Energy Design Analysis

With the drive towards 100% net zero carbon buildings presenting a challenging landscape, we work closely with our clients to develop sustainable, low carbon solutions that reduce operational energy use and future proof developments against upcoming government and local authority standards.

Giving some thought to practical matters such as energy use and sustainability at the early stages are crucial to the success of a project. The earlier potential pitfalls are identified the more time you have to develop your design around them.

From as early as concept design we help our clients to develop sustainable, low carbon solutions. With our experience in sustainable development and our expertise in advanced thermal modelling, we carry out full design reviews to offer a streamlined strategy, often resulting in significant financial savings.

To conduct our analysis, we perform all necessary energy and sustainability assessments and work closely with our clients and design team colleagues to review various aspects of the building design from low carbon heating solutions to product specification and thermal bridging performance.

The drive towards 100% net zero carbon buildings presents a challenging landscape. Engaging with an independent consultant to develop fully optimised, low to zero carbon solutions from the outset will ultimately save you time, money and of course energy.


Carbon Futures have provided consultancy support on a number of Sanctuary Scotland’s residential projects, notably Anderston Regeneration and Craigbank, Nitshill.  They offer a wide range of services to support our construction design teams ensuring that our developments exceed the minimum standards of the Scottish Building Regulations.  Regardless of scale or complexity we have always found them to be professional, efficient and proactive with the design team.  We would be happy to recommend their services and look forward to working with them on our future developments.
