The upgrading of an old building or conservation can be difficult in terms of striking the right balance between original and modern. At Lawler Sustainability, we provide expert energy advice and effective services to dramatically improve energy performance.
Sustainability Strategies for Conservation
Bringing old and historic buildings up to modern-day sustainability standards presents a significant challenge that requires an experienced team.
Our expert sustainability team devises comprehensive strategies that protect the historical components and feel of a building while safeguarding its viability and longevity by improving its energy efficiency.
Strategies include implementing a carbon roadmap, identifying opportunities for mechanical and electrical system upgrades, and providing detailed reports and assessments that include practical recommendations on how to reduce running costs.
Energy Saving Solutions For
At Lawler Sustainability, we help businesses achieve Part L or NZEB Compliance.
The term NZEB (Nearly Zero Energy Buildings) is used to categorise buildings with an extremely high energy efficiency where the nearly zero or minimal amount of energy that they do require is largely generated from renewable sources.
Commercial BERs (Building Energy Ratings) is a rating of a building's energy performance, indicating its energy efficiency. Buildings are rated on a scale of A-G, with A-rated buildings achieving the most energy efficiency, and G-rated the least.
Our engineers can develop a CSR strategy to improve your company's sustainability efforts which will help to define goals that align with your company ethos.
To even further refine the overall strategy, we can assess the greenhouse gas emissions associated with a company's activities and begin the carbon mapping process.
Our Experience in Conservation
Lawler Sustainability’s experience in this sector is unmatched, working on some hugely significant conservation and redevelopment projects in recent years.
We have drastically improved the Building Energy Ratings (BERs) of buildings that date back to the late 1800s such as the National Library of Ireland.
With our knowledge and experience, we are able to drastically lower the carbon footprint of a historic building refurbishment by retaining and upgrading existing structures rather than demolishing and rebuilding.
Some of our biggest projects in this sector include.
