“WE BELIEVE SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS CAN BE DESIGNED MOST SUCCESSFULLY WHEN ALL DISCIPLINES COLLABORATE FROM DAY ONE.” Bob Spittle, chair of environmental engineering
BDP’s Environmental Design Studios house building services, mechanical, electrical, public health and infrastructure engineers, specialist lighting designers, acoustic and sustainability consultants, BREEAM assessors and building physicists.
Our engineering teams collaborate with other design professionals, drawing on our pool specialist to deliver cutting edge award winning projects.
BDP’s engineers are great communicators; working in a multidisciplinary practice means they must be able to explain complex technical issues in a way that is understandable to non-engineers. They are happy to engage with stakeholders, building users and designers as they know that this is key to delivering successful projects.
True sustainability lies in meeting the 'triple bottom line' of environmental, social and economic considerations; we help clients meet these aims without incurring higher capital costs. Please click on sustainability for further information.
Controlled innovation is key to delivering successful project without exposing clients to excessive risk. BDP was the first company to be awarded the BRE Global’s BIM level 2 Certificate, this places BDP at the forefront of digital engineering.
We are part of the BSRIA Soft Landings Executive and are advocates of the Soft Landings approach, engaging with stake holders and end users throughout the design process to ensure that design solutions and delivered buildings are understood and welcomed by end-users and perform, as designed.
