Harley Haddow Launches New division to Bolster Net Zero Offering
As we continue to place decarbonisation goals at the core of our business, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new Building Performance and Sustainability division off the back of burgeoning demand for Net Zero services as government targets loom.
Harley Haddow has added additional skillsets to the BP&S team with the inclusion of NABERS assessor accreditations and skills in design for performance modelling, which will ensure that energy performance modelling aids delivery of energy targets for buildings.
Led by Principal Building Performance engineer Lindsay Adams, who heads our BPS team of dedicated representatives in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and London, the new division has been consolidated and enhanced to focus on diversifying their skills to meet changing market demands.
As a business, we have long pioneered a sustainable approach, with our designs embedding sustainable, low energy and low carbon building principles and we are grateful to have been awarded recognition in the field of building energy performance, sustainability and Net Zero.
Net Zero has been a huge growth area for Harley Haddow in recent years, particularly as public and private organisations recognise the need to act now to be able to achieve Net Zero targets and harness the opportunities of improving new and existing builds to reduce carbon emissions here meeting targets is essential, particularly as the built environment currently contributes some 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions and it is estimated that the construction sector contributes up to 11% of global carbon emissions.
Lindsay Adams, Head of the Building Performance and Sustainability division and Principal sustainability engineer at Harley Haddow, said:
“It is a hugely exciting time as we move forward with our growth plans, and add to our range of skills with our new Building Performance and Sustainability division to meet exceptional demand in this area.
“With UK government targets of achieving Net Zero by 2050, and 2045 in Scotland – this is of course, absolutely crucial to get right in the construction industry.
“Bringing our Net Zero experts together in this way and diversifying our skills to meet market expectations and need through our new division is a great step for us, particularly with ongoing regulatory changes.”
