Partnering with Architects
At Princedale we have the engineering expertise to create the technical design and build from an architect’s plans. Whether working on a challenging retrofit, a multi-storey Passivhaus project or creating a new build we will work in partnership with you deliver on your vision.
- We have the necessary technical knowledge and experience to understand how to take a Passivhaus project from the architect’s vision to efficiently deliver a high quality period property retrofit or new ‘naked house’ build, with all energy services installed, ready for the chosen contractor to fit out.
- We deploy multi-skilled teams as a central part of our strategy for managing the new skillsets needed for low carbon buildings, running sites with “Skills Matrix Managers”. This means better management of both skills and costs and less need for outsourcing. It also means that everyone on the project understands the context of what they are doing meaning fewer problems and quicker issue resolution.
- We are solution led – in particular with retrofit projects which tend to throw up unique challenges as the project progresses, and in addition to learning from each project we complete, we have developed a number of our own low energy technologies in the process. In particular our triple-glazed sash effect windows are currently the only product of their type on the market and have been approved for use in a conservation area*
