Ze had a great time last week presenting to Stride Treglown’s Cardiff office about the new developments we have going on at MACH. As always, the team there had some good questions and were really inquisitive about the new services we are now providing and how they could benefit them as a practise.
Low carbon design and ventilation systems have always been a big interest to us, so it seemed a logical step to start looking in to these areas of design and how they interact with acoustics.
This ‘holistic design’ approach centres around the balancing of thermal gains, ventilation and noise, which is affected by the façade U-values, glazing area, window types, ventilation strategy and external noise environment. It is only by working on all these design aspects that you can make sure that each element compliments the other.
We are also able to offer Passivhaus design consultancy too. Both Emily and Max are both certified Passivhaus consultants and have already started work on a number of developments in London.
We are now able to offer design advice for the following areas of design;
- Part L Compliance
- Building Physics Modelling
- Thermal Comfort Assessment
- Façade Optimisations
- Passivhaus Consultancy
