AEA Launches New Sustainable Construction Service

AEA, the leading energy and climate change consultancy, has launched a new Sustainable Construction capability to enable commercial and public bodies to respond to concerns about the impact of buildings upon the environment.

The practice provides a design and specification review for new buildings and refurbishment projects. The review covers all relevant aspects of energy efficiency and renewable energy, materials selection, water use, sustainable drainage, waste and ecology.

AEA is also able to provide Building modelling, Energy Performance Certificates, Display Energy Certificates, SAP calculation, BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes assessment and to draft corporate energy/sustainability policies. AEA believes this new capability will be vital to businesses as regulatory and customer demands increase, together with the desire by companies to demonstrate best practice during every phase of the construction process.

“The built environment accounts for more than a third of the UK’s CO2 emissions and has a wide impact on resource use, water consumption, flood risk, ecology and human health,” said Nigel Griffiths, Principal Consultant for Sustainable Construction.

“We have to take into account future resource scarcity and ensure that building materials do not pollute the external and internal environment”.
