Energy Strategies & Feasibility Studies

Whitecode Design Associates have produced many Energy Strategies for a variety of developments and clients. Most of our Energy Strategies have been used for successful planning applications. We work closely with the Design Team to ensure that the best solution is applied to the development, which will be achievable through the design and construction stages and not providing unrealistic targets.


Whitecode Design Associates Ltd have accredited Sustainability Consultants who are able to carry out sample SAP calculations for domestic applications and sample SBEM calculations for non-domestic applications using NHER Plan Assessor and IES VE software.

Using the sample calculations, different technologies and building fabric specifications can be investigated to determine the best specification for the development.

The predicted energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions can be calculated accurately so the design can be determined at an early stage in the development. This allows us to provide a proposed specification relevant to the development that provides the best savings to the environment and Client.

As Energy Strategies are generally carried out using architectural floor plans, and sections and elevations where available, Whitecode Design Associates Ltd can complete Energy Strategies across the country.

We have delivered Energy Strategies for small and large scale developments, consisting of offices, commercial/retail units and dwellings.
