With offices at one end of the spectrum and warehouses at the other and accounting for everything in between presents an enormously diverse range of building types. Add to that a multitude of different uses and occupational patterns in buildings of just about any size demonstrates the complexities of design associated with such developments. In short, no two buildings will be remotely similar!

These buildings can be offices, densely packed with people at desks with computers and high lighting levels consuming energy and dissipating heat at an alarming rate, or enormous warehouses where loading bays are open in all weathers, or process and manufacturing plants where electrical distribution to drive machinery may well be the critical issue.

The flexible approach that Applied Energy always takes to its projects is particularly appropriate to all these types of building, whatever their size or use. In common they all need to meet the statutory regulations but beyond that the extent and type of service provision to be made will very much depend on the proposed usage. Account also needs to be taken of risk mitigation and the necessity for security of operation by the provision of in-built redundancy.

Applied Energy has the particular skills necessary to enable them to properly analyse the peculiarities of each building and the expectations of its owner or user, to understand their particular requirements and their attitude to risk and to develop solutions that satisfy these in the most cost effective and environmentally friendly manner.
