Design Services

RPS Building Services Engineers provide both initial concept and detailed design services across a broad spectrum of sectors including Healthcare, Education, Commercial, Retail, Residential, Mixed Use, Transport and Aviation, Industrial and Logistics, Energy from Waste, Social Housing and Student Accommodation.

Our engineers work with the latest software tools to undertake Building Physics Studies, Energy Analysis and Sustainability Studies to inform our design work, which is regularly recognised by awards bodies such as British Council for Offices, LABC and Constructing Excellence.

As part of a multi-disciplinary, environmentally led business, our engineers are culturally aligned to working in collaboration with other disciplines and with a focus on holistic design solutions for environmental control and the achievement of comfort conditions with optimum and appropriate energy usage.

Sustainability and Low Carbon solutions to servicing complex buildings are the key drivers behind much of our work.

The use of the latest 3D design packages and Building Information Modelling enables all of our designs to be fully analysed and co-ordinated within architectural and structural forms, however complex.
