting service is required, and also where we can assist the Client with specific aspects of the design, tendering or inspections. This adds our skills and adds value to the capabilities that the Client has presently available. This reduces the Client's overall costs and targets our skills.
