Building services and environmental engineering specialists

White Associates Environmental Engineers are a multi discipline building services and environmental engineering specialist consultancy. We are members of The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, The American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers, The Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers, and fully accredited Stroma SAP and Code for Sustainable Homes assessors. Our speciality is centred on looking at each development in the early stages of energy appraisal and planning compliance before progressing detailed M&E design, providing an extended designers role.

The basis of our engineering approach is that we do not need to rely on a third party to provide SAP and CFSH figures, and we always like to include these services as part of our early M&E design as these figures greatly affect and influence the design process. For this approach we are often the preferred choice of developers for advice and consultancy at planning stage as our combined knowledge of SAP, L1A, CFSH and mechanical & electrical design now play a fundamental part in the correct design of a building – whether it is advice on U Values and glazing amounts, through to plant room sizing and lift requirements.

White Associates fully appreciate the fact that the detailed mechanical & electrical (M&E) design on modern projects is reliant on the outcome of early energy assessment, appraisal of renewable requirements and predicted CO2 emissions.

Extensive M&E knowledge is applied to energy assessment decision making, ensuring that the most practical and cost effective solutions are put forward, complying with all requirements imposed under current legislation, whether planning conditions, building regulations, or CIBSE requirements.

Utilising industry standard design software, all our drawings are produced in AutoCAD or REVIT. All design calculations are carried out using Cymap TAS 2014 – the latest in building dynamic simulation software, which combined with REVIT, allows us to offer a BIM level 3 service. SAP and CFSH calculations are undertaken using Stroma software.
