Building Physics

From the inception of a project right through to building handover and beyond, Jones King Partnership provides clients with valuable advice and experience on every aspect of a building’s performance

Utilising the most up to date Dynamic Simulation Modelling (DSM) software we can analyse large and complex buildings to make an accurate assessment of energy consumption, CO2 emissions, operating costs and anticipated comfort levels for building occupants

Working closely with our clients and the design team from concept/feasibility right through the design process, we provide assistance and guidance to help understand how early decisions can impact upon the energy consumption, carbon emissions, daylight and thermal comfort of a building.  These decisions are influenced by using ‘evaluation tools’ such as DSM software, EDSL TAS however this does not replace intellectual effort and ‘engineering judgement’ that is applied to each and every project

With our extensive knowledge of building physics we treat the building as a system with parameters that should be met, i e comfortable internal temperatures, high indoor air quality, adequate ventilation and high visual acuity (lighting).  We believe that the aspirations of our clients should be met, providing a building that meets with the needs of the users

Whether planning a low carbon or zero carbon building the Jones King Partnership Sustainability team is here to help!

Lighting Design / Daylighting / CBDM

 At Jones King Partnership we believe that the well being and experience of building occupants can be greatly influenced by creating well lit and pleasing environments in which people can live and work

Smartly lit buildings can enhance the architectural design finishes and materials to provide visually pleasing environments.  We work closely with our clients and as part of design teams to create imaginative lighting designs for all building types and applications

The lighting of a building can be by either natural or artificial means.  We create designs that meet and exceed current standards, provide energy efficient solutions and ensure the safety and security of all occupants

To achieve these aims we use the latest software packages such as Dialux and TAS, including climate based daylight modelling, to ensure that our designs are optimized for visual and energy efficient performance.  Communicating fully at all times we also provide visual representations at early stages to inform our clients and the design team

 

Renewable Energy Design

Renewable energy design considers the use of natural resources which can enhance and benefit the energy performance of a building.  The energy profile of a building, along with legislative requirements and financial considerations are balanced against these natural resources.  Whatever the solution we can provide expert advice tailored to your needs

As part of the design process, we assess all aspects of renewable energy design, providing a detailed analysis of site suitability, energy and carbon dioxide savings, capital costs, financial benefits and payback times

We strongly believe that renewable energy technologies should not be seen as a ‘bolt on’ to pass the Part L tick box.  Whether designing a single small residence or a large scale development we can provide the expertise to provide an impartial view on the renewable energy market enabling the most suitable technologies to be incorporated into your project

Our renewable energy design services include

  • Feasibility studies
  • Low / zero carbon and renewable energy reports for inclusion in planning submission
  • Feed-in-Tariffs (FITS), Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and legislative advice
