How We Help

Inform, Help, Deliver

We can add value throughout your project, delivering a service that flexes to your needs. We typically work on projects between RIBA stages 2-6:

RIBA Stage

At stage 2 we equip you with the expertise and guidance you need for early concept designs and pre-planning. This is where we can be creative with construction types, building services and technologies.

We’ll ensure that you not only hit the brief, but are also able to entrench sustainable design from the start.

At stage 3 we support you throughout the planning phases, providing a comprehensive suite of assessments, surveys and environmental reporting to ensure a swift and successful application.

Taking the lead from your local planning policy, we can address the key environmental issues, with preliminary energy assessments, BREEAM reporting, energy strategy reports, acoustics, flood risk analysis and much more.

At stage 4 we start to apply our deep technical skills, ensuring that the finalised detailed design is compliant with building regulations and planning conditions.

We also ensure that any planning conditions from stage 3 are being met. We then wrap up all of the reporting for building control submission.

Throughout the build we work with contractors to ensure that the build remains compliant and that any changes are managed to reduce risk.

We also take care of 1st fix diagnostic air testing and prepare for pre-completion testing for sound, air and ventilation compliance.

Finally we manage a smooth completion and handover process, delivering final testing, reporting and certification for sign off.

We work to suit the needs of your project, whether that’s a one-off assessment, a white labelled resource when you need it, or a fully managed, long term support across projects and disciplines.

However you choose to engage with us, you will get us at our best.

"HPW Architecture Ltd engaged Build Energy to assist with a planning application for a residential development in Ealing, London. The project involved onerous sustainability standards and we worked closely with Build Energy to ensure we delivered a commercially viable solution. From the very first introductory meeting they provided a first class service by helping to demystify the whole process and demonstrated excellent knowledge. We have found their experience and advice invaluable and would have no hesitation recommending their services"
